Chef’s Corner: Appetizers!


Welcome to Chef’s Corner. Each month, we highlight some of our favorite foods from Dressler’s Restaurant. This month we are featuring some of our fabulous appetizers.

Meet friends after work and enjoy our delicious appetizers and drinks. Our bar and lounge areas are warm, welcoming, and the perfect way to relax at the end of a busy day.

Both Metropolitan and Birkdale restaurants feature large high top lounge tables and a happening bar that is available for full dinners, wine, and appetizers. Kevin, Jeff, Jack, Ellis, Megan, Kelly, Kay, and Briggs are the names behind the pretty faces (and Kevin) and are all fantastic! Birkdale features one of the best bars in the Lake Norman area for single malts, while the Metropolitan offers a strong craft beer and cocktail program.

Enjoy half price on all appetizers in the bar and lounge Monday-Friday from 5-7 p.m. Stop in and see us tonight to try some of these delicious selections from our Metro and Birkdale menus.
