Fine Dining With a Twist!

Lively and friendly atmosphere surrounding excellent options for food and drink. Gotta start with some freshly shucked oysters. I had a blue rare filet, which was cooked to perfection and was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My wife had the seafood fry, which was higlighted by the crab cake. A bit... read more

Loved everything about our evening at Dock's. The atmosphere, food, service, location was perfect for us. And the Atlantic City history made it even better. A great place to have a memorable meal.

This is an old tradition in Atlantic City but very over rated and over priced.....Don't waste your time waiting for a table or your money.

This was a bit of a splurge for us, who were just in A.C. for the weekend, but it was a very delicious, memorable meal. We had first of all great service from a friendly, knowledgeable waiter, the ambience was perfect (w/ an excellent pianist who played beautifully, but not too loudly so as to impede conversation). Drinks were good,... More

Third time here after reading TripAdvisor reviews and seeing a few TV shows on great eating spots. This does not disappoint in any way. The food is excellent, and the scallops are just delicious! If you like Calamari, this is the place to get it. If you like dessert, the homemade Cheese Pie is not to be missed. Cannot say... More

Crowded and loud, not for an intimate dinner. We eat here everytime we come to Atlantic City. Expensive. Food is good, some items are great.

This is a regular stop for us while in Atlantic City. Terrific food every time. Make sure that you get reservations early as it is a small venue and books early. Only minor issue is that seating is tight.

Made our Thursday night reservation a few days in advance. Got there a 15 minutes early and were lucky enough to grab two seats at the bar, which is a bit small. Our table was ready at our reserved time. At the bar, I had a house martini, Asian pear. Delish. I did notice the bartender spent quite a bit... More

Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Every part of this meal was done to perfection. Helen supplied a surprise "birthday" desert. We always enjoy coming here.
