This is a quiet restaurant - I have never seen any advertising, wife heard of it from friends. It is also relatively quiet inside, something so few restaurants seem to offer anymore. We like to hear each other without raising our voices. The food, ah the food -so good and reasonably priced for the quality, ambience and service. If they... More

The G's Salad with goat cheese, walnuts and a really good balsamic vinaigrette was recommended by a nice guy sitting next to me at the bar. As he frequents Dressler's quite a bit, he also suggested the New Orleans shrimp to pair with salad for a light meal. He bought me a very nice Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay that complemented...

Great restaurant for a special celebration or even a spur-of-the moment meal. Good atmosphere, pleasant staff and outstanding food. Little turnover in staff so it is almost like having a friend waiting on you. A creature of habit, I always order the calamari appetizer and the rack of lamb entree - really good. Good wine selection and excellent martinis!

We arrived early for our reservation and was directed to the bar to wait since we were waiting for our third person to arrive. There was standing room only and basically no other waiting area. After about 30 minutes we were summoned to the dining room and our third person had just arrived. We were seated, luckily, in a horseshoe... More

We celebrated New Year's Eve with a wonderful dinner at Dressler's. The food was fabulous--husband had a perfectly cooked filet and I had a delicious Salmon dish with a lemon cream sauce, which I will definitely order again. One thing I liked is that they offered their usual menu with a couple of specials rather than an expensive Fixed Price... More

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.

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.
