Went to Dock's on a Monday night in September. We made reservations so there was no wait. Food was great and service was friendly and quick. Would definitely go back again!

Food was very tasty presentation was nice as well. The place is very small for the price they charge for food they don't need to put so many tables in there and make it uncomfortable you might as well have dinner with a bunch of people you don't know so don't take your loved one for a special dinner here.

They were right about the banana crime pie, over the top. Entrees were okay. Had to send one back because it was way too salty. Replacement was much better. Service was attentive but yet not classy. For these priced you expect better service. Wine list was adequate and beers were interesting. Very noisy. Overall a decent experience, but expected better.

This is our second trip to Dock's. We found it last year and while visiting AC this year, we had to go back. Amy was our waitress both times. Amy is wonderful. Oyster stew, raw oysters, broiled seafood platter and friend shrimp were all excellent. All I can say is Dock's rocks!!

We have been coming here for a few years now. Every six months for conventions, ALWAYS plan a dinner here. We enjoy the lady playing the piano at the bar and have our own routine when we come.

I would like to give this restaurant a fabulous review because of the food and ambiance but the experience you go through before getting seated makes it difficult. On each visit, arriving a few minutes before our reserved time, we have been told our table would be ready in a few minutes which always turned into 45 minutes spent standing... More

Docks never disappoints! Great food, great service! If you are in A.C. I highly recommend this place. We took friends visiting from England here and they agreed it was the best meal.

We went to Dock's on a Monday night. It was full. We did get a good table and great waiter (Taz)! The corn and crab chowder was excellent. We had lobster tails that were great! Cold water tails are hard to find!

Waited at the piano bar for 45 minutes and after my experience I would do it again! Hands down my best Atlantic City restaurant experience. Fresh raw bar, and amazing entrees. Been coming to AC for years and never been here before. Hands down my new favorite place to visit! A++++
