Amazing food

Me and my boyfriend went for restaurant week and the food was amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly. The bartender was friendly and efficient. Our server wasn't that great but we still enjoyed our time there!

Before the casino era in Atlantic City, there were a few famous restaurants which still stand out and exceed anything you can find in a casino. For seafood, it's Dock's. Set in a decidedly upscale pub type atmosphere, Dock's is the place in AC for the best, freshest seafood you can find. The same family has run the place for... More

We have been traveling to AC for many years and never knew about Docks until we searched tripadvisor during our last visit. Overall a great dining experience! Everything from the raw bar to the cocktails, fresh seafood dinners and desert were all exceptional and the service was perfect which added to the experience. The fried oysters were the best ever!...

Not bad isn't necessarily a great way to start a review but I felt this place was not bad. I'd even say good. The food was mostly good. I had a crab and asparagus soup, the snapper, and baily's mousse for dessert. The soup was decent but should have been a little thicker/heartier. The asparagus overpowered the crab a little... More

Second trip in three months for a meal as it was a birthday dinner. So upon entering, the lady I was with wanted to sit at the bar because of the pianist. We were told by the hostess that we could order only one meal at the bar. Fine, well order one, then an app. We ordered our cocktails and... More

Local Favorite Forever. Consistantly excellent food. Always fresh. Friendly staff. Go a little early or late. Can be very busy. Bar apps are good especially if you like oysters. Always a good time. Not in the casinos, a few blocks away on Atlantic Avenue. If you are staying in the casino take a short cab ride. Not a bad area... More

Excellent food. Someone treated us so I don't know about pricing but it sure was delicious food. Everyone had different food and everyone raved about it.

As an Atlantic city local, my husband and I always take family and friends to Docks, our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately this last visit was less than enthusiastic. We were rushed through dinner, not even able to finish our cocktail.The server and his fellow servers, looked very stressed and were all trying their best to bring out the meals as quickly... More

The concierge at The Borgata made reservations for us at Dock's for 815pm. We arrived exactly on time and were immediately guided to a table. The room was well lit, striking with dark wood; offset by white tablecloths with white cloth napkins. A very inviting/ warm atmosphere! The waiter arrived quickly and we ordered a bottle of Frog's Leap Sauvignon... More
