Celebrated my mom's 80th birthday with 15 people. Food was delicious. We've been going to Dock's for over 30 years, and the food is always great. Staff is very attentive.

Everything is top notch, the food, the service, the atmosphere. They are currently putting on an addition as well. The restaurant has old world charm reminiscent of the Rat Pack days of Sinatra with heavy wooden furnishings and a jazzy feel. Consistently voted one of the best restaurants in AC for good reason. You won't be disappointed.

This is the place for fine dining. The seafood is impeccable. The specials are seasonal. When they have king crab, it is fresh caught and never frozen. The wait staff has been there forever and truly professional

Though we live in the area, this was - unbelievably to us - our first visit to Dock's. Oh, we had tried before, but our nights out tend to be spontaneous ... and one typically needs a reservation for dinner here. Indeed, the place was packed - delightfully so - on our maiden visit. From the service by employees who... More

Dock's has been one of my go to places since I started spending time in Ventnor during the summers. My husband loves lobster and seafood in general so it is always one of his choices. When you walk in you can sense that the diners have been there many times before People dress a little more to dine here so... More

Lobster lobster lobster... Then again any type of fish. Their crab Caesar salad is a great meal in itself. The potato souffle .... Their version of french fries are delectable. You will not be disappointed.

Lifetime SJ residents but we never tried Dock's. Glad that we were able to make it in before they are closed for a 6 month remodel. The combination Oyster platter was excellent as was the Flounder special. Especially loved the piano built into the bar, very talented musician. I hope that they don't change that detail. Our server has been... More

Dock's is one of my favorite places, but a reservation is always required. The restaurant is alittle cramped but the food is fabulous. Oysters, clams, lobster, soups, salads, everything is fresh and delicious. It is my understanding this restaurant will be closed for renovations sometime soon, so please call before you attempt to go there.

This was a great seafood spot where you'd least expect to find it (tucked between Vietnamese restaurants just off the main blocks of Atlantic City). The food was good, we tried a filet and crab cakes - the filet was cooked perfectly with a great flavor and the crab cakes were good. We were a little disappointed because when we... More
