The attitude of the staff always seems to be very poor since the Matriarch of this family owned and operated business passed away. The prices are on the high side, there is little room for seating in the main dining room and even less room at the bar. BUT and it is a VERY BIG BUT, the food is exceptional... More

Excellent seafood, fresh with superior service. A wonderful dinning experience, one of the best Atlantic City can offer. We visit Dock's every time in AC, the staff remembers us each time, the food and drinks are fabulous!

My family loves seafood and from the reviews we had read, this restaurant promised to be all that we would want in a classic fine dining seafood restaurant, steeped in history. A change from the trendy restaurants of Iron and Top Chefs in the Casinos. As we walked into the restaurant, it was perfectly decorated for a high end seafood... More

My husband and I walked 11 blocks to find this classic seafood restaurant, highly recommended by our hotel staff on Atlantic Ave., one block behind the old convention center. We started with a sampler of raw oysters, chosen by our server, which were absolutely delicious. I enjoyed a terrific entree of sauteed soft-shell crab, black bean salsa and asparagus, offering...

This place is absolutely my favorite seafood I have ever had. While visiting Atlantic City on business the last thing I expected was to find a new favorite restaurant. My company and I ate here together at least twice during the week we were here and my boss and I came several other times on our own. Everything we ordered... More

Finally decided to venture out of the Casino's and try to eat at a local joint. What a great surprise Dock's is. An easy walk or cheap cab ride gets you there. The place is small and cozy. The oysters were great as was my rare tuna. My dining companions raved about their dishes too, Salmon, fluke, and sauteed crab.... More

Food was great...server paid more attention to himself in the mirror and tables for 2 super close to others. I don't want to hear their conversation nor do I think they wanted to hear ours.
