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++++

I loved the atmosphere! Eating elbow to elbow with others in an upbeat restaurant was really cool. Not like dining at home where the tables are farther apart. And the food? Just outstanding! Went there on a Monday night and it was crowded. Didn't have reservations but it only took about 20 minutes to get a table. Loved the special... More

The food was amazing and the restaurant has a natural, busy ambience unlike the big casino restaurants that feel a little overdone. Warning .... the king crab leg portions are ridiculous. My wife and I couldn't even finish them together. The only reason they aren't getting a perfect rating is the service was a little off. They relocated my wife... More

We went to Dock's on 9/11/14. The food we ordered was excellent. the appetizer's, And main course was awesome! We still are talking about the Puffed wedges that were so light and airy. Matched perfectly with the steak and fish entrees. We cannot figure out how they are made... I have had nothing like them... Oysters were so fresh and... More

The thought of having dinner at a renown restaurant in AC had great appeal, especially with a craving for good seafood. While the building is quaint....the service and food ain't. Totally ignored when we arrived, we seated ourselves in front of the raw bar. We waited 15 minutes for cocktail service, and waited much longer for a table, even though... More
