Truly - time stands still for quality!

This place, for me is really a time gone by. When the drinks were large and the servers were friendly and knew your drink before you sat down. Best seafood and overall food in the area! Don't miss the Banana Cream Pie !

Although I have been to Atlantic City many times, I hadn't heard about Dock's until recently and so we decided to try it. I am so glad we ventured outside of the casino to Dock's. It is conveniently located on Atlantic Ave near Caesar's, The service was excellent and the food was superb. The cold food was cold, the hot... More

We visited Docks Oyster House in August 2014 during a 3 night stay in the now ill-fated Revel. It was our first time to Atlantic City, and we weren't entirely sure what to expect. Given what the city has become, it was a surprise that in a place surrounded by cheap thrills and hedonism, Docks Oyster House is a place... More

Food was great, make a reservation first. My wife and I walked in at 8:30 and was seated at 9:20. Our waiter RJ was great.

We have been to Dock's for dinner many times. I would highly recommend making reservations (they are on open table). If you like a good martini, they make the best. They have a wonderful raw bar with all sorts of fresh seafood options available. The seafood tower as well as the soft-shell crab entree are spectacular.

We looked forward to dining here after friends raved about Docs and reservations were made 3 weeks in advance. We decided to arrive earlier than our 6:45pm reservation to sit and enjoy a cocktail before dining - big mistake not checking the concert schedule at Boardwalk Hall prior to making these reservations - arrived at a packed bar area (some...

Disclaimer: I know the owners. We were there recently for a big family dinner. The food was OK -- not outstanding -- with excellent service. However, the whole "feel" was of faded glory... an old-style menu that had not been updated, etc.... with prices suited for the old glory not the current status. Still a good place, but a little...

Family owned for 100+ years it is charming, and reliably wonderful seafood. Raw bar is excellent. It feels crowded - like a NYC restaurant, but we were there on a summer Friday night. A little risky to walk to from the casino hotels - take a cab.
