Help! Going to Atlantic City, NJ

I have 3 nights in Atlantic City with my husband. What are some local, do not miss restaurants? I'm not big on chain restaurants and not looking for sandwich shops. Would love to hear ideas.

  1. Our favorites are Dock's Oyster House in town, for seafood, Bobby Flay's at Borgata for steaks and Wolfgang Pucks at Borgata for dining at the bar.

    Here's a couple recent threads to get you started:

    2405 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

    1. Tony's Baltimore Grill for old school AC southern italain but most of for great pizza in an wooden booth type setting
      do not miss this great food and easy prices and definitely a local type of place

      2800 Atlantic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

      1. Thanks for the ideas. They are great. No one mentions Knife and Fork Inn. What do you think about this place?

          We haven't dined there, but it receives mostly good reviews here. Our steak experience in AC has been at Bobby Flays, Old Homestead, Palm, Mortons and Chelsea Prime - listed in order of our preference.

          Here's a recent thread that has a lot of discussion on the Knife & Fork.

        2. Best food I've ever had in AC was at Little Saigon. There is some discussion in the following thread:

          2801 Arctic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

            +1 for Little Saigon, Call ahead for a table if you're going for dinner on a weekend.

          2. I know you asked for no sandwich spots, but if you haven't been, you should go to White House for hoagies, you can't get bread like that anywhere else (well maybe in Margate).
