In 1897, Harry “call me Dock” Dougherty believed there was a great opportunity in Atlantic City to open a restaurant that would serve the finest seafood available in a clean, comfortable and friendly atmosphere. And so he opened Dock’s Oyster House, with 60 seats, no liquor license and very high standards. After 120 years, this restaurant has grown to include both a liquor license and quite a bit more dining space for those who love their fresh, delicious seafood and some of the best oysters in Atlantic County.

Seafood is the star of the show at this restaurant in Atlantic County. For appetizers, you can choose fried oysters, Clams Casino, grilled octopus, broiled oysters, and steamed clams. Chowder and oyster stew also pair well with the starters. You can also get a Caesar, beet, or Dock’s House Salad as an additional precursor to the meal.

Just a few of the entrees on the menu are Crispy Wasabi Tuna, lobster tail, Pan-Sautéed Crab Cakes, and Dock’s Seafood Fry. You and your guests can enjoy a succulent spread of mussels, shrimp, lump crab, tuna sashimi, clams, chilled lobster, ceviche, and several different types of oysters from the raw bar. For those not craving seafood, Dock’s Oyster House offers other options as well. These include lamb, sirloin, and filet mignon.

Dock’s Oyster House also has a full bar. It is well-stocked with nearly every kind of drink imaginable. Pair your meal selection with a sparkling, white, rose, or red wine from the restaurant’s award-winning wine list.

Charming Interior at Dock’s Oyster House

The classic building housing this seafood place in Atlantic County features delightful character. The century-old architecture provides a nice base, but this seafood restaurant has also undergone several renovations to keep it fresh and modern. The interior is a charming blend of vintage and new, and their newest addition is 3 stories tall. There is also a piano bar that provides live entertainment.

Parties can be held at Dock’s in their private, 60-guest dining room. This experience comes with a menu with several selections to choose from in starters and main courses.
