Value of dinner was excellent with all selections of menu options I chose. Loved the taste of everything my wife and I ordered.
What I don't understand is why restaurants feel the need to ruin a great meal by completely over charging for drinks. Yes, I have a choice, but really, $44.00 for 2 glasses of Benzinger?? 1 bloody Mary with belvedere for $13.50? Almost $60.00 bucks for 3 drinks!
So, you either suck it up and pay like I did, don't complain unless someone sends you an email to write a review or just drink water.

Enjoyed the summer lobster special. But our server Jason was really outstanding and the other guy who cracked our lobster claws and provided other services was also excellent.

Food was very very good and we would highly recommend it. However the service was lacking we felt. First we were seated at a wobbly table and we were surprised to find that considering this is supposed to be an upscale restaurant. We asked to move and they were going to put us back in a dark corner and we refused that table the third table was fine. We felt our server rushed through everything with us. We think since we weren't ordering a bottle of wine and a lot of cocktails and appetizers that he knew our bill wouldn't be extremely high. Dinner for cocktail for one person and coffee and a shared dessert was around $155 when the check came, there was an item on there that we hadn't ordered. I understand mistakes happen and he did correct it quickly. We were charging the dinner back to our room and thought we would have the opportunity to add the tip on there but he closed the check out and when I asked him about it he said he couldn't do anything about it since the check was closed. Unfortunately for him we didn't have a lot of smaller bills for a tip so he only got about a 15% tip

Another great meal at the Palm, our go-to whenever we stay in AC . Lobster special is always our favorite , we couldn’t finish the whole meal ! Great service by Adam, restaurant was very busy but the service was attentive . First went to the original location in NYC when I was a boy , over 50 years ago !

What more to say about a classic steakhouse? The Palm is the original. It's always a pleasure to visit the Palm and I do often. Great food, ambiance and service. A bit pricey but no different from competitors.

Took 25 mins to be seated even though we had a reservation. Sat at the table almost 20 additional minutes and was never provided with a menu or water - no one approached our table for so long that the table next to us eventually disclosed that they were shocked we hadn’t left yet or yelled at the manager - to be fair they were very busy but the manager crossed our table multiple times. Then as we were waiting someone else’s food was put at our table - honest mistake but then waited another 15 for our own food when the server said “you’re dinner will be out shortly”. The food was really delicious but for the amount of money we spent here I was very dissatisfied with the service

Another enjoyable night at The Palm! John the bartender was friendly, helpful, and his cucumber basil gimlet made to perfection. Our sever Christine Ruane was extremely knowledgeable and personable! Her suggestions were right on point. Scallops wrapped in bacon were delicious. King Crab was succulent and cream spinach no one else can compare. Thank you for making our celebration so perfect! As always, we will definitely be back!

Brought my wife here to celebrate her birthday, right away we were greeted with kindness and respect. Our waitress was wonderful, and funny. The food was amazing!!!! My wife underestimated exactly how much 2lbs of Atlantic King crab really was and struggled eating it but said every bite was amazing. I had a 28oz porterhouse, cooked to perfection and tops a lot of steaks I’ve eating in my life. Overall wonderful place and next time I am in Atlantic City, I will be dining here again. Great eats!!!!

2 Words, service SUCKED! Some idiot who I am assuming is the manager approached my wife to tell her my 7 month old baby couldn’t make noise. The clown never cane to me or address the noisy loud and boisterous family sitting across the restaurant. The server was rude and did not pay attention to our table. I waited 15 minutes to pay. It was supposed to be a birthday dinner for my wife. Turned out to be a horrible night. NEVER AGAIN!!!

We made the reservation months ago to celebrate a birthday. The hostess tried to squeeze our large group into a small table and was annoyed when we said we were not satisfied with the accommodation. We were eventually seated at a better table. There was no reason for the hostess to be rude.

The Palm AC is like a fine bottle of Cabernet .... it just keeps getting better and better!

The staff is amazing! From Jim H. the GM, to Jen at the front desk, to our server Eric and the entire wait staff ...... all made us feel like welcome guests and really appreciated.

The food, as always, was exceptional. Our steaks were prepared to perfection. Do try the new fingerling potatoes!! Service was their usual fast and efficient.

Food was fantastic! Cocktails excellent. Make sure you understand pricing. $700 plus tip for 4 peeps was unexpected. We all shared 1 steak and I asked which one is best to share and the recommendation was the most expensive of course at $140. I should have asked how much. Great experience and fantastic food and service.

We usually love the Palm and get the lobster special all the time. I will never go back to the Atlantic City location. They ran out of water glasses and cocktail forks and the service was poor. The manager never stopped over to our table. The noise level was crazy with children running around. The lobster was burned on the outside and wet and soggy with no flavor on the inside and not edible. Friends of ours at a table for 12 who also had the lobster reported the same thing. And they charged $7.50 for one cappuccino.

We have been going to Palm Restaurants in many cities since 1980. This was our first bad experience at the AC location, due the server. The food was good as usual, but I would not go back again if I had the same server. I did speak with a manager and I did send a note to the restaurant directly.
