The Doughertys of Margate are opening a steak house and raw bar at Resorts Casino Hotel.

ATLANTIC CITY – Resorts Casino Hotel recently announced a partnership with noted restaurateurs, the Dougherty family of Margate.

The Doughertys have been a staple in Atlantic City’s restaurant industry for more 120 years and currently operate Dock’s Oyster House and The Knife & Fork Inn. In this partnership with Resorts, they will welcome a new dining concept that features a classic steakhouse, raw bar and live entertainment at the former Gallagher’s Steak House & Burger Bar location in the hotel.

“This concept will provide a dining experience to our valued guests that is very unique from what we currently offer and will be a perfect addition to Resorts’ winning amenities,” Resorts President and CEO Mark Giannantonio said. “The Dougherty family is known for their commitment to quality and service and operate under the highest standards. Their strong ties in the community and long history in Atlantic City are perfect complements to Resorts, itself one of the most historic properties in the city. We could not be happier to partner with such a well-respected restaurateur and look forward to opening in the spring of 2021.”

“We are excited to embark on this project with Resorts,” Frank Dougherty said. “Resorts shares our commitment to preserving the history and ensuring the success of Atlantic City, and we are looking forward to a successful partnership on this new dining concept.”
