We asked the girl at the hotel we stayed at where there was a good place was to eat and where I can go casually in jeans. She recommended AC Bar and Grille. The food was great! I couldnt decide what to order because everything coming out at all the tables looked and smelled so good. We ordered apps and... More

we got to a crowded restaurant, had to wait, but the hostess was courteous, and made our wait time bearable. after several minutes, he was able to usher us in, gave us good seating, and enjoyed the food at this restaurant. would recommend this place for their pasta dishes as well as their seafood.

Going to keep this short and sweet. Ordered the crab pie and buffalo tenders; crab pie tasted like Elio's pizza with bumble bee canned crab on top, buffalo tenders were fresh out of the microwave frozen tenders drenched in hot sauce. I couldn't get 1/3 of the way through either. At least the service was decent.

We walked to the Atlantic City Bar and Grill from our hotel, about 5 blocks away. The restaurant is not very big, and the tables were close, but that was not a problem. The friendly server gave detailed information about menu items and helped us make choices. We had the crab-stuffed flounder. Terrific! The baked potato was sprinkled with Old... More

She had the soft shell crab which was good and I the linguine with home made sauce and two large meatballs.... More

Atlantic City Bar and Grill is off of the boardwalk, but within easy walking distance of many hotels. Because it was close, we visited a couple of times. The first time, I ordered a seafood pizza and it was terrible. However, I also had the lobster bisque soup and it was fantastic. My husband ordered a whole lobster and had... More

This restaurant is across the street from our hotel. It's still a friendly family restaurant/bar with good service. Compared to our visit in 2012, the food is good, but not quite at the top level we experienced then. Still, my husband had a very good steak and potato with soggy broccoli. My linguini with clams was good, not great. The... More

We chose this restaurant because we were going to a show at the Borgata and couldn't get reservations for one of those restaurants early enough before the show. It was great. My husband got a huge whole lobster, for $25, I got the snow crabs for $19. There were about 4-5 clusters! Staff was friendly, restaurant was clean, restrooms were... More

You wouldn't believe how bad the area is. However, staying right across the street, it was convenient to eat at each night. I feel badly for this place, because the employees and establishment deserve to be in a better area. Pros -Food is good. Not sure where you can get that quality without going into one of the casino's higher... More
