There’s no shortage of thrills in Atlantic City!
Skip the chain restaurants and eat where the locals do during your time in Atlantic City. The legendary White House Sub Shop is a local, no-frills sub sandwich shop serving sandwiches since 1946, and the locally owned Café 2825 uses fresh, seasonal ingredients to create Italian favorites and Sicilian specialties.
If you prefer a meal cooked by a celebrity chef, check out Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill, inside Caesar’s Atlantic City, for an authentic British pub dining experience. James Beard Award winner Michael Symon’s Angeline is the newest addition at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa that serves Italian cuisine with the signature dish being Mom’s Lasagne.
Get your seafood fix with the day’s fresh catch at Dock’s Oyster House, owned by the same family for four generations. And visit its sister restaurant, Knife & Fork Inn, which has been a local staple since 1912.
For casual dining, eat at Wingcraft Kitchen & Beer Bar or the Vagabond Kitchen & Tap House— complete with a variety of beers on tap. There’s something for everyone at The Quarter inside the Tropicana, including P.F. Changs, the Palm Restaurant, Cuba Libre, Carmines and more.
Get Some Rest!
There’s no shortage of places to call home here. At Harrah’s Atlantic City, visit the pool during the day and come back at night when it transforms into a nightclub. The Resorts Casino Hotel puts you only steps from the boardwalk and the beach, and at Bally’s Atlantic City, you’ll experience upscale dining, nightlife and a world-class spa.
The Golden Nugget, Atlantic City overlooks the marina and has 24-hour room service along with a world-class spa. Stay at Tropicana Casino & Resort, where you’ll be in the middle of the action and steps away from the boardwalk and a short walk to Boardwalk Hall.
For non-casino accommodations, visit The Claridge. Located along the boardwalk, the hotel is known to be one of the area’s last remaining architectural masterpieces from the boardwalk empire era. The nearby Showboat Hotel is the area’s largest non-casino hotel with 827 rooms and oceanfront views.
