Oysters were good but the crab saute was unimpressive. Most of the plate was zucchini and squash. Expected better.
Started with cocktails and clams casino at the bar. Dining room I had the broiled salmon husband had the scallops both dinners were excellent.
51th wedding anniversary
Haven’t been there since the renovation was completed. Much better atmosphere and much more elbo room. Especially at the tables. Food didn’t disappoint. The only negative was I felt with the appetizers. We got the medley and the calamari. The medley display was blah and if I remember correctly they used to serve much more calamari on the plate. Was very light then previous times we got it.
Love this place for all of our special occasions
Traditional seafood tavern with a pure touch of class. Service was outstanding as was the food.
We really loved Docks but haven’t been back because our last time was a disappointment. It was not long after it reopened due to renovations. We had very bad service and the meal was not up to the usual standard. I am glad to report we had excellent service and food this time, must have been a bad night the last time we were there. So glad it’s bavk on track and we will definitely be going back. It was awesome!!!
Just a can’t miss seafood restaurant everything is outstanding. Amongst party we had bronzino, snapper, halibut and of course oysters. Can’t say enough good things
All the reviews were spot on, this place is amazing!!!
Enjoyed a delightful dinner at Dock’s. Fresh seafood and great dessert. Will return again when we are at the Jersey shore.
Fantastic service and the food was phenomenal! A must go for all visits to Atlantic City for sure!
This was our first time At Dock's. It was our anniversary. The food and service was excellent!
Would definitely recommend to everyone. Our server Melissa was great! The oysters were delicious! we will be back!!
The food is great fresh sea food. I told all of my friends.
Cocktails & oysters at the bar were fabulous. After sitting at our table, the waitress service was not the best. The famous”Oyster Stew” was extremely watered down.
We have eaten here before, and this time was a complete letdown....and it was my birthday- no special treatment here...
Food was delicious, been there many times. Our waiter Alexander was outstanding
We came here for my birthday upon recommendation. The place was jam packed so we were thankful we had a reservation. The raw oysters were divine, as well as the shrimp ceviche and pecan crusted salmon. My husband said his scallops were chewy, which was disappointing. I also wish my salmon came with more than some sliced apples and a tiny bed of spinach. While the food was very good, our server was MIA most of the time. I would return but only for a special occasion.
Great evening for my wife and I on our 21st wedding anniversary. I did include the info about our anniversary on my reservation through open table but it was missed by the restaurant. No worries
Have been trying to make time to dine here and now I wonder why we waited so long. Food, service, vibe excellent. Will be a regular in the future
We took my mother in law for her birthday. The food was outstanding, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Fantastic place to treat someone special!
Seating thumbs down too closely sat to other tables.
Appetizers- over priced for what you get - for example $17 lobster Mac n cheese served in the shell of a lobster no actual lobster in it.
Our staters began with the best Manhattan Clam Chowder and Oysters we have had in a very long time. Our main courses were fish and lobster that melted in our mouth. This was our third trip to Docks and we thoroughly enjoyed each visit. We were in AC celebrating a Birthday and dining at Docks Oyster House was the cherry on the cake.
Everything was perfect.
Wow, plain and simple a perfect meal with great service. Grilled Octopus and Wasabi Oysters for appetizers was sensational. Chef allowed us to switch the fish selection on a special... which shouldn’t be an issue and it wasn’t. Red Snapper over a Parmesan Risotto. Truly fantastic. Don’t think....just make the reservation. You’ll be happy
Business dinner. We had their special “Halibut “ and their house salad...both outstanding!
We have loved Dock’s for years. I would estimate about 25-30 times and will continue to go back... this experience was fine
Food was awesome , happy hour was a great value , better then any hotel restaurant.
Great evening! The specials were right on the money! My clients were very impressed. I always enjoy coming back.
Eager to try as this is well rated on many "best of" lists. Not disappointed at all. Food preparation was excellent and justified the ratings. The ambience was good although all parties were crowded into a small area even when tables were available elsewhere leading to higher noise level than optimal. Service was good. Live piano was a nice touch as well.
Danny is an exceptional server. All 4 couples in my party had a blast.
Last 4 visits over twelve months
some up and down
At its best great fish large portions service with a smile
At its worst intolerable sound level smaller portions and indifferent service
The kitchen really varies from visit to visit
Wine list great and very reasonable
May take a rest before returning
It remains an institution
Birthday dinner was exceptional.. from the excellent food with good size portions to the attentive staff it was an amazing experience.
Doug our server was great.
Always a great dining experience at Dock's. Never disappointing. The freshest seafood, generous portions, excellent prices and the nicest servers make this the "go to" place in Atlantic City. The valet parking can't be beat either.
Always a great meal. Really like the renovation! Nice to be able to get a variety of oysters on the half shell and compare the taste, look, size. It's fun.
Docks never disappoints. Best seafood restaurant in NJ.
Everything from the food (highly recommend the lobster Mac and cheese served in a lobster shell and the best fried calamari I have ever had) to the service, and the opera singing piano man, made this a wonderful night out. The wait staff, were warm, friendly, and attentive. I have been to AC a million times, this was my first time at Docks, it will not be my last. A+
Delicious spot in Atlantic City. Would definitely recommend.
It was a birthday dinner place it very pricey with mediocre food went there based on the reviews but I was very disappointed in the food
Food is fantastic, have never had a bad meal here. I would recommend the Oysters if you like them, they are so good and have many varieties. My husbands manhatten clam chowder was different than he has ever had, but fantastic.
Dock's Oyster House has been an Atlantic City staple restaurant for over 100 years! The seafood is always fresh and the service by the wait staff is impeccable. We dined on Easter Sunday so it was a little busier than usual, but we enjoyed our dinner. We started with the Seafood Tower and it was spectacular! Three layers of chilled raw and cooked seafood come artfully presented on a steel "tower" which included a whole lobster, the tail sliced for easy sharing, six Brigantine Salt oysters, six clams on the half, probably a dozen mussels, lump crabmeat, colossal shrimp topped off with a martini glass which contained ceviche. If that wasn't enough, we also ordered the blue cheese stuffed fried olives which were to die for, light and crispy with some zucchini and eggplant "fries" to compliment it. Our party enjoyed the rack of lamb, expertly cooked med/rare, the red snapper with mashed potatoes on a bed of spinach and soft shell crabs. We were too stuffed for dessert. This is probably the 6th time I have been here in the last two years, and it is not the last. KUDOS to the Chef and the Dougherty Family for this incredible establishment, steeped in Atlantic City History.
