Resorts Casino Hotel is pleased to announce Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar is officially open! The new restaurant is owned and operated by Atlantic City restaurateurs, the Dougherty family, a staple in the local restaurant industry for over 120 years. The Dougherty family has become synonymous with fine dining in Atlantic City. In 1987, Harry “Call Me Dock” Dougherty opened Dock’s Oyster House with a vision of a fine neighborhood restaurant and a commitment to quality and service. That vision and commitment have allowed four generations of Doughertys to flourish in the restaurant industry, growing the brand to include the iconic Knife & Fork Inn, Harry’s Oyster Bar, and Linwood Country Club.
“Resorts Casino Hotel is delighted to be in this partnership with the Dougherty family, and to celebrate the opening of Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar,” said Mark Giannantonio, President and CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel. “As two historic Atlantic City staples with decades of fine dining experience come together, we are excited to offer our guests a new dining concept that includes an enticing menu and energizing live entertainment. Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar is a perfect complement to our other award-winning fine dining offerings.”
“We are excited to announce the opening of Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar in the historic Resorts Casino Hotel,” said Frank Dougherty. “The space has been beautifully renovated in classic steakhouse style with modern touches and the new menu allows steaks and chops to share the spotlight with an expansive raw bar and carefully curated wine list. We are happy to be included in the amenities Resorts offers to its guests and the dining public, especially as COVID restrictions begin to ease, and we look forward to an amazing summer.”
In addition to the variety of delicious seafood options, the Doughertys’ restaurants are known for, the menu at Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar includes filet mignon, NY strip, porterhouse, and other select cuts of steak. The menu will also include veal Milanese, lamb chops, and prime rib. Guests can top off their favorite steaks and chops with options like a delicious crab Oscar, foie gras butter and black truffle butter. While guests can currently access all of Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar’s mouthwatering menu items in one space, a separate raw bar will officially open right across from the steakhouse in June 2021. The raw bar will exclusively offer seafood items, along with a casual lunch menu that includes sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
Dougherty’s Steakhouse and Raw Bar is located on the dining level of Resorts Casino Hotel. Hours of operation are 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm on Sunday through Thursday and 4:00 pm to 9:30 pm on Friday and Saturday. Guests can book reservations via Resy.com, via doughertyssteak.com, or by calling 609-340-6555.
