The Dresden Hotel is a must stop for food and/or drinks whenever driving through, passing by, getting near, or simply thinking of the Dresden or Finger Lakes area! A lovely local restaurant and bar featuring a fully stocked bar, extremely knowledgeable bartender, pool sharks, a piano, and great company. Reading this review right now looking for a place to eat and/or drink in the area? Stop reading and just go here for a great local time and good food! And finally- calling all Ohioans who know what Skyline Chili is... they have it HERE! Truly enjoyed the entire experience and people at the Dresden Hotel and will make it a point to stop here our next time through the Finger Lakes!
I am afraid to even write a review about this place because it truly is a "sleeper" find. I don't want anyone else to find out about it! Great food with that old time atmosphere inside. We got there early around 6:00pm. Its late Fall and it was dark outside. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 2 for the outside. But don't let that stop you! The inside is warm and inviting but the outside is rough. We were the first car in the parking lot. It was dark and not well lit. The owners greeted us and gave us a warm welcome and a tour of the main floor. The place is immaculately clean. They have a ballroom and a kitchen that can host up to 250 people! There is a ton of history in this place. If you are on a wine tour of Seneca Lake this should be your final stop so you can have dinner! Walter Taylor used to come here and trade artwork for dinner! The chef (owner) takes great pride in his servings. They also have a small wine wall (about the size of an armour) where you can choose a fine bottle of wine (from $30 to $150!). Excellent selections. Or, just have the daily house wine.. All-in-all, a great place that you would never expect to find. Tell your limo driver! "We have to stop here!"
Best food and wonderful service. A hidden gem that should be more advertised for a nice dinner with terrific atmosphere and quaint qualities. The owners are very involved with all events.. if you need an easy job...APPLY....LOVE THIS PLACE.
Nice place. Owners very sweet, good food and friendly.
We thought it was closed, permanently, until we saw a lighted "Open" sign. Should have heeded the warning. The bar area looks like the website, no idea were the dining area shown on line is but not where we were served. The 2 people working were friendly but the food, I had lake perch, was marginal at best. The menu is very large but it might be optimistic in terms of delivery. Maybe stop by for a burger at lunch but first dinner, drive a few minutes further into Watkins Glen or Geneva.
