“Eat some oysters, guy!”

In 1897, Harry "call me Dock" Dougherty opened Dock's Oyster House with 60 seats and very high standards. Harry's vision of a fine restaurant which served the best seafood and steaks available in a warm, friendly environment has been carried on by three generations of Doughertys who share his commitment to quality and service. That commitment has sustained Dock's through two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the decline and rebirth of Atlantic City, and has established the family owned restaurant as a local institution. In 1997, the Dougherty family, loyal Dock's customers and the entire community celebrated the centennial anniversary of Dock's Oyster House. Even after several refurbishments and four generations of leadership, Dock's still retains the charm for which it has always been known. The Dougherty family's standards for excellent seafood and steaks and impeccable service are just as high today as they were when Harry Dougherty first opened the doors to Dock's Oyster House in 1897. Dock's Oyster House is centrally located in 2405 Atlantic Avenue, within walking distance from the world-famous Boardwalk and the Atlantic City Convention Center. Free parking is available next door to the restaurant.

I've been down to Atlantic City for work a handful of times in the past few months and I'd put off a visit to Dock's longer than I should've. A restaurant doesn't stay in business for 125 years... Read more
