What to Eat in Atlantic City

Atlantic City is primarily a resort town and because of its powerhouse casinos and hotels, many visitors typically eat there. Travelers will find plenty of buffets in addition to restaurants established by celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck and Geoffrey Zakarian in the various resorts in town. The Atlantic City Boardwalk also has some tasty casual eats like fresh funnel cakes, creamy fudge, salty french fries and an AC staple, saltwater taffy.

There are some dining spots located outside the casinos and boardwalk, though. And thanks to AC's coastal location, there's plenty of seafood on the menu at those joints. Diners cite Dock's Oyster House as an eatery where you can get fresh seafood from the raw bar, classic chowders and entrees like stuffed flounder. Recent visitors also suggested a visit to Chef Vola's for authentic and exceptionally tasty Italian fare at reasonable prices.
