Dock's Oyster House
Easter dinner at Docks was very good as usual. Food is always top notch! Service does vary unfortunately. Waited a considerable time just to get a drink order in. And was just as tough to get additional drinks. Wasn’t all that crazy busy either. Steamed Clams and Fried Calamari for apps were delicious! Seafood Special with Scallops, Shrimp, and Crab over risotto was outstanding. Pan Seared Scallops were great. And the Flounder with Asparagus is always a great choice. Always highly recommend this location if in Atlantic City.
Always a great dining experience. Food was excellent and service is great
Consistently good food. The oysters are fresh and they offer a great variety. Piano bar is lovely and adds to the ambiance. Good wines, drinks, food....what more could you ask for? Oh...and desserts are wonderful also!
Went there for Easter dinner. I highly recommend the Tuna which was outstanding. The only drawback was the wait for service because the restaurant was fully committed. The food was really cooked perfectly and served hot. Thank you Doc's. We will be back!!
The food is consistently good. Was concerned about dining there for Easter, but it was very nice. Service is always good and the oysters are fresh! Highly recommend.
Dock's Oyster House is one of my favorite restaurants ever! The service is professional and the appetizers to desserts are absolutely excellent. The only issue I ever have is deciding what I want to order! We eat here every time we go to Atlantic City for a show. There is free valet parking and it is minutes away from any casino. The interior is nicely decorated; the restrooms are well-maintained; and there is also a piano bar that looks very inviting. I highly recommend getting a reervation ahead of time.
Food was spectacular from beginning to end. A little loud but that was the only downside. Service was also great.
Everything was great !!
Great food and wonderful service! We decided to walk over from the boardwalk, not far away, and glad we did. I would suggest making a reservation, as we did, and they were right on time; those without a reservation had a long wait.
Excellent food and service.
Seafood was outstanding as was the service! Piano bar was a bit loud with kids & adults singing
Excellent food. Server was very attentive. Loved the experience.
Wife’s Birthday, her first time in AC.
No what it used to be. The menu had fewer offerings than in the past. Our server was nice, but MIA much of the time. People were crammed in and one chair at our table was a target for passers by. The tuna tartar actually tasted old. Hope they make a menu comeback.
Best seafood in town
I took my Father-in-Law and family to Docs for his 89th birthday. The food was outstanding as was our waiter Doug. They had a halibut special that was just out of this world. We topped it off with cappuccinos. This is one of the top restaurants in Atlantic City and looking forward to a return visit.
We were seated at one of the worst tables by far. I never complain but the monkfish tasted frozen and the service was very very slow. The one entree was so salty it wasn’t edible. On a brighter note, the clans and oysters were delicious.
Dock's is our favorite restaurant. It never disappoints! We always order the crab saute. So simple but amazing!
What a wonderful meal from top to bottom. Started with scallop ceviche and 1 1/2 dozen mixed oysters. All were fresh and plump and cleaned well. The viadiala cranberry salad special was delicious. The halibut special was incredibly well cooked - moist but cooked through - but the big hit was the pan roasted branzino, which may have been the best seafood dish we have ever tasted. Excellent wine selection at really good prices and great digestifs and dessert drink options. The key lime pie was light and tasty and everyone’s banana cream pie looked amazing.
This place is fantastic! Fresh seafood, amazing entrees, best dirty martini (with blue cheese olives!) I've had. Amazing meal and fantastic ambience. Never disappoints.
lively Bar, good drinks, great food. Fresh oysters and a perfectly steamed lobster. What more could you ask for! Others ate the table had chowders and soft shells. Everyone enjoyed immensely.
Great food. Great wine. Service a little slow.
My wife & I have been coming here for more than 10 years, we have never had a bad meal. The clam chowder is phenomenal & we both love the fresh horseradish. The specials are always unique and delicious, don't forget to leave room for their fabulous desserts.
We had a great time at Dock’s Oyster House. The ambiance was great and everyone was friendly. We started with a drink at the bar and my Tito’s martini was perfectly made. We then had the cheese stuffed olives and popcorn apps which were great. Helen was our server and was a joy. She helped us plan out our meal which was the crab sauté for the table and two filet mignons with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Both of which were fantastic. She also added four scampi style shrimp to my dish for me. We capped off the meal with creme brûlée and an apple crisp. I couldn’t ask for a better dining experience and would definitely recommend dining at Dock’s Oyster house for freshness and quality.
Always fresh, large portions, creative specials.
The menu was varied and interesting and the entrees we ordered were very good and prepared well. We were there on a Thursday night and it was full. However, the tables are quite close together. And a group of three were seated right next to us that was loud and cursing the entire time. This made the entire dining experience at Dock's quite disappointing.
Wonderful service, excellent food
My fav restaurant in AC! Best clam chowder, fabulous selection of oysters and amazing mixologists make it a great night out - either for a date or solo adventure!
Highly recommend for those who take their dining seriously.
Forget the hotel restaurant. This is where you eat dinner when in AC. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.
Outstanding all-around dining experience!
Great food and drinks! Overall a good experience from start to finish. We love Doc’s. The seafood tower is awesome and the octopus was scrumptious!
I think the space was fabulous! From the moment you enter, you're met with a grand bar and live music from the hidden piano right across from it. The ambient lighting gave a relaxing and beautiful hue against the white tablecloths and wine displays. Shannon single-handedly took care of our large group (with separate checks). I can't say enough about her level of service and that of the hostesses at Dock's. The restaurant and service notwithstanding was only second to the AMAZING food! I would come back again and again and again... Definitely recommending this restaurant to all of my friends and associates that plan to travel to Atlantic City. I LOVE THIS PLACE after one visit. 5 stars have never been easier to give.
Celebrating an anniversary and two birthdays and could not have picked a nicer place. Haven't been in Docks in a few years and found that it was renovated and more beautiful than before. They still have a piano player who played one of my old favorite songs from years ago. The food is still outstanding. I had the oyster appetizers and the Rockefeller and Champagne oysters were very tasty. Had the Docks salad and an order of the very tender octopus. Everyone was extremely happy with their food We had a variety of dishes: the fried seafood combination, the stuffed flounder, and the breaded tuna, were standouts. Drinks were tasty and the banana cream pie was delicious. Our server was very efficient and gracious. Really enjoyed!!
Food was great. Didnt put 5 star.. not due to any bad food.. just was looking for possibly something a little but more outside the box.
Place was just awesome...Food and ambiance were perfect...Would highly recommend....Had Tuna was fantastic..wife had Red Snapper and said it was delicious...Plan on definitely going back...
Very romantic restaurant with delicious food.
Outstanding service by Abraham. Food at dinner and drinks at bar were excellent.
This is a great local restaurant in Atlantic City not associated with a casino. Owned by the same people as the Knife and Fork and has the same quality. The have a full bar and valet parking which adds to the overall rating. Food and service were both excellent. This place is a winner for sure. Will definitely return.
Known about Docs for many years but this was our first time there and it was Fantastic! we will be back and I want to take advantage of the happy hour specials our waiter was Excellent, I believe his name was Walter.
