18 Atlantic City Restaurants With Waterfront Views

Restaurateurs have ample opportunity to capitalize on this asset by designing dining rooms and decks to maximize the “ooh” factor of the resort city’s priceless views. And with dining options from luxury to casual there is a restaurant with an ocean view to suit every taste. Here is a sample of options inside the casinos and around town.
