Always a delight

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!

For anyone calling to make a reservation-- word of advance make sure they actually... More

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

Me and my boyfriend went for restaurant week and the food was amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly. The bartender was friendly and efficient. Our server wasn't that great but we still enjoyed our time there!

Before the casino era in Atlantic City, there were a few famous restaurants which still stand out and exceed anything you can find in a casino. For seafood, it's Dock's. Set in a decidedly upscale pub type atmosphere, Dock's is the place in AC for the best, freshest seafood you can find. The same family has run the place for... More

We have been traveling to AC for many years and never knew about Docks until we searched tripadvisor during our last visit. Overall a great dining experience! Everything from the raw bar to the cocktails, fresh seafood dinners and desert were all exceptional and the service was perfect which added to the experience. The fried oysters were the best ever!...

Not bad isn't necessarily a great way to start a review but I felt this place was not bad. I'd even say good. The food was mostly good. I had a crab and asparagus soup, the snapper, and baily's mousse for dessert. The soup was decent but should have been a little thicker/heartier. The asparagus overpowered the crab a little... More

Second trip in three months for a meal as it was a birthday dinner. So upon entering, the lady I was with wanted to sit at the bar because of the pianist. We were told by the hostess that we could order only one meal at the bar. Fine, well order one, then an app. We ordered our cocktails and... More
