We came here for the oysters, which they had a great selection, and they were excellent as well !!! Seafood dishes were excellent !! I highly recommend this restaurant. What I didn't know about this restaurant is that they had their own parking lot !!!...Definitely a plus in AC !! We Ubered here not knowing. We will definitely drive the next time, and there will be a next time !!! Thanks for an outstanding dinner !!!More

Wonderful to return to Docks Happy Hour! Food was great, live music was wonderful. Kudos to Docks for continuing to please guests (even after with the challenges Covid presents)!

We had dinner there while in ac for a long weekend - nothing bad to say! Calamari appetizer was great, and dinner specials, particularly seafood risotto, we're very good. Our waiter, Walter, took excellent care of us, and valet parking was a pleasant surprise. Would...definitely recommend!More

January 2021, and I was visiting Atlantic City for my 52nd birthday trip. My friend (also a frequenter of AC) wanted to take me out to celebrate, and this is the place he chose. Since I hadn't eaten here before, I was excited to have...a meal here. When we arrived, there were people enjoying drinks and appetizers at the bar, and we were taken to a nice table, all socially distanced. The decor is along the lines of a lodge with various nautical photos and items tastefully displayed throughout the venue. My phone wasn't pulling up the QR code, so the waiter gave us paper menus. The menu was simple, but appetizing. This is mainly a seafood restaurant... I don't eat seafood (I'm allergic), but if there are chicken or beef options on a menu, it's fine. The menu at that evening's meal had two steak options, which made me very happy! The waitstaff was friendly, attentive and everything went smoothly. My meal was simple: red wine, steak & chocolate mousse for dessert. PERFECTION. I usually prefer a nice simple steak meal, as long as it's done right. And, it sure was! The meal my friend had (the salmon) he seemed to really enjoy. Don't forget to make sure to make reservations! *i was enjoying my meal so much, I FORGOT TO TAKE PHOTOS OF MY MEAL, except for the dessert! I hope you have as much of an enjoyable experience as I did!More

I was able to make reservations online and change them when we were running late. They offered free parking. They followed Covid guidelines. The staff was nice. Our waiter(s) were great. The food is not pricey (in my opinion). Quiet, dimmed lighting, piano playing, lovely...alcohol menu. The menus is not overcrowded. I had crab cakes and sautéed spinach. The crab cakes were ok. I have had better however they were very fresh and stuffed with red and green peppers. The corn and crab chowder was good. The crab in the soup was the read deal.More

First, We hate to write bad reviews especially during these Covid times BUT, here we go, It was our 35th Wedding Anniversary, our favorite restaurants were closed so we decided to Dock's Oyster House since we have been there before and enjoyed it very much....We arrived in a pouring rain and was quickly seated, we sat for several minutes before anyone came to our table after she arrived ( I do not want to use her name) cam to our table,my husband tried to joke a bit about the weather to make light of things but she acted as if he wasn't there and asked if we would like a drink, we said yes please it was our anniversary and we were there to celebrate, she never even acknowledged my husband mentioned it. Drinks came, we waited again, order was taken, very business like. apps arrived, very good but we had to ask for silverware and napkins to eat them. Afterwards, dinner arrived, we had to ask for condiments. Really, through the whole dinner we may have seen her 3 times while the waitress severing the tables across from us was friendly and joking with her guest. Just want to say the food was good but our server really made the meal just mediocre.More

Every single dish and cocktail was superb. Our server, Diego, was the best waiter I've had in last 10 years. We cant wait to come back and try even more dishes. Thanks for an amazing evening out!

Yes there is alternate parking available, and I think that there’s still a valet. I read about parking on Resy. We took an Uber though.
