We stated our return trip from Venice,Florida on New Years Eve day, expecting to drive until we were tired, find a motel, have a nice meal if possible, retire for the night and continue our journey on New Years Day. We ended up in Huntersville NC, and managed to get 9:30 PM reservations at Dresslers. Wow. Yes we waited about... More

let me preface this by saying we just moved here from Charleston so maybe I'm being a little unfair since I have little to compare it to in the area. We had a reservation New Year's Eve, we were directed to the bar and wait for table where we stood for nearly 30 minutes since there was no where to... More

For our 24th anniversary we had dinner at Dressler's... a perfect choice. The rack of lamb was perfectly prepared, and the service was professional and gracious. Our server asked if it was a special occasion, and so brought us a wonderful dessert, compliments of the house. And a young couple at the next table - complete strangers to us -... More

Nice, high end place in LKN. Good service, nice wine selections, good food with specials that are based on what they source. Not cheap, but very well worth it.

This was our first visit to Dresslers since they closed their Max's Alley Restaurant in Concord a couple of years ago. We started with the Low County Crab appetizer which had very large chunks of crab meat. My wife went with the sea bass over lobster risotto while I had the pan seared scallops. Both meals came hot out of... More

This restaurant has a respectfully laid-back atmosphere, a diverse menu and moderate pricing. It was a pleasant surprise to dine in such a place, the food was superb, the sait staff available yet unobtrusive. A lovely evening.

Dresslers is one of my favorite restaurants in the Lake Norman area. I love the warm goat cheese and garlic appetizer. The calamari is also amazing. We have never had a bad meal or dessert here. They often have Groupon deals sometimes which is also nice. Walking around Birkdale before or after your meal is also great!
