We’re revisiting the best lobster dishes available in the Atlantic City - Atlantic County, New Jersey area.

Our listeners, readers, family foodies and friends were wonderful and previously sent us their favorite lobster dishes.

We’ve received a bunch of great ones that we are sharing with you in this report.

There is just one qualifier. To qualify for inclusion in this review, the meal must include a lobster ingredient.

Originally introduced to me by my Daughter, Kristin Hurley Baker … without question, my favorite seafood meal of all-time is prepared by Steve & Cookies by The Bay in Margate, New Jersey.

Below is a photograph of it:

The above is called Seafood Pan Roast. 

It may be the most perfect seafood meal ever made.

It has everything … balance … proportion … it includes:

A Lobster Tail, 2 huge shrimp, 2 scallops and a nice portion of jumbo lump crab meat.

It is a spectacular meal and consistently prepared each and every time.

Capriccio Italian Restaurant at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City is the # 1 casino restaurant in America for the past 3 years and 4 out of the past 5 years … as selected by USA Today 10Best Readers Choice Awards.

Vic & Anthony’s General Manager Sal Spena describes them as “18 ounce cold water Australian Lobster Tails.”

I have had the privilege to sample the above. The taste and texture was sheer perfection.

“Steve and Cookies has an awesome chilled seafood platter that includes lobster tail. The entirety of the dish, including the sauces, is what makes it amazing. I wish they would put that on their regular menu,” wrote Mike Man.

Steve and Cookies makes it three different lobster dishes with Anthony Phillips writing us, “Steve and Cookies French fried cold water lobster tail by a mile.”

The Dougherty Family also makes our lobster list twice as:

Scott Stetzer submitted The (Lobster) Thermidor at The Knife and Fork, saying that it “is always special!”

Make that three times for The Dougherty Family, too … as Diane Scull Conover selected the Linwood Country Club Whole Lobster Cocktail. “Amazing.”

Lauren Hurley Lauriello, “Really enjoys the butter poached lobster risotto from Hell's Kitchen” at Caesars Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City.

It is comprised of:

Butter poached lobster tail, truffle risotto and crispy onions.

Below, is Lauren’s photo of this iconic meal:

Karen Hurley McDonald and Don P. Hurley selected The Lobster Roll at The Water Dog Smoke House in Ventnor, New Jersey.

It is also my favorite lobster roll if all-time. It’s perfect.

Here it is:

That’s a whole Maine lobster in the perfect lobster roll sandwich pictured above.

The Water Dog Smoke House owner Steve Marchel provided us with a great lobster roll sandwich tutorial:

"A Connecticut Style Lobster Roll, which is poached in warm butter, as opposed to a Maine Roll which is dressed with seasoned mayo. No Mayo, No Fillers. Just knuckle, claw AND tail meat. All served in a top-cut toasted roll served with potato salad and our tarragon aioli on the side,” said Marchel.

Marchel’s other establishment, “Betty’s Seafood Shack” offers the Maine style lobster roll. Betty’s is now closed for the off season … The Water Dog is open year-round.

FUN FACT: The very first lobster roll was created in 1929 by Perry's, located in Milford, Connecticut.

PJ BUCKETS of Ventnor and Ocean City also make our lobster list with their:

New England Family Size Boil.

It looks wonderful … including:

Lobster Tails, Large Shrimp, Clams and Corn. Here it is below:

Last, but, not least … Tom Piotrowski submits:

The Golden Pyramid in Mays Landing, New Jersey.

"Don't sleep on Chef Mohammed Baghat's seafood creations at the Golden Pyramid. His stuffed Salmon with Lobster Saffron sauce, Egyptian Flounder, Spanish Seafood Paella! If you know - you know," wrote Piotrowski.

Here it is below:
