Fresh seafood and prompt efficient service. This is our favorite restaurant in Atlantic city. The seafood tower is great the split for the table. Never disappointing.

We were in Atlantic City for a few days and had dinner at Dock's Oyster House. It's a very old restaurant - historic - with wonderful food and service. The menu is very interesting, and of course, the oysters are great. The ambience is upscale and dignified, but the menu is very fresh and interesting. We enjoyed our dinner very... More

Love the raw oyster bar. Linguini with clam sauce is flavorful. Price is comparable to other places in area. Key clue for me to the freshness of the seafood, no fish smell.

I took my husband to Docks for his birthday. Helen, a long-standing employee was our server. She was amazing! Her timing was impeccable, she was so friendly and made our visit very enjoyable. The food was great and the atmosphere comfortable. We visit AC a few times per year and now find ourselves working out time to include a stop... More

Went to Dock's to celebrate my sister's 28th birthday. We all had a drink at the bar and the bartender poured three healthy bourbons and my mother's vodka gimlet was the best she ever tasted. The bartender was friendly and attentive. I wish we knew his name so I could give him a shout out. We were seated a few... More

A bit pricey but the Seafood tower, lobster bisque, steak, seafood with pasta...all excellent. You get what you pay for!!! But a bit noisy. But that's OK with us. Got crowded fast. Parking lot next door but it's valet.

The food at Dock's is delicious!! The crab soup is the best. Chef Stephan came to our table to describe the food, and chit chat for a minute. He is hilarious!!!

My husband and I came here for a night out together, and everything was phenomenal. Service was phenomenal, atmosphere was classy, and the food is out of that world. I had the clam chowder before the meal, and it was the best I've ever had-- fresh clams and made to order. For the entree I ordered Crab Cakes, and they... More

We were seated right on time according to our reservation and the waiter immediately approached us. The specials and highlights of the regular menu were promptly given to us and we ordered drinks. My wife had a glass of wine which she really enjoyed. There were several people eating the lobster($30,) per pound. This is definitely a great place to... More
