I had the pecan crusted salmon...was delish. Tried oysters for the first time - perfect place to do that. Honestly can't wait to go back here and try more of their dishes. The atmosphere was welcoming, live piano music in the background, service was superb...I can't think of anything else that would make it more perfect! Went here before a... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant and the food was delicious. Everything, from the entre to desert was incredibly good, out of this world! My husband got the lobster tail and it was huge and tender. I had the jumbo shrimps on a salad and WOW, amaizing. It was a little cold in the restaurant so the waitress,... More

For entree, mrs had a huge ribeye, I had an 18 ounce lobster tail, scrumptious! The hostess , holly, and our waiter, will, helped me present a... More

My first visit to Dock's was in August of 2013, my boyfriend and I had heard about it on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. The second we walked up we knew we were in for something great. The restaurant was completely packed and everything smelled and looked delicious. We had great drinks at the bar while chatting... More

Dock's is one of the oldest and longest-running establishments in the state. The same family has run it for 5 generations. The food is outstanding and the service is first class. My wife and I love eating there. We highly recommend it to anyone who loves seafood and steaks.

This is really a first class restaurant. Though a bit pricey, the food is excellent, and the service is attentive, friendly, and skilled. I was especially pleased by the wait staff - our waitress (whose name I neglected to get) was truly outstanding. No request went unanswered - she even prepared some thousand island dressing for me (a choice which... More

By far the best meal we had in Atlantic City! The tables are very close together, but that is my only real complaint (as an older man at the next table was dropping fairly frequent f-bombs). The kaiser bun/rolls are delicious, served with tubs of whipped butter. The calamari appetizer is not overly fried. My grilled scallops were perfectly done... More

We ate at the bar because we didn't have a reservation. The oysters were really good and the oyster peeler was great. Prices were higher than most places in Atlantic city but the food was good. Service was slow so don't expect to be in and out but friendly. All around a good place to go for a romantic evening... More
