I'm a New Englander native living in Los Angeles. Whenever I visit the east coast I'm always looking for good seafood, so of which cannot be purchased on the west coast. Flounder is what I miss the most. I just ate one of the best meals I've ever eaten at Dock's Restaurant in Atlantic City. I had flounder stuffed with... More

The service was terrible, the salad was a joke, it was terrible. The bread was as hard as a brick. The main courses to the 9 of us was served at different times. What was to be done well was not even close. I would rather eat at Wendy's and save the super expensive cost of the 8 people.

A bustling place with great food and imaginative drinks. Want a romantic dinner? not here. It fills many niches not that one. Tables are close together waits can be long. Not a detraction for me more of an attraction. Its fun, wait staff friendly slightly overwhelmed but cheerful and helpful. The food second to none in the area. As with... More

This place is a must try if you're ever in the area. You can cab it from the casinos for about 15 bucks or so. I loved the ambiance as soon as we walked in--piano player and the raw bar (meticulously clean), and a friendly hostess greeted us at the door. We had reservations, and I would definitely recommend that... More

The food here is very good. The problem is that it is overcrowded and reservations mean little. Bad enough that you have to wait well beyond the reservation time but making it worse, the space available for waiting is limited and cramped. Our meals here have been good but not relaxing. If I ever go back it will be at... More

Dock's has been an Atlantic City favorite for many, many years. The prices are high, but like they say, you get what you pay for. The food is absolutely delicious and the servers are attentive to your every need. The tables are close to each other and there isn't much privacy, but once you taste your meal, it doesn't matter....

Even though it was a Saturday night, we had 7:15 reservations and we were seated at 7:17 - can't ask for better timing. Our waiter explained in details the special if the day. Gave us time to think of what we wanted to order. Our meal was served in a timely fashion, from our appetizer which consisted of a oyster... More

This was our second visit to Dock's and it was as wonderful as the first visit. Both the oysters parmigiana and the oysters from the raw bar were delicious. My apple martini was great too! Service was excellent and we were checked on regularly without it being intrusive.
