The second most active part of Atlantic City, the Marina District is a strip where Harrah’s, the Golden Nugget and The Belagio hotels are located. The lively environment also features restaurants in and around its central areas. Read ahead for our guide to the best restaurants in the Marina District of Atlantic City.
The basement BYO, located in a row home, might always be crowded but it’s worth it to try and get a reservation here. The friendly, but secluded atmosphere and home-style Italian dishes make it unmissable. Try the shrimp fettuccine and the cheesy, mouth-watering veal Parmigiana is raved about here. The banana cream pie with Oreo crust is a favorite for dessert, but the almond gelato is heavenly as well. It’s cash only.

Dock’s Oyster House
While in this beach front party town, visitors must stop at Dock’s Oyster House for freshly shucked East Coast oysters topped with house made cocktail sauce or cider mignonette. Inside, you’ll find dark wood and white tablecloths. Look through their chop house options for the 26oz ribeye and the rack of lamb. From their seafood menu, try their flounder topped with crab or their filet-style lobster tail with ‘beef and reef’ combo that’s been served since 1897.

Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse
Located inside The Golden Nugget Hotel, Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse is a branch of the famous NY steakhouse. The same modern, red-lit interior is found inside, but it’s made even better knowing you’re eating in a playground of excess. Choose from their 32oz prime bone-in Porterhouse or Szechuan pepper-crusted tuna, or you could go with the prix-fixe menu. There’s also always a slew of specials on hand.

The Trump Taj Mahal offers plenty of dining options, but one sure to take the cake is Robert’s Steakhouse. The menu boasts the traditional beef fare with sumptuous rib eye steaks. along with classic sauces like the borderlaise and classic bearnaise. They offer live music on Saturday evenings. The refinement is a nice juxtaposition to when you’re trashy and drunk at the casino later.
