Dining With A View In Atlantic City

(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ)  — Thanks to its location on a band of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Absecon Inlet, Atlantic City is surrounded by water. Restaurateurs have ample opportunity to capitalize on this asset by designing dining rooms and decks to maximize the “ooh” factor of the resort city’s priceless views. And with dining options from luxury to casual there is a restaurant with an ocean view to suit every taste. Here is a sample of options inside the casinos and around town.

Inside the Casinos

·       Capriccio: One of the most acclaimed and highly regarded fine-dining establishments in Atlantic City for decades, Capriccio at Resorts is a Zagat-rated AC institution for Italian-food lovers. One of the best Sunday brunches in the city (9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.) is also offered. Resorts Casino Hotel

·       Chart House Atlantic City: Though all of the nautically themed seafood chain’s national locations perch atop or alongside a body of water, this is the only link that enjoys a “holy mackerel” view of the Farley Marina and the bay beyond. Golden Nugget Atlantic City

·       The Deck: Every Friday around sundown during the spring and summer, this is the place to find a jovial legion of devoted and longtime regulars, from boaters and locals to overnight visitors to the Golden Nugget. And why not? Set along the Farley Marina, The Deck merrily toasts the sunset with live classic rock bands, drink specials and can’t miss Old Bay crab dip. Golden Nugget Atlantic City

·       Dos Caminos: One of the best Mexican restaurants in Atlantic City, Dos Caminos is the home of killer margaritas, homemade guacamole and Mexican City-style quesadillas and gorgeous bay views. The high-energy atmosphere allows one to let loose while taking in some excellent nosh. Tequila aficionados: Heaven awaits! Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

·       FIN: This fine-dining seafood destination doesn’t skimp on the view. At this locavore establishment, every table enjoys a sightline to the ocean many stories below. Tropicana Casino & Resort

·       Guy Fieri’s Chophouse: The Food Network star has brought his steakhouse concept to Atlantic City with Guy Fieri’s Chophouse, located at Bally’s. Overlooking the beach and Boardwalk, the restaurant features Fieri’s signature dishes with a NJ flair including Jersey Shore Clams Casino and the Cape May Fried Flounder. Flavor is key at this relaxed yet extravagant venue. Bally’s Atlantic City

·       Landshark Bar & Grill: Everything about Jimmy Buffet’s bar and grill reflects his carefree attitude, including the fact that as a restaurant built out onto the beach, views of the ocean and horizon surround it on three of four sides. It’s the only year-round beach bar in AC! Resorts Casino Hotel

·       Nero’s Italian Steakhouse: It’s hard to rank the most buzz-worthy draw at the newly expanded and upgraded Nero’s: the prime grade steaks; delicious pastas; fresh seafood selection; or the backdrop to it all — the ocean view lining much of the wall space. Caesars Atlantic City

·       Poolside at The Water Club: For a water view in an indoor oasis the pool at The Water Club at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa is a luscious option. An exclusive menu by the hotel’s Culinary Lifestyle Consultant, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian offers specialty dining while lounging poolside. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

·       Robert’s Rooftop at Scores: Enjoy beautiful ocean views from high above the Boardwalk while savoring select dishes from the menu of Robert’s Steakhouse. Want to take a walk on the wild side? Venture inside for the gentlemen’s club entertainment offered by Scores. Trump Taj Mahal

·       Royal Albert Palace: Feast like a maharaja on authentic Indian cuisine while enjoying the views of the Boardwalk and beach. Enjoy chicken makahni, shrimp vindaloo, chicken curry and other traditional favorites. Vegan and vegetarian options are plentiful and diners can request the level of spice that suits their tastes. Trump Taj Mahal


Around Town

·       Back Bay Ale House: Craft beers and oversized margaritas pair better with seafood, sandwiches and breakfast when they’re consumed on an enclosable porch overlooking a marina and part of the AC skyline. Historic Gardner's Basin

·       Blue Water Grille: With windows that stretch from floor to ceiling, there’s almost no place in the dining room or at the bar that doesn’t boast a panoramic view of the Absecon Inlet and Brigantine Beach. Though the restaurant resides in the Flagship building of the FantaSea Resorts, a vacation condo building, property managers welcome the public for contemporary American breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Flagship

·       Dining on the Fifth: Five stories below The Chelsea Hotel’s supper club lies the ocean, which brings pleasant distraction to diners when the pianist playing the white grand piano in the 1920’s themed restaurant takes a break. The Chelsea

·       Souzai Sushi & Sake: Serving up some of the best sushi and sashimi in town, with a bar team that knows its sake — Souzai is a casual spot located directly across from Phillips Seafood on the third level of the Pier Shops at Caesars. Graceful ocean views accompany happy-hour cocktails or sushi specials, as well as unforgettable lunch and dinner items. The Pier Shops at Caesars

·       The Twenties: Dine in an historic landmark that served legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Nucky Johnson, Princess Grace of Monaco, John F. Kennedy and Frank Sinatra. And don’t miss the 6th floor view of Brighton Park in front of The Claridge Hotel and the Boardwalk and beach beyond. The Claridge Hotel

·       Vagabond Kitchen & Tap House: One of the city’s original craft beer draught lists can be sampled at the low-key and family-friendly bar and restaurant overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.

·       Wonder Bar: Tucked into the Intracoastal Waterway, Wonder Bar’s low-lying tiki bar provides most of the action. Locals love the fact that this AC staple serves food until 6am in the summer. Visitors appreciate the convenient location, ample parking and boat docks for water access. In the winter months enjoy the more formal Sunset Room with floor-to-ceiling bayfront windows.

The 27th Annual Blackwood Pumpkin Festival
Now that summer is officially in the rearview mirror – even with an occasional warm-weather day – the time has come for thoughts to turn to things autumnal. That could mean painting a pumpkin or constructing a scarecrow for Halloween decorating. It might be checking out a craft fair for an early start on holiday shopping. It could involve an outdoor spot with live entertainment to see and hear without slathering on high-number sunscreen. Or maybe it’s just taking in an activity that’s fun for the whole gang, even the four-legged ones.
