“Great combination of service and quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Dressler's is a fantastic restaurant in the trendy Birkdale Village. Sitting among other nice restaurants, I normally pick Dressler's because of the nice combination of ambiance, quality of food, and service.

I travel to North Carolina for business and this is a great place to take customers or be entertained by suppliers. The environment is perfect for business, and quiet enough for a more intimate dinner.

Food quality has always been fantastic and their wine selection is very good. We did have a situation where they ran out of the wine choice we had made, only having one bottle, but it was OK in the end as the service was of excellent quality, as usual.

The only knock on the restaurant is that it is rather expensive, but you generally get what you pay for and in this case, you do here in my opinion.

The food quality has always been excellent and the choices are adequate for this kind of restaurant. Those who criticize the selection - well, I am not sure what they are seeking, some kind of coney island or diner?

Desserts are really good, most of which are homemade by the owner's wife (I think), but I normally am too full for the choices!

“IMPECCABLE SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Excellent choice for a anniversity or birthday .This is an upscale restaurant with some of the best service I have ever encountered . Enjoyed Duck which is an unusual entree. My wife had Salmon which was also excellent. Owners are hands on who thanked me as i left the restaurant. Hint Dresslers is not inexpensive and not intended to be.So you may want to look at the menu at their website before visiting.

“Just OK food for a large price tag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

My husband bought a Groupon to try this place out. I can't say we would ever go back. The food was pretty average and costs quite a bit more than it should. There is not a huge selection of options either. Actually the only thing we would rave about was the deserts which are made fresh. The service was mediocre and the atmosphere is not lively at all. Just not worth the time and money for a young couples date nite.

“Fabulous food, attentive staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

It's been a couple of years since we had dinner here; usually cocktails and appetizers on the porch (fabulous tenderloin appetizer). Hubby and I both had fabulous meals; halibut and ribeye - both excellent. Good wine selection by the glass and/or bottle. The staff is quite pleasant and attentive. The GM at this location is a stand-up guy! We'll be back for dinner - it was great!
