This restaurant has a great piano bar and really good food, but it is by no means inexpensive. Most entrees are a little steep in price, but the food is really, really good. I have eaten there several times and everything I ordered was delicious. The Maine clam chowder is very good as are the scallops. I would suggest ordering seafood at this restaurant; however, I would bet that anything you order would be fabulous.

We are never disappointed. Last night the restaurant was energized, no empty seats. 4 of us, 3 had the oyster app, they all loved it, I had the chowder which I have every time, so I guess it's delicious, dah! 3 people had the scallops which I tasted, they were delicious. But the best part was my filet. It was cooked perfect medium. It was amazing, through flavor, wow, texture so tender and the portion enough for me to fill up and everyone to taste. We love it there!!!❤

Yummy food - great service. Top shelf all the way. 5 lb. lobster imperial for ~$100 - steamed or broiled - oysters at 2 bucks each - can't remember what the wife had but she ended up licking her plate.

A must visit if you're in AC !!!

Docks is an AC Landmark - Best Restaurant! I have often reserved a room in a nearby Casino in order to just dine at Docks! No gambling involved... only to have a fabulous dinner and experience at Dock's. I have been a faithful diner at Docks since the 90's when they had a piano player who played Meatloaf and Pink Floyd songs. Excellent food and personal service! I look forward to dining there again soon - and highly recommend!
