Elegant atmosphere, delicious food, and great service!

We wanted a “just the girls” evening — LKNConnect’s Designing Doctor Margi Kyle, Martini Queen Debbie Amyotte and myself, Ellen Stafford, Managing Editor. None of us have big appetites so we decided to celebrate with drinks, appetizers, and of course, dessert!

LKNConnect’s Margi Kyle and Dressler’s Best Smile — Bobbie!


Debbie chose champagne for a sparkly change from martinis and Margi and I chose red wine from their tremendous selection.. Our server’s name was Bobbie and she was a gem! Friendly, knowledgeable and the best smile ever!

The Wedgie salad – iceberg lettuce, blue cheese crumbles, apple wood smoke bacon and onions.


My favorite things to eat are small plates. We each ordered 2 appetizers and there was plenty to taste and share. French onion soup (both Debbie and I had to try it), the Wedgie salad, Blackened beef medallions, Thai peanut calamari, and Lump crab cake were our choices.

Blackened Beef Medallions – cooked to perfection!
Flaky Lump Crab Cake with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli.
Thai Peanut Calamari – Calamari fillet strips, wasabi aioli, and peanut sauce. Yum!

You cannot miss dessert!

We shared Mom’s cheesecake (lemony creamy deliciousness sprinkled with cinnamon on top) and the expresso chocolate cake (serious amounts of chocolaty, creamy heaven).

Mom’s Cheesecake is the best I’ve eaten in a long time!
If you love chocolate, you’ll love their Espresso Chocolate Cake!

What a great evening of fun, food & friendship!

For your next “Girls Night Out,” try Dressler’s!

Hands down, Margi had the best purse for a “Girls Night Out!”
