We always enjoy our trips to AC. Doc's is a must if you are a seafood lover. Service is always good and friendly. Can't wait to go back again to enjoy the fresh seafood.

I just can't say enough about this restaurant. I went to dinner solo while on a business trip in Atlantic City and, boy, did I hit the jackpot!

Found this place lived up to the excellent reviews. Seafood tasted fresh. Had an excellent lobster cocktail. Wine list was ample and reasonable. Crab cakes may be the best and freshest tasting I've ever had. prices reasonable. Cheese pie desert very good.

Always come to Dock's when in Atlantic City. This time was no different. Started off with the $33 seafood tower for 2. Cannot beat the value for what you get. Everything on it and fed 3 of us. Homemade rolls great. Red clam chowder with tons of clams on the shell excellent. Even the house salad was great. Red snapper... More

This was my first golf trip to AC and Dock's was our first restaurant. As table of 4 we had crab salad, clams casino, oysters Rockefeller as appetizer. We also split a Ribeye steak Entree as an additional appetizer because we wanted some steak but not as our main meal. The chef sliced it for us so we didn't have... More

Delish Hubby ordered fried seafood plate fish, shrimp, crab cake with house made chips. I ordered the seared scallops over mashed potatoe with sautéed spinach. Amazing! Never room for dessert tho lol
