Docks Oyster Bar was one of the most enjoyable meals I have had in AC. Great place off the hotel strips, huge oyster selection. Sea food was fresh and very well prepared. Although the prices are a bit high the quality of the meal and especially the size of the portions well makes up for it I had the Red... More

I've been going to AC for years, and never heard of Dock's until I looked on Yelp. I am so glad I found it. It is a really old-school seafood restaurant. It was packed on a Tuesday night, but thankfully, we had reservations. It is not very large, and the tables do feel a little cramped. The menu is pretty... More

Everything was EXCELLENT... We came here for my husband's birthday and we don't have a single complaint. Food was Great! Our server Will, was awesome. The only thing that was upsetting was not being able to finish my food... Lol will definitely come back and I highly recommend both Will and Dock's Oyster House.

When my family all visited Atlantic City on an important family vacation I made a reservation on Open Table for Docks Oyster House. We have been going to AC since the 1950s and Docks I think is the best restaurant in town. We went on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. Had to wait for our table but... More

Four of us went to Dock's on a Friday Aug. 7, 2015. We made a reservation for 5:30 and were seated within five minutes. We all had a cocktail before dinner at our table. We ordered and had a nice meal. After dinner the waiter asked if we would like another drink so we all did so. Then he also... More

We've been to Atlantic City countless times, but this was our first time dining at Doc's. The atmosphere is perfect, a certain old world charm just hits you as soon as you enter the front door. The bartenders are personable and really know their craft. We ordered a special for the appetizer; jersey tomato fried with a creamy cheese and... More

So impressed! The overall experience was great. We arrived a bit early and sat at the bar before our reservation time. The bar tender was very friendly and had some great drink recommendations! I wish I could remember his name! Anyways, we sat down for our meal around 6pm, the restaurant was packed from that point on, so it seems... More

The food was great. We were first seated and there were oyster crackers with horseradish sauce that was great. The rolls were a bit hard but just ask for new ones. I ordered wine which was perfect and a seafood meal with cream and potatoes it was so good. I will absolutely return! I did not like the neighborhood. Valet... More

Easily one of the best restaurants in AC & the best oyster/clam shucker in the area. I go there for seafood & the raw bar & great cocktails made by Demetri. The food is old guard Jersey shore but made well. When you make food well it doesn't matter the style, people will eat.
