Restaurant Description
You don't survive in Atlantic City for nearly 120 years without keeping up with the times, including some major renovations every few decades or so. In 1945, the second generation of Dougherty's enlarged the restaurant to 80 seats. Fifteen years later, the third generation purchased a liquor license for the first time, expanded the dining room again, and installed a completely modern kitchen. After another decade passed, a small cocktail lounge was added, and in 2001 a team of third and fourth generation Dougherty's revamped the dining room and bar, adding a raw bar that has become a local hot spot.

Now in 2015, the kitchen is no longer modern, the bar and raw bar are too small to accommodate our guests, and the dining room is ready for another overhaul. The current project will provide what our loyal customers have been requesting for years—more space—by taking over a portion of the existing parking lot for a 3-story addition. The bar will be expanded to encompass most of the current dining room and will of course include a raw bar and the beloved piano bar. Seating capacity will double with dining on two floors, including a private dining room on the second level. The project also provides what our chef has been asking for—a new, much larger, and thoroughly modern kitchen! The interior will continue to blend the classic oyster bar feel with the upscale dining and maritime touches that Dock's fans have enjoyed over the years.
