Under the direction of new owner Frank Dougherty, the legendary Knife & Fork has just completed an extensive renovation aimed at restoring and enhancing this Atlantic City landmark. Featuring a brand new, state-of-the-art kitchen, expanded bar and lounge area, as well as ocean views from the main dining rooms, the Knife & Fork is once again the place to see and be seen in Atlantic City. The Knife & Fork's new menu, featuring the finest steaks and seafood prepared on a wood-fired grill, is complemented by an extensive wine list and 10,000 bottle wine "cellar." The Knife & Fork is now offering lunch every Friday from 11:30-4:30 pm. It's the perfect spot to celebrate the end of the work week or get a jump start on your weekend.

Amazing, first time to Atlantic City and we were having a business/pleasure meal. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. My girlfriend, business partner, and I all absolutely LOVED everything. Highly recommended going forward and would love to come back!

Excellent classic steak and lobster dinner. We ordered multiple cowboy steaks and lobster thermidors. The quality of the dishes was not consistent. My steak was too thick and chewy whereas my colleague's was much more tender. They were cooked to the same order. Two of my other colleagues ordered lobster thermidors that tasted different as well. The food was great, but I would have preferred a more consistent experience for my party.

I have been to Knife and Fork twice and both times were outstanding! The food was delicious, portions were great for the price and both times Our server was excellent and attentive. I do not like being rushed when I am havin a multiple course meal, and they space out everything perfect. I will definitely go back and enjoy again.

We had a fabulous dinner here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff is welcoming, cordial and professional, perfect accompaniments to an excellent menu that features innovative specials along with some offerings that stand the test of time. I highly recommend the Knife & Fork Inn to anyone looking for a night out to celebrate a special occasion or to just enjoy an excellently prepared dinner.

This was our 2nd visit to K&F. We loved the first visit BUT this visit was anything but love. The food was once again exceptional but the service was mediocre at best (and that's being kind). SADLY, our waitress was totally disengaged from our table and the one next to us. Waited far too long for a drink order, then ordering our food was a wait. Never was asked how was the meal or for a 2nd cup of coffee. In fact, she NEVER asked during or after the meal how things were!!! LAst time the service was impeccable.
Our previous visit we sat upstairs great ambiance, this time we had a table in the bar area. NOT the place to try and enjoy a quiet meal, if we wanted a bar atmosphere there are quite a few other places to go. This area was noisy, people standing and milling around our table. Needless to say, the night was truly unpleasant (even with the great food) - Due to this experience,we would have to strongly consider whether we "gamble" with a return visit.
PS: If you go demand a table upstairs if you prefer a civilized meal.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lives on LBI and frequents Atlantic City for dining. We were not disappointed and definitely recommend. The menu has a variety of foods and a sustainable menu features are delicious. I had the scallops and squash and had the leftovers the next day! We will definitely be back

The lobster thermidor was excellent. The corn and crab soup was memorable and something that I would order again in a heartbeat. I am not surprised that this restaurant has been open for over a hundred years. It's top notch.

This was our first visit to Knife & Fork. The décor of the restaurant was warm and inviting. Our server Sandy, was exceptional - friendly and informative. We had a delicious wine selection and our meals were excellent. We finished our meal sharing the banana, chocolate burrito - I could have eaten more than one of them! I would highly recommend the Knife & Fork for any occasion.

This is a classic, old-school restaurant that is elegant with outstanding service. Definitely one of the top spots in Atlantic City. We both had the filet, and it was prepared perfectly and would stand up to any high-end steak restaurant. The seafood tower was a great appetizer to share. Great place for special occasions.

First time visiting here after decades in the area, and so very worth the wait. Our server, Suzy, told us the history of the restaurant (and former gentlemen's club in the '20s), the prohibition tales, and old Hollywood glamour. Our wine and meals were sublime. The Cat Stevens Pandora station playing in the background was clutch. Can't wait to take our visiting friends here.

An Atlantic City classic which never fails to exceed expectations! Tasty and delectable dishes for steak and sea food lovers. The soup and salads were enough for a meal. The appetizers could also be a meal of you prefer to go that route. Leave room for desert! You don't want to miss out... AMAZING!

OUTSTANDING! Everything from appetizers to main with side vegies to desert was excellent. Fresh ingredients with quality that was readily evident. Salads were crisp, fresh although the seafood chopped salad could have had more than one or two shrimp pieces. Soups were wonderful, lamb chops and ribeyes delicious and perfectly prepared. Deserts also excellent. Professional waitstaff, helpful and attentive. Will definitely be coming back
