Dock's Oyster House
Always amazing service and food. Will be back!
The meals were absolutely outstanding!
Doug, our server, was very friendly
Great place ....will return ASAP
Our dinner was delicious. Our server Helen was terrific.
I've been coming to Atlantic City for 45 years. How I missed this Top Ten restaurant that's celebrating 123 years in business escapes me! I can assure you I will make this a regular stop each time I visit AC from here on out. The service is excellent and the food divine. One dish was better than the next. It's rare you give a restaurant a perfect score of 5 but Dock's Oyster House deserves it. What a wonderful culinary experience. First class all the way.
Our 2nd visit to Dock's! Great service, food and drinks! Can't go wrong!
One of the best seafood restaurants in Atlantic City. I come in from Philly because you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu however shrimp cocktail, the best crab cakes anywhere and the cheese pie are amazing. Great job.
Wow! Never disappoints!
Overall, the food was good. I was not impressed with the Caesar salad which was bland at best. The crab cakes were not what I expected from a restaurant that specializes in fish. I was expecting lump crabmeat but didn’t get it. The taste was fine.
Service, with the exception of the bus boy, was not good at all. Again, for the prices you pay, service should be better.
We have been to this restaurant several times for happy hour and sat at the bar. Service was always good and the food very good.
The noise level is quite high but you get accustomed to it.
The food and service were very good Doc's never disappoint. The only shocker was ordering a bourbon at the bar only to find out when the bill came that it was $38 per glass. Since the menu at no price I guess it was my fault but a warning would have been nice
I asked if you made a good bloody mary before I ordered, server told me it's just tom juice and vodka, so I skipped, you need to up that for a shore seafood restaurant. Otherwise the dinner was good, not particularly great but good. Please change the crap mixed veggie mix to something more palatable, that was awful. I also feel that you changed your cheese pie recipe, it wasn't as good as in the past.
Excellent happy hour at the bar and the food was very good and worth the price. Also Abraham, our server, was very outgoing and attentive. Will return.
My wife’s 40th bday dinner. Booked it based on reviews, menu, location, history. Definately didn’t disappoint! Discovered after booking it that the late great Chef Bourdain recognized Dock’s on his NJ food trail. That says a lot!
Absolutely amazing food! The clam chowder was the best we've ever had! We waited awhile to place or order, for the check & for receipt but I believe our waitress could've used help as the food & dirty dishes taken where prompt. Food food, highly recommend if you don't mind a noisy restaurant
Always a pleasure and a special treat to have dinner here! Looking forward to our next visit as always!
The food was delicious at Docks. The only issue was the waiter tried to insinuate he knew what I wanted. It seemed he thought we could not afford additional sides. We went back and forth until he understood that I order what I want because I can pay for it. My recommendation is when there is a large party, please provide experienced, unbiased wait staff. Thank you for the great food!
We were able to grab a late evening reservation and Dock's called us directly and informed us we could come in earlier if we would prefer due to another cancellation. Drinks and Food was prompt. Shellfish for 2 was great, plenty to eat and variety of items.
Atlantic City's go to place !!! The best Happy Hour and best restaurant in town. Parking too...
Waitress was not very good we had guest with celiac she came out with Caesar salad with croutons in it he had told her twice no croutons in salad also whole lobster someone had at table was not great touch and not a good taste rest of dinners were just ok .. we are used to great food at dicks not this time ! Even Maine chowder was just good not great as it used to be little disappointed all over!
Very impressed Food/Service was top notch. Will definitely be coming back
Absolutely phenomenal in every aspect! Truly a special experience. Landmark of Atlantic City since 1897! Original menu items from the restaurant’s inception also available. Beautiful ambiance and service, with top shelf quality seafood. A go-to in Atlantic City and at the Jersey Shore!
Excellent food and service!! Highly recommend to all family and friends!!
We traveled all the way from Long Beach Island, NJ to Atlantic City, approximately 40 miles, just to enjoy Docks’s....and the trip was worth it! We were not aware of their “happy hour” and enjoyed $1.00 oysters and a refreshing glass of Sancerre before our meal. Dock’s was packed on a Thursday evening after Labor Day and with that delicious seafood we understand why. Can’t wait to visit Dock’s again soon.
Good food, lovely rooms
We had a nice meal and enjoyed our evening. Seafood is fresh and as good as can be. We were able to get a better table with no problem, but the service was just OK....one dish did not come out with the others and we could not find our wait person to let her know. Water refills were not offered and we waited a bit to get our check. The place was not fully packed so not sure why service seemed slow. We'd go again though....food is that good.
The clam chowder was the best I've ever had. I travel frequently all over the country and I usually order chowder. Very, very happy. Crab Aug gratin had too much cheese and not enough crab. Next time I'll get crab saute.
What an awesome place , the food and service is outstanding , quality of the seafood is unmatched, better than any NYC place at a very reasonable price point . The history of Docks speaks for itself. We started out at happy hour at the bar , then had an early dinner . Just a great experience , even though the surrounding area is pretty sleazy . Worth the trip and better than any casino restaurant .
Fabulous, especially because we were greeted by the executive chef...
Celebrating my friends birthday. Everything was perfect. Food delicious. The special of the night was Flounder Franchase. Best I have ever had! Our server was Melissa and she was friendly, knowledgeable about the specials and the menu, and a great personality. Can’t wait to go back!
We make it a point to visit this restaurant every time we come to AC. Food and service are top notch.
We made a reservation which was honored on time.On what we thought would be a slow Monday.. Was busy. live music as well as TV/s at the Bar for a different experience
Walter, our waiter was an experienced Waiter. Linen napkins+ table clothes as nice touch.. people were dressed in shorts & tees, as well as sportcoats!! All age groups were loving the Lobsters!!
Bit of a wait for water + bread..bu. Oysters, octopus, seafood rissoto!!!!! all delish. Wine selection was good, as well! Docks has been around for many years, keeps reinventing itself to stay current.
i ate ther in in the 1950's as a baby !!! Will return!!
I’ve been here several times a year over the last few years. It has always been a sure bet for a great meal and great service. This visit was not. Six people in our party. Food was just ok. Nothing memorable. I got one of the Docks Classics, the Seafood Fry and i have to say I’ve had better food at fast food joints. Service was really poor. Felt like a completely different restaurant since my last visit about 6 months ago. Really very disappointing.
Best seafood in AC. I could go on and on, but it’s second to none.
Food is outstanding but noise level upstairs did not make for a relaxing meal
Have been to Dock's before but was disappointed for a couple of reasons. I called in advance and asked if I could change my reservation count from 4 to 5 and I was rudely told NO. At the restaurant, throughout the course of our meal there were no less than 6-8 empty tables all of which could have accommodated a fifth person, including our own table. Also, the food wasn't as good as it has been previously and the waitress was loud and a bit overbearing. Don't think I will be running back to Dock's anytime soon.
Food and service were excellent. This is my favorite Atlantic City restaurant.
Excellent food, ambiance. VERY disappointed with our waiter (Taz). Not attentive at all , bordering rude !
Lovedddd it. Amazing everything
Happy hour was amazing
Everything was perfect and the food was devine. We love a good seafood dish and the sauces and flavoring were out of this World.
Food was amazing!! The food was so fresh and delicious!! Our waiter Walter was a lot of fun and totally enjoyed ourselves!! Definitely recommend to all!!!
