Best Atlantic City Restaurants

One of the restaurants that we enjoyed while in Atlantic city was the Bungalow Restaurant on the boardwalk. The picture on the left shows the restaurant as seen from the boardwalk. This particular restaurant is probably not one of the best Atlantic city restaurants in the area, however we spent one warm September morning having breakfast at this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Sitting under umbrellas on director chairs with white table clothes with excellent service is my idea of a nice breakfast outside with the beach in the distance and the boardwalk just outside the perimeter of the restaurant. The prices were quite reasonable. We paid $5.99 for breakfast which included two eggs, hash browns and bacon with toast. Coffee was a bit expensive at $3.00, however they did a good job of keeping our cups full of coffee.

The service was attentive, but not over powering. All in all, a definite place to have breakfast. We did not try any other meals there during the day, however we would expect similar service and quality. The Bungalow restaurant is located near the Tropicana Casino if you are looking for it. You cannot miss it, with the white tablecloths and umbrellas. They also have an inside area where you can also dine during inclement weather.

Other Atlantic City Restaurants

All of the casinos have a variety of restaurants ranging from fine dining to coffee shops. Prices will be a bit higher in these restaurants since this is one way the hotels make their money, however the portions are so large that the meals can be shared and you may still have food left over unless you are a really big eater.

For example we went to the SIX restaurant in Bally’s. For $29.99, you can have unlimited steak and crab legs, with pasta, salad and buns. We would have been satisfied with the crab legs, steak and salad; however the seafood pasta was over the top. They brought this bowl of pasta which really was enough for two people by itself. We focused on the steak and especially the crab legs since this was the reason we went there in the first place.

The crab legs were excellent, however they are not pre-cracked or split and this makes it more difficult to open them. We have been to other restaurants were the legs are already split and this totally enhances the removal of the crab meat. The steaks were ok, a bit overdone and thin, but tasty. Service was also quite acceptable. Although we enjoyed it very much, we probably would not go back due to the issue with the crab legs.

Additional Restaurants

Another restaurant we grabbed a quick dinner in was the Breadsticks restaurant in the Resort Casino. It is also located inside close to the boardwalk with windows looking out onto the boardwalk. We were not looking for a large meal and we ordered a corn chowder soup and salad. The waiter suggested that we split these items and he brought two small bowls of soup and two small plates of salad.

It was perfect for us and the soup was truly excellent. I recommend you try this soup anytime you visit the Resorts casino if it is on the menu. We ordered a seafood linguine to share as well and between the two of us could not finish it. This is a great way to save a bit of money and to keep from gaining weight as well while on vacation.

We also ate at the Resorts Hotel Buffet. The only bad thing about this was that we stood in line for 45 minutes before we were seated. The food was great, the crab legs were very good, but not split as we mentioned before. The restaurant was very crowded and noisy. We enjoyed it very much, but again probably would not go back, preferring to try some other location.

While these restaurants would not be considered some of the best Atlantic City restaurants, they did have great food and the prices were not too bad particularly if you can split the meals. Of course this cannot be done if you are dining in a buffet style of restaurant. Let us know if you have visited other restaurants in the area and what you thought of them.
