Knife & Fork Inn
I remember the Knife & ForkI remember the Knife & Fork when I was a child, coming here with my parents. It is as good as ever...even better.
Highly recommend the Lobster Thermador.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best!As always, the Knife & Fork is AC's best. It's a great experience-- the service is on point and even fellow diners are friendly and add to the atmosphere. The portions are generous, but be sure to save room for desert.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMForget the casino restaurantsIt's worth a trip to The K&F Inn for a fantastic meal with impeccable service. Don't miss the Parmesan crusted Brussels sprouts with horseradish sauce. I am still savoring the taste! The steak was juicy and succulent and you could cut it with a butter knife. And who wouldn't want to have a meal in a place with over 100 years of AC history? Just go. You'll thank me.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!This was our 1st time dining at the Knife &Fork Inn in Atlantic City, NJ and I certainly hope it won't be the last. Service was excellent, and our meals were perfection! It's not inexpensive, but certainly is a better value than the casino restaurants and hands-down offers more charm, service, and outstanding food selections. My husband and I go out to dinner nearly every Saturday night, and I can honestly say this was the best meal that I've had in a restaurant in YEARS. One of the best ever!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite placeMy husband and I love going to the Knife and Fork when we are down in our home in Brigantine. We always know we are going to get a great meal!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but worth it.Ambiance is great. Menu correctly structured. Service wonderful. Wine choices by the glass good.
Worthy of another visit. Expensive date.
Only negative- have to climb stairs to second level . Not sure if there is an elevator.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceFirst time there so we didn't know what to expect. Food and portion size were excellent, we already recommended it to our neighbors.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful dinnerThis was our fourth dinner at the K & F, and all four have been a delightful experience. The food is top notch; cooked just right with ample portions. The wait staff is courteous and professional. The dining room downstairs is cozy yet nicely spaced. The K&F will always be our restaurant of choice for special occasions.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDecided it was time to tryDecided it was time to try the Knife and Fork? Went there on an early Sunday evening, so it wasn't bustling with activity. The building and the interior does have a lot of character. The bartender started us off with a pleasant manner. We found the food, halibut, to be excellent. It actually exceeded our expectations. The only quibble we had was with the wine list. I suggest a few more bottles in the 40-50 range. The bottle we had was fair. All in all, a very good occasion. Let's not price yourselves out of consideration, however.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Place!A big hats off to all the staff! Jennifer the Barmaid and our waiter Murph! We had an excellent time and the food was fantastic! Be back again the next time in town! Staple!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded my expectationsI'd heard that the Knife and Fork was a good restaurant, but It's much better than good, it's great. I'd suggest that you order the brussel sprouts even if you're not a fan of brussel sprouts, and I want to thank our waitress for suggesting them. The restaraunt is beautiful, and perfect for a special occasion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSome Boardwalk history with SteakAn historic beauty with impeccable service, a great menu, and very good execution of same. I believe the Commodore would've been proud.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food and old-time atmoshereWe had early dinner reservations at 5PM. We were alone in one of the rooms for half of our dinner. The service was great, a wonderful wine list and the food was fantastic. I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. My firend had a fish dish which was great. Both came with asparagus and we ordered herb roasted potatoes. Meat, fish potatoes and veggies were the best. I would recommend this restaurant and I'm planning to go again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderfuloverall it was a wonderful dining experience... I would urge you to try this restaurant...5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a gem!Found this restauant driving into AC. Building is on a corner and beautiful with valet parking in back. Feels like the kind of place Sinatra would have held strategy meetings with a beautiful bar, tin ceiling, and historic photos of AC on the walls. My party had no issues with the noise level. All of us had a great meal. Between the five of us we had the calamari appetizer (light and fresh), wonderful steaks, delicious rack of lamb, and the scallop special with risotto that was to die for. Also had sides of spinach, au gratin potatos, and the beet chips, which are a delightful surprise. Dessert menu was a dissapointment, nothing unique: cheesecake, lava cake, creme brule. Desserts were good, but did not wow us like the entrees did.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, highly recommendNice place. Food was excellent and service were very good. Seems to cater to older clientele as most people there were 50+. The portion sizes were enormous. I had a 12 oz filet mignon and I have to say it was the largest filet I had ever seen and thickest. Ordered sides of mushrooms and potatoes and those were quite large. They were enough for 3 people. I had leftovers of everything including the steak and it was great the next day. They even brought a chocolate dessert out as they heard it was my girlfriend's birthday. There was definitely some confusion there as her birthday was a month prior but we didn't let it go to waste. It was really excellent. We would definitely come back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat!!!An excellent meal and the wait staff were great! Wife and I visited for dinner one evening and had a great meal. Both meals were well cooked and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had what we wanted.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food great ambianceAwesome food great ambiance historic restaurant would recommend this place to anyone4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAll I Can Say is WOWAll I can say is WOW. We were hesitant to give up going to Dock's Oyster House but decided to try Knife & Fork. We had a fantastic meal. They had an excellent selection of beers. The perfectly cooked scallops and a soft-shell crab started the meal. I followed with the Cowgirl Ribeye which was one of the most delicious steaks (cooked properly) I have ever had topped with loads (and I do mean loads) of crab salad. My husband had the flounder which he raved about. Our side dishes were scalloped potatoes that were full of flavor and perfectly steamed spinach. We ended by sharing a yummy creme brulee topped with fresh berries and good coffee. We will definitely be returning. Service was attentive without being intrusive.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I dine outMy husband and I dine out frequently and were very happy with the service, food and charm of the restaurant. Todd, our server, was very knowledgable about the menu and made outstanding recommendations.
My husband had the octopus salad and I had the tomato / mozzarella cheese to start. Both were very good. For the main course we both had steak - cowboy ribeye (blue cheese bechamel) and filet (au poivre) with a size of the lobster risotto. The blue cheese was excellent, the au poivre was just ok - not what we expected. The lobster risotto had large pieces of lobster which was wonderful, however the risotto sauce was 'odd'. It was cheesey, almost velvetta like.
Overall, our experience there was very good and highly recommend it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAtlantic City ClassicLooking for a classic meal in Atlantic City - delightful ambiance, delicious food and friendly and professional staff? The Knife & Fork is the place for you. This timeless (built in 1912) landmark at the corner of Atlantic and Pacific Avenues contains a gem of a restaurant, which is our "go to" place when my wife and I have to spend the night in Atlantic City. Unaffiliated with any casino, devoid of trashy casino patrons, the K&F exudes charm. But charm only gets you so far, and the dining here is first rate. We're partial to the yellow beet & goat cheese salad, but there are many options, and both seafood and steaks are equally featured and equally good. Top quality products, perfectly prepared. Don't miss the Knife & Fork!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI am grateful to the DoughertyI am grateful to the Dougherty Family has had the faith to invest in keeping this Old AC gem still a wonderful place to go!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBeef and Reef was excellent,Beef and Reef was excellent, cooked to perfection.

