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

If you have the opportunity to visit Dock's Oyster House I highly recommend it! This is a great place for sea food lovers. The service is top notch and the wait staff is very knowledgeable about the dishes and their preparation. They made great recommendations. There is a large appetizer menu and they have several varieties of oysters to choose... More

After reading all the great reviews we decided that we had to try Dock's. It was our celebration for the end of summer and what a great way to cap it off! Both my boyfriend and I agreed that it was the best food we have had down at the Jersey shore... EVER! We have both been vacationing down at... More

We've eaten here twice, both times awesome experience. They have these vodka bloody mary oyster shooters for an appetizer which are awesome. I get something different everytime, the red clam sauce is good and was impressed with the fish tacos, good spices and flavors. They have great bar drinks too. This place is always packed. They have live bands and... More

Our dinner at Dock's was so good that we cancelled our reservation at a different restaurant for the next night and ate at Dock's two nights in a row.

We use Tripadvisor to search out new places to eat, when traveling. JACKPOT!! Wife's crab au gratin great! My crab sautee' was stupendous! Fresh and flavorful. Drinks were moderately priced. Service was attentive and efficient. Seating is a little cramped, because they have been in this building for over 100 years. I would definitely recommend reservations (which we did not... More

My husband and I took a trip to Atlantic City and wanted to venture off the boardwalk in search of a great meal. Service was amazing and our food was delicious. We will definitely be back when we return to Atlantic City!
