Went with a date to this restaurant. First the staff was very friendly upon arrival and I waited for my date who was held up in traffic. The bar is proficient and makes a good quality drink. We sat at a table near the window and ordered the Cajun Shrimp for an appetizer. It was OK but the shrimp were... More

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with our Best man & Matron of honor and their spouses. I had called to book a table early in the week and asked for a table near the window having been there before. We arrived and front desk staff greeted us and congratulated us.

This place was recommended to us by the front desk staff at our hotel. It's in an upscale shopping area and the food and drinks were good. Excellent calamari as an appetizer, prepared quite differently with what I'll call fingers rather than the usual rings, and glazed. Entrees selected included so-called Maryland crab cakes (I'm from Maryland and they were... More

It's my first time doing a review, but Dressler's is well worth it! I visited Dressler's during the weekend of NYE 2015. It was a celebratory dinner for my friend who was just proposed to that weekend. The service was impeccable. Our server asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told them about the engagement. He then came... More

On a recent business trip we used Tripadvisor to choose a restaurant for a business dinner. I'm so glad that we did. The service, atmosphere, and food was amazing in so many ways. Everyone left raving about their meals and our experience. Looking forward to my next trip to visit Dresslers again!

Several friends had told us about Dressler as a good restaurant for a date night. So we went. We had a good experience overall. The food was good but unimpressive. The service staff wasn't too cordial. However, our biggest disappointment was at the price of the special. Usually, the specials are price accordingly to a similar item on the menu.... More

My husband and I decided to try Dresslers after reading the great reviews and looking for a new date night spot. We are definitely glad that we did. We made reservations for Friday night, which I highly recommend doing since the restaurant and bar were both packed. Parking at Birkdale can be a bit of a pain, especially on a... More
