Elegant dining with top of the line service in this busy shore restaurant. Made reservations and were seated on time and immediately attended to by our waiter. Ordered the Sampler appetizer to start, Oysters Rockefeller, Grilled Shrimp and Clams Casino. Two of each the shrimp were large and flavorful. Clams Casino, needed more bacon, the red pepper took over and the clams were whole and rubbery. The star of the appetizer, the Oysters Rockefeller, very tender and a great blend of flavors!
We also ordered the Dock’s House Salad, mixed greens with toasted walnuts, blue cheese, apple and a cider vinaigrette. Delicious flavor with all of the ingredients complimenting each other well.
Our entrée was served shortly after the appetizers were finished, nicely timed. We chose the Pan-Seared Crab Cakes and the Fried Oysters. The crab cakes were full of lump crabmeat with absolutely no filler. Very light on the seasoning, dipped in batter and complimented well with a roasted red pepper puree. Without the puree, all that was tasted was pure crabmeat and the light batter, very appealing. The meal also came with a baked potato and a side of vegetables. The Fried Oysters were served on a half shell (nice presentation), lightly breaded, very tender and flavorful.
Closed the dinner out with Crème Brulee, crisped perfectly a fantastic interpretation of one of my personal favorites!
Fine dining at its best in Atlantic City. Superior meals with great service and a nice atmosphere. Pricing on the higher side, well worth the money.
