I would like to start by saying that the food at Dock's, depending on what you order is definitely above average. But, it is not the phenomenal experience that I had hoped it would be. I'd wanted to visit Dock's for YEARS, but had never had the pleasure of doing so. I visited this past Sunday with my husband and... More

We are visiting from Nebraska and were looking for a great seafood restaurant and stumbled on this amazing gem. Our complements to the Chef, management, staff, entertainment, and ownership of this wonderful establishment. It is beautifully decorated, professionally trained staff, creative delicious recipes, a large variety of menu options, quality furnishings, and very inviting atmosphere.

I ordered the stuffed shrimp and my boyfriend ordered the pecan crusted salmon. Both were amazing and some of the best food I've ever had. Food was pricey but you get what you pay for. Drinks are strong and also very good. Would definitely eat here again when I'm in the Atlantic City area.

The newly renovated Dock's is beautiful, they took the interior to another level. We had an early reservation, arrived on time, the Valet took our car and we went immediately to our table. The piano played in the background as our sever told us about the specials. Drinks were very good and prompt, our soup and appetizers followed shortly thereafter.... More

My wife and I just returned to Dock's for the first time since the fall of 2015. Wow! The renovations are amazing! The building is double the size that it was with a roomy bar, more space between tables, and a second floor. It is big, modern, tasteful, and has nice architectural details that the old building never had the... More

Spilt the soup (corn crab chowder) and fall salad with my hubby...and ordered the special, seared scallops over risotto. EVERYTHING was amazing. The service was also very nice. It was Thursday, very quiet. They have parking, wish I'd known!! Highly recommend!

Visited Doc's during the #50bitesAC charity/promotional event. They served a Champagne Leek Broiled Oyster. It was fairly tasty. Place was very busy. Valet parking attendant was very friendly.

First time there since they've reopened. One word. Wow. As you would expect they did a great job. The bar area is very impressive with considerable space added. The meal was phenomenal. Enjoyed dinner with a party of 8 and to a person each meal was a hit. Always enjoyable, never disappoints. Looked forward to enjoying a Happy Hour or... More

Have been going to the ''OLD'' Docks for well over 20 years and ALWAYS had a fabulous experience. This was first trip to the ''NEW'' Docks. Kept waiting almost 30 minutes past reservation time of 7:30. Very noisy with high ceiling and little to absorb the noise. Crab appetizer was miniscule. Fried shrimp was somewhat overcooked but edible. Place is... More
