Fodor's Expert Review Dock's Oyster House

$$$$ Atlantic City Seafood

Owned and operated by the Dougherty family since 1897, the city's oldest restaurant serves seafood in a setting of wood and stained glass engraved with nautical scenes. Sample from the raw bar, try the flounder stuffed with crabmeat, or test your mettle against a hulking steamed lobster (they sell them up to 7 lbs). The wine list is expansive and reasonably priced. A must for anyone in search of a taste of old Atlantic City.
