Fodor's Expert Review Knife and Fork Inn

$$$$ Atlantic City American

The historic Flemish building that holds this restaurant started as a private gentlemen's club in 1912 and was frequented by the notorious power brokers of the day until it was raided by Prohibition agents in 1927. Today it's owned by the Dougherty family, whose four generations have operated Dock's Oyster House, and seafood—from diver scallops and crab cakes to lobster preparations—shines here, while rib-eye, filet mignon, and rack of lamb satisfy landlubbers. Parties of eight or more can take advantage of their Private Dining option, with prix-fixe meals served in intimate rooms.
