    We’ve gone here many times over the years. Usually great. Last night, not so much. Halibut was very fishy (yes, I know it’s fish but it shouldn’t smell so badly). My wife’s pork chop was very dry. Appetizer of bbq shrimp was good as was the crab dip. G’s salad was drenched in dressing. Totally overpriced for what we got. May not be back again.

    Amazing food, our waiter was great! His name was Gil and I felt taken care of the whole night. He’s great, pay him double of whatever he makes already lol. I’m coming back next weekend. I can’t stop thinking about the food. It was delicious.

    We were not advised after purchasing drinks and dessert that a 20% tip was already added, we gave an additional 22% on top of that. Would have been nice to know it was already included in the charge. We didn’t realize until we got home.

    Wonderful experience! My best friend and I had Galantine's day here, and it was very lovely! We were able to eat here due to being around 20 minutes late for our reservation because of a car accident on the interstate. We had called before our original reservation time passed to let the restaurant know. They were very calm and reassuring! Will eat her again! Thank you so much!

    We recently took a group of 8 for dinner to celebrate our mother's birthday. Some of the food was excellent (short ribs, salads, goat cheese appetizer, desserts) other entrees weren't cooked to requested temperature (lamb). One person's 8 oz filet was 1/2 that size, very dry and at a price of $60 for the steak alone. By far the worst part of the evening was our server. He was clearly counting on the fact he would get a required 20% gratuity due to our party size. He never greeted us as a group, read specials or even refilled drinks. The best service we got was from a lovely server at the next table (who's lucky guests were clearly having a totally different dining experience). She took pity on us and took care of our drinks, etc. mid meal when our server was no where to be found. The manager did also stop by to check on us early in the evening and to wish my our mother a happy birthday which was nice. Hostess was great. Had we not been celebrating a birthday, no doubt much more vocal complaints would have been made throughout especially when we got hit with the 20% tip. That server didn't deserve half of that. And really put on a damper on the whole evening. It was embarrassing to say the least to those of us hosting to have selected a restaurant with these embarrassing issues. For most of us, it was our first trip to Dresslers, and we had high hopes. Sadly, very unlikely any of us will ever be back. For Dressler's price point, and in many cases for considerably less, there are too many restaurants in town that deliver equal or better food and infinitely better service - especially for an obvious special occasion.

    Dressler’s is always great! Our favorite place for a Delmonico steak. Both our steaks were a little tough this time and not up to Dressler’s standards we are accustomed to.

    I have been a big fan of Dressler's for years; many good dinners. This time, we were in a back dining area which was not as pleasant, in addition the steak we ordered was really not worth the price. I should have sent it back to the kitchen, but because I was with my son and his wife decided not to pursue that option. I may not be back.

    We ordered Medium Steaks ; they came out well done. I expressed concern and told they were medium in the center. Got home and they were well done. Not accustomed to that from this restaurant. John and Kim have always run a tight ship here. Now that Birkdale is closed-I’m not sure I’d go again

    We were lucky enough to have Gil as our server. Charming, knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive, he handled our dinner well. We were there during Queen’s Feast, so had the preselected menu items — pimento cheese with toasted baguette and calamari with a somewhat spicy sauce, then both had wedge salad and 6 oz filet, with mashed potatoes. All was well prepared, although the filet wasn’t as tender as some I’ve had at Dressler’s. Good wine selection. With its high ceilings, the restaurant can be pretty noisy, especially if seated near a large group. Overall, we enjoyed out meal and our night out,
