I love the atmosphere, service and food here at Dock's. Secon trip in ten months and every bit as good as the first time around. Started off with a Negroni cocktail and the bartender knew his/her stuff because it was perfect! Tried their snapper crudo appetizer (which is smaller than some of the other choices but delicious) and followed that... More

Stopping by at 4PM on a Monday worked out great. If you enjoy oysters, $1 a piece was nice and the choice was fine and they were shucked perfectly, with plenty of juice in the shell. Drinks were a bit pricey $8-$10 which probably makes up for the fine selection of menu items during happy hour at super prices. Would... More

Loved the fresh, open remodel (but the room can get noisy). Oysters fresh and served properly, chowder is very good with rich not too thick broth, fresh clams, and tasty bacon. Crab sauté never disappoints.

Wasn't sure if we would be able to get a table because they were booked with reservations... went in to eat at the bar but a table became available. Enjoyed some apps at the bar during happy hour - $1 oysters were great!! Moved to a table and everything we each ordered was delicious. The soup and the entrees. Service... More

Great service and food. Leave room for dessert, Joe's cheese cake is excellent. Oysters are phenomenal. Salad was great to start our meal. Wide range of wines and drinks. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. There was a live piano player, a nice bar scene, and the service was professional. If I get back to Atlantic City, I will definitely eat here again.

If you're in AC Dock's is a great place for happy hour eats. We had $1 oysters (three kinds) and heavily discounted apps, from lobster mac & cheese to smoked fish dip and calamari. There's a reason it fill s up fast.

Came here while in town for a Tradeshow. First time here since it was remodeled. Much bigger and roomier restaurant. Service was decent. Ordered the seafood tower for 2 for $34. Probably best deal in town. 1/2 Maine lobster, clams, oysters, 2 jumbo shrimp, shrimp Cervante and plenty of lump crabmeat. Enough here for 3 people or even a main... More

We stopped in for their happy hour because they had $1 oysters. They were excellent! We also had the mini crab cakes which were equally good (almost completely lump crab with little filler). We decided to stay for dinner and had a great meal with excellent service. We will definitely be back when we are in the area.
