The ambiance is great. I have dinned outside and inside, and both have areas have a good feel to it. I usually get some kind of fish or crab cakes, and both have been very good. The homemade chips are tasty with an added spiciness. It is a much better alternative to the Crab Shack's high prices and long waits.

Great food, great atmosphere, seafood and chowder are great. We had a great time. The steak and scallops were great and the crabmeat au gratin is killer.. Raw oysters with spicy cocktail sauce. Everything is great.

If you want a family owned local restaurant with consistently great seafood, go to Dock's!!! It has been an A.C. tradition for years, with good reason.

What a surprise, excellent place, great seafood, awesome experience overall. This place is visibly overbooked and tightly packed but judging by the quality of this place I imagine they get a lot of repeat business and everyone wants a table. Our wait was about an hour, but since we had drinks by the bar we did not mind -- by the way, bartenders are excellent and very attentive. Thanks.
Anyone who visits AC should certainly step outside of their hotel and visit this restaurant.
Fresh seafood, great atmosphere, I will certainly come back.
