Atlantic City Experience: Trip Report

Sure enough, Dock's Oyster House was a solid rec from this Board, and we had a wonderful]
dinner there last night. Service, food quality, atmosphere, menu variety all first rate, and
prices approprirate for that high quality level.

Maine clam chower with whole clams, made to order was unusually good, and very
different from other milk/cream based chowders. Diver scallop dish atop risotto with green snap peas was outstanding, as was the keylime pie. Dinner for 2, including 6 lovely oyster for me, was $103, including tax. Not bad.

And, we had two lunches just up Atlantic Ave, at Pho Sydney that hit the spot--a neighborhood
find, when Dock's turned out to be closed for lunch. Highly recommended.

The Atlantic City experience Living Social package, $105 for a great room at the Chelsea Hotel,
with $25 slot voucher plus $30 food voucher was a very good deal. Glad we made the trip
from Philly, and might even do it again next year.

  1. Thanks for the report back. I did not know about Pho Sydney, and any new Pho sightings are great news to me.

    1. So glad you made it to Dock's - thanks for the report back!

      1. Hi Bashful!!!

        We are planning a mini vacation to AC. We are going to stay at the Chelsea in the Luxe. Were you in the Luxe or the Annex? How was that???
