Dock's Oyster House, an Atlantic City Institution

Menu features only the finest fish and shellfish prepared to bring out their natural flavors, homemade salads, soups and sides made with locally produced meats and produce. There is also a comprehensive selection of beer cocktails and wine available.

Excellent service was offered, along with classic seafood dishes like oysters Rockefeller and 12oz filet mignon as entrees. Piano music added an enjoyable element to our dining experience.
Over the years Dock's, has remained a  family-run and operated business, as well as maintaing its excellence over time by periodically renovating its interior to reflect modern tastes and decor.

Dock's, established in 1897, has long been an Atlantic City landmark. Three generations of Doughertys have upheld Harry's commitment to quality and service; this loyalty has sustained them through two World Wars, the Great Depression, decline, and revitalization in Atlantic City.
