Dock's Never Disappoints!

Had a fantastic meal for Restaurant Week in Atlantic City! My appetizer was a creamy & delicious bowl of Crab & Asparagus Soup. It had large chunks of sweet crabmeat & pieces of asparagus. The flavor was amazing!! My entree was the Pecan Crusted Salmon. It came with a baked potato & sat on a bed of... read more

We booked our reservation in advance knowing we would try restaurant week. It was a hit. I picked Monday because we really appreciate the musician on the piano.He is so awesome. We were a little early on purpose so we could enjoy a drink and music. The hostess was really accommodating took our coats and brought us to our table... More

This is Atlantic City dining at its best. From the moment you walk in, you are made to feel welcome. The staff is so friendly. The mixologists (can’t even call them bartenders) are creative and well informed. We were given excellent advice for pairings of spirits with different kinds of oysters (where else are you going to get that?) They... More

The food here is absolutely fabulous. My all time favorite are the Soft Shell Crabs. They are the best I have ever eaten! Whenever I had visitors I being them here. The dining area is small so do make a reservation. The bar area is also small, and can get crowded I'm the weekends especially during the summer. I prefer... More

Not only is Dock's one of finer stand alone restaurants in AC the owners also own the famous Knife & Fork. You can not go wrong with either place I've eaten at both a number of time and have always been totally pleased.

We have been to Docks Oyster House three times and try to eat there when we go to AC. It is Old AC atmosphere, don't expect modern, but very nice. The service and the fish is outstanding and prepared deliciously. They take reservations and are seated immediately. Don't hesitate to try Docks. The only drawback I can think of is... More

It is with great regret that I must write this with several negative points. Docks used to be the a great fine dining experience in AC. Unfortunately, the tides have turned. Well overpriced for the quality/quantity served. Great service but the atmosphere needs a pickup as it is a bit outdated. It was a cold Thursday night in AC, and... More

We go to Dock's Oyster House several times a year over the past 20 years and have never been sorry. Nothing is better than sitting at the bar and listening t the piano player, sipping martinis and eating oysters. If you feel like getting out of the casino take the time to try Docks and you won't be disappointed.

Seated 20 mins after a 830 reservation. The hostess seated my party of 2 about 6 inches away from a party of 8. The service was good but once again my two top was lost among the bigger tables who receive the lion's share of the service. The food was good

What a great experience for a business dinner. The staff is excellent and the food is wonderful. You are treated so special from the minute you walk in the door right up to the banana cream pie.
