Been coming to Dock's for over 20yrs. We LOVE it. We always get the hot app combo 2 each of oyster rockafeller, clam casino and bbq clams. 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

Had a business dinner here on 4/27. The mael was one of the best I've had in AC. Better then Palm, Ruth Chris ETAL. Our waiteress said she had worked there for 26 years. She must really like her job. The service was very good and the food spoke for itself. I will be back.

The food here is AHmazing!!! Went here while my husband was in town on business. Our meals were the second best we've ever had at a restaurant! (The only better meal was at Emeril's restaurant in Florida). Our meals were beyond delicious!! We didn't know you should make reservations here but luckily the accommodating hostess fit us in. We didn't... More

I have eaten here three times in the last year and I have never been disappointed. Great service. Awesome food. And much better pricing than eating at the hotels. I highly recommend.

It's so close that there's no need to eat mediocre overpriced food at the casinos. Showed up early to have a Manhattan while we waited and enjoyed the photos and the history lesson on the walls. Great service from the bartender and waiter. I asked if the crab cake entree was too big to be a shared appetizer and the... More

We ate here last Friday evening and had an excellent meal. The food is terrific and it is reasonable considering the quality and the taste of the food.

Love this restaurant and I make it a first choice for dinner during my stay in Atlantic City. The staffing is always attentive and the food is wonderful. I recommend giving it a try and i think you will be returning again and again!

I had made reservations the preceding day and the restaurant called to confirm on Monday. My wife and I arrived and were promptly seated at a nice table. There is a pianist who supplied a nice musical background. The style of the restaurant is "old school". That is a description of a great food, good prices, and great service restaurant... More
