Parking directions/tips (if necessary):

WE HAVE FREE PARKING!!! Our lot is directly behind the bar.  Driving down Atlantic, pass the bar and take your next right at the light onto Boston Ave, then make your first right past PNC bank into our lot.  Lot is part of the former Hilton property.  Please do not park in PNC bank's lot or Stockton’s lot.  Additionally, there are 60 metered spots surrounding O'Donnell park on Albany, Ventnor, & Atlantic Avenues.


Tell us a little about yourself (and please include a picture)?

The newest addition to the Good Dog family, Good Dog Bar Atlantic City, continues our long-standing tradition of good food, good drinks and good old-fashioned competition in our second-floor game room. With 5000 square feet located in a two story, fully renovated building, Good Dog Bar in Atlantic City is all about good times. Whether you’re an Atlantic City local, in for a weekend trip or convention, the friends you make at Good Dog will be good friends indeed. Good Dog Bar in America’s Playground—it’s a perfect fit.


What does your Company specialize in?  

Aside from our fun twist on gourmet bar fare and comfort foods, we’re all about good times!


What is the current reason one MUST come to your venue? 

We have the most laid-back atmosphere where you truly feel like you are a part of a family. Aside from our daily food and drink specials, we cater to everyone’s needs, be it discounts for military members and members of the restaurant industry, guests with dietary restrictions or food allergies, the choice for indoor or outdoor dining, the list goes on and on. We’re also just a quick 4 block walk from the Boardwalk, so we’re a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the beach.


What is your secret favorite that the crowds have yet to discover? 

Our Bahn Mi Sandwiches is phenomenal, with Pork Belly, Pickled Carrots, Daikon, Red Cabbage, Cucumbers, Miso Mayo, Sambal Oelek, Cilantro, and Jalapeños on a Long Roll. You event have the option to make it vegetarian with Crispy Tofu!


Do you have a signature product, service, dish or drink (if so, please include a picture and description)?

Although we carefully craft every menu item and drink, while it’s not a signature dish, it is a cool feature not many Venues in Atlantic City offer. We welcome both humans and four-legged friends. That’s right, dogs are welcome at our outdoor patio. We do have some rules though:

1. Dogs must be on a short leash, no longer than 6-feet, and secured.

2. Dogs, much like their owners, must be well behaved.

3. Dogs that are aggressive towards other dogs, patrons or staff will be asked to leave.

4. Dogs that are disturbing the peace on our patio by barking excessively or in any way

disturbing other guests will be asked to leave.

5. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs should they have an accident.

6. Dogs cannot enter the building at any time. Dogs may enter through the patio gate only.

7. Dog owners are always responsible and liable for the actions and behavior of their dogs.

8. Dog owners are responsible for ensuring your dog’s vaccinations are all up to date.

9. Never leave your dog unattended!


Why is your venue a necessary part of Atlantic City or County? 

At Good Dog Bar, we’re committed to being part of the community. It’s why when we’re not at our bar, you can often find us supporting other Atlantic City eateries, checking out the local Stockton campus and participating in the discussions about the future of Atlantic City. It’s also why we support community arts programs and local artists.


Would you like to highlight a star employee or staff member (if so, include a picture and reason or bio)?

We have two honorary staff members, Greta and Tito. Greta is a four-year-old lab/hound mix who, like her brother, loves snacks. While she’s willing to eat just about everything—from biscuits and bones to sweet potatoes and peanut butter—Greta’s very favorite snack is bananas. When she isn’t snacking, Greta loves to fetch, especially in the ocean. This girl is mad for water. Tito is a three-year-old pitbull/hound mix whose favorite space is the couch—any couch, inside or out—and his activity of choice is snuggling on said couch. In between snuggling sessions, Tito is super into snacking—it’s his second favorite pastime. Tito loves jerky, carrots, tomatoes, yogurt and watermelon, but his absolute favorite snack is a juicy pineapple.


Do you have any weekly specials or upcoming events?

We are all about the Specials! We offer daily specials like our Strawberry & Goat Cheese Salad, Chicken Tinga Tacos, NY Strip, and Chocolate Crème Brûlée. We also offer Happy Hour specials, Monday to Friday between 3-6pm featuring items like ½ Priced Draughts, $5 Mixed Drinks, $6 Wines, and $6-$10 Bar Snacks.


Please share any important information locals and visitors should know about:

Our private event space is available Sundays through Fridays. We do not book private events on Saturdays, unless you wish to buyout the venue. Our 2nd floor can host plated dinners for up to 30 guests, and 45 for a cocktail reception. If you combine both the 2nd and 3rd floors we can host a cocktail reception for up to 125 guests!
