I have both read and heard great things about Docks. I went on Easter Sunday. I arrived early and sat at the bar for about 45 minutes. The bar tenders were both friendly and helpful. The piano player was excellent. We were able to be seated a little early. The food and service were really good. Everything arrived timely and... More

I know it is more convenient to eat at the casino you are playing at but I strongly suggest you consider leaving the casino and having a meal at Dock's Oyster House. I had dinner with my girlfriend at Dock's the other night and everything we both ate were amazingly delicious. Which tells me you can't go wrong with anything... More

On my recent trip to AC my friend and I went to Dock's. We called about a half hour before we planned on going and they were able to fit us in. The Oyster Stew was fantastic as were the Cape May Salt Oysters. Front Desk was pleasant and very helpful, bartender was friendly and quick with service and our... More

My husband and I frequent this establishment almost every time we go to Atlantic City. The food is exceptional! We have had dinner there, but prefer going for happy hour! From the moment you walk in, you are pampered by a live piano player to soothe your cares away! The oysters and other appetizers are very reasonably priced and delicious!... More

This was my birthday dinner and it started out very well. My wife and I started at the bar with a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc and 2 apps. I ordered 4 malpaque & 4 blue point oysters which were good especially with their mignonette. My wife ordered the calamari which was great. Then everything went downhill. At our table... More

Always been my favorite for food, atmosphere,service. Clam chowder, soft shell crabs come to mind first. Only problem is the extreme change in temp. in the summer. It is actually too cold for many to enjoy their food which is also prematurely cold because of the AC. Would be nice to have a warmer section for us patrons who would... More

I went for the first time during restaurant week. I'm not a big seafood person so I was nervous. I ordered seafood as did everyone I was with. Everybody loved their dinners. Appetizers were amazing. Elegant atmosphere. Very large bar on the first floor with pianist. FYI same owners as Knife and Fork. Both are excellent. We'll be back

We have never been here but was recommended by the ladies at the Convention Center. The seared scallops were great and the soup was to die for. I was told they are known for their oyster stew, next time for sure. The place was recently renovated and was beautiful.

My husband booked reservations for my 40th birthday the beginning of April. Dinner, service, atmosphere was amazing! The food was outstanding and the service was on point. Every worker there was so nice, knowledgeable and professional. We can't wait to return! Keep up the great work Docks!
