My husband and I went out to AC Bar & Grill the last week in January with another couple for dinner. We ordered the crab and lobster bisque soup for an appetizer. Cost was $8.00 not worth the price i would skip that and try something else. The crab cakes were delicious as usual. The server was ok not great.... More

The food is terrible. The salads are pre-maid and come right out of the fridge. The produce is all bad and overripe. My balsamic dressing was so thick I could not even pour it. My shrimp was so overcooked it was hard rubber! The food is not made fresh. It taste days old. The place is loud and the lighting... More

This is just a downright great place to eat! I've had the whole lobster before but this time it was the crab stuffed lobster tails and wow! So good! Great experience for our party of five. Oh, and a great margarita too!

We were in AC for the Fleetwood Mac concert on a cold windy Saturday in January. Looking for an honest, local restaurant to eat and kill some time. All the previous reviews were spot on. Great seafood, warm atmosphere, good service, fair pricing and true local color.

great food, great bar and super friendly personnel. This is a place where the locals go and tourists don't know about. Want lobster - get a complete meal for $25. Worth every penny. Check it out and enjoy.

I never miss hitting the AC Bar & Grille when in Atlantic City. Not on the Boardwalk, but has a nice parking lot, so easy access in AC. Their Shrimp Mary's are to die for along with just about everything on their menu. Lunch time is especially a terrific bargain. Their menu is heavy on Italian and crab. Their crab... More

We arrived at the hotel late at night and when we asked for assistance with finding a place to eat both the reservation clerk and valet said to go across the street to Atlantic City. Because it was so late we only had appetizers and drinks, but the service was attentive and the appetizers arrived very quickly, which we appreciated.

I've eaten there twice now, and both times was quite impressed with the food. it is a casual bar and restaurant. The first time, I had the shrimp and scallops over pasta, and this past week I had the chicken Parmigiana. Was very impressed with the marinara sauce that was on the chicken Parm. Just couldn't believe how delicious it... More

My friends and i always plan to have dinner here when we are in town every summer. Food and service has always been good. Soft shell crabs were done perfectly and the steak pizzola is very popular. Prices are reasonable.