Plan to become a regular - great food and reasonable prices4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI would HIGHLY recommend going!!!I was there this past weekend on Saturday for my best friends bachelorette party. I did alot of searching to find the perfect restaurant for this special occasion. I decided on the Knife and Fork Inn and made reservations for 10 people. We showed up and they were ready right away for us. We had our own private room upstairs and our server ( I forget his name) was fantastic!! He knew the answer to every question we had, joked with us and was completely on point. The food was AMAZING!!! Everyone in our party enjoyed everything they got. The tomato and buffalo mozz app was simple but incredible!! I decided on the 8oz Filet Mignon. It was cooked to perfection! It melted in my mouth!! Thank you for the fantastic food and amazing time!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place to have dinnerCalamari appetizer was very good. The Chilean Sea Bass was disappointing.

My husband had the sirloin and I ordered the filet. They were both cooked perfectly as we asked. We shared the carrots, goat cheese au gratin potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. The gratin is a winner and I could have eaten it all myself!!
The one miss was the cheese plate -3 cheeses. There were too many brad items and dried fruit and grapes and 3 tiny pieces of cheese. This is a cheese plate and the cheese should be featured. I would not order again.
The service is always very good and I would visit again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a terrific meal, duckWe had a terrific meal, duck confit, octopus salad, flounder w/lump crabmeat, potato crusted seabass, and beer battered string beans.

Absolute wonderful, quaint place.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMwe always have a great timewe always have a great time there! food is great also !!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA big problemOur Overall Experience was damaged by the fact that in spite of the fact that I made my "AC Restaurant Week" reservation through OpenTable.com for the last day of the event: Saturday March 9, I was contacted by the Knife & Fork Inn the day before our reservation both to confirm our res and to inform us that K&F would not be honoring the Restaurant Week program on Saturday 3/9!!!
We had already committed to treating another couple to dinner to celebrate her
birthday, so we had no choice but to follow through with the plans! While our non-monetary experience was outstanding, I dropped about $400.00 at the K&F that night and I'm not very happy about it!
What is OpenTable willing to do to restore my faith in your organization?3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Place to eat not in CasinoAmazing food! Great service. I could eat there every night. I've had the Filet Oscar on numerous occasions and it's always perfect.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a classic Old AtlanticThis is a classic Old Atlantic City institution. Yes, there was an AC before casinos. History abounds throughout this three story gem. The warmth of the third floor wine room - dining room is worth the climb up the steps. This was our last stop on our Atlantic City Restaurant Week trip and well worth waiting for. A historic landmark and well-executed culinary skills combine for a truly historic, memorable meal.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night.

Leave the Casinos and have a great time.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
