Dinner in Atlantic City for Bachelorette

xena1441 Aug 12, 2008 08:02 AM

About 7 girls are heading out to Atlantic City for a bachelorette weekend in January (I know so cold). We will do a pre-show dinner on a Saturday night and of course I come to my Chowhounders for some good advice. Any place you can suggest? We are looking for something reasonable (15-25 entrees) and perhaps fun? Thanks in advance!!

    Buddakan in Philly was a great choice for a recent girls' weekend away. They encourage "family style" ordering so you get to sample a lot of items.

      The Tropicana has a great restaurant area in it. I am a fan of Cuba Libre and Carmine's, what hotel/casino will you be staying at? Do you have a preference for type of food?

        We will be staying at Harrah's and most will take a bus there so good chance we will not have a car. But we could always take a cab. As for preference, we love seafood and "American" food- but are willing to try anything that is recommended here. We will be wearing cocktail dresses that night and we'd like to be confortable in them wherever we are.

        Zena - Sounds like fun! I like the Steakhouse at Harrah's, which is the perect spot to start if you're going to head down to the Pool at Harrah's afterwards -- it's a club set up around a pool (it works -- trust me). Or you could take a short cab ride over to the Borgata and eat at one of their many many restaurants -- then follow that up by a trip to the Gypsy Bar, mixx or mur.mur (the Borgata's in-house clubs).

        If you do want to take a cab over to the Boardwalk area, you could have a lovely dinner at Sonsie in the Pier at Caesar's, or, as MattinNJ suggested, Cuba Libre or Carmine's in the Tropicana. I was at Adam Good Sports Bar on Saturday -- also at the Trop -- and saw about 5 bachelorette parties there.

        I wrote a book about the Jersey shore area (downtheshorewithjen.blogspot.com), and I'm planning a bachelorette party in Atlantic City for my future sister-in-law, so feel free to ask me anything more specific.

        Good luck!

          I had my bachelorette party in AC with about 25 girls! Boy did we have a BLAST! We had dinner at Carmines at a recomendation of one of my bridesmaids because she went there for a different bachelorette party months ago. It was awsome-I think the men servers secretly love it when us girls come in and celbrate one girls last night of freedom:) THe food was fantastic and the wine was perfect to kick off our night. I highly recomend Carmines for a big group of girls because it is family sytle- so we all shared, but didnt overindulge which was good because we went out dancing!

            Carmine's certainly is something we will keep in mind! Sounds like a great time!

            MrsDewey, where did you all go dancing, stay etc? Any tips?
