When I go to Dock’s for dinner I simply expect the best quality food & service. Other than their beautiful renovation / expansion, nothing has changed since I was a kid and the original values continue. A true AC gem and NOT in a casino. Helen rocks.

I have been a customer of Docks for many,many years and while on occasion, the food does not meet the usual standard, I believe it is the best seafood restaurant in the entire area..

My wife and I make Dock’s our choice for Valentines Day and our anniversary. The seafood is extraordinary and we have never been disappointed. We are especially impressed with the remodeling of the entire restaurant.

The restaurant had a beautiful ambience;however the server appeared to be a bit talkative and intense in my opinion but she as nice. They said they used a team waiting staff; however the other guy Will only removed the crumbs. The bread was great and the calamari, however the portion was small. MY husband ordered steak but they forgot the mashed potatoes. I ordered of risotto and it was prepared wrong first and the. The remake was watery and tasted like just plain rice and had to sent back. The Fried platter was bland in taste and my meal at red lobster tasted better than this fried platter. Because of the situations at hand we were given a free desert that was also bland in taste. Will not be returning to this restaurant.

We don’t like the second floor as much as the first floor. The food was again outstanding. we had a younger waitress who is good and attentive but at times a little bit too attentive which interrupted our meal and conversation almost as if she wanted the table for the next party but she was knowledgeable and helpful. The piano guy was new to us. And he made a comment about a two dollar tip for one song. The song was a The Piano Man by Billy Joel and the way he performed it he should’ve paid me $10 to listen to it. Not at all like the other piano folks they’ve had at dock’s, He was a bit of a Putz I must’ve thought he was a lot better than he was . Overall we love docs because the food is always great and again not one item was less than great pricey oh yes but we love Docks

We were very pleased with our dining experience at Dock’s Oyster House. It was recently renovated and looks cool and contemporary. Our first dinner there was in 1972 and we’ve been back a few times over the years when in AC. The food was terrific as we totally enjoyed appetizers of grilled octopus, scallops cervichi and raw clams. Our main meals of halibut and seafood risotto were delicious. Service was attentive and friendly but the amazing part was how reasonable the dinner cost was! Definitely worth coming here.

Unfortunately my Halibut was foul. The server Kim and Chef wanted to offer another dish however I became ill outside in the street. I have been a loyal customer for 20 years and regardless of my recent experience I will continue to dine at Doc’s.

Always a great dining experience dining at Docks. We were celebrating Valentine's Day and there is no better place to go on a special occasion such as Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, than Docks because they handle high volume days like it's "just another day at the office". My wife and I each had a 3 pound lobster stuffed with jumbo lump crabmeat. Docks does lobster better than anyone in Atlantic City. I also had their wonderful octopus for an appetizer along with a dozen Wellfleet oysters. Their lemon meringue pie is another winner. A couple of cucumber Hendricks martinis and our server Abraham's excellent service added to the enjoyment of the evening.

We’ve been to Docks numerous times and this was,by far, the best meal we’ve ever had there!!! Halibut was superb and stuffed shrimp was delicious. Will, as always, was our waiter and makes dining at Docks such a pleasant experience. He’s one of the reasons we keep coming back!!! Love this restaurant!!!
