Expensive and worth it. We go for special occasions. They also participate in restaurant week which is a perfect time to try them if you've never been. Best filet mignon I've ever had. Make sure you get the blue cheese bechamel. You're welcome

This is a review of the Happy Hour at the Knife and Fork. I've been twice in recent weeks, so I want to share my experiences. First, know that the bar opens at 4 PM for Happy Hour. If you intend to go, then you should be there not later than 4 PM, because the bar is not large and... More

A real mix bag. After all of these years we went to the Knife and Fork. We ate on the first floor - and would advise those to ask for the second floor. The restaurant on the outside is charming, inside it is really just your basic inn. The service was great, real responsive and friendly. We opened with soups... More

This restaurant is a landmark .....one of the oldest and most historically service dining establishments in Atlantic City since 1912. It has an impressive wine list, as well as signature cocktails. There are three floors... first floor is a bar and second has a small private room and large dining area. And the third floor has approximately ten tables. I... More

I met friends for the weekend and we stopped here first. What a nice place! The bar is beautiful and the appetizers are half price during happy hour. We all chose something different and everything was delicious. I would definitely recommend for happy hour.

We've been planning to here for over a year. By coincidence it was located a few blocks away from the Carisbrooke Inn bed and breakfast. It was so impromptu we didn't make reservations. It was packed on a 20 degree night. A table wouldn't be available for 2 hours, so with their suggestion, we ate at the bar. Service was... More

My Dad dined here way back when he was in the Merchant Marines! This is an AC Landmark. The Restaurant is beautiful and the Food and Service are pure Excellence. There is parking, but took an Uber from the Casino - simple and very inexpensive. The steak is perfect. I had the surf and turf - while I love a... More

Went for AC restaurant week 2017. Free Valet parking, in AC, you must be kidding. The history is amazing. Old photos of AC and the restaurant going back to early 1900's. Ask for the tour (Not advertized) where they take you around and show all the prohibition hideouts. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the Seafood Risotto and Filet, both... More
