Always a memorable meal at the Dutchman's

One of the best happy hours to watch the sun set in Morro Bay and have dinner. Fresh local oysters for $1 and amazing fish tacos can't be beat.

Wonderful fish and chips dinner, great view of the bay. We drive from the central valley just to eat there.

Went for lunch while wandering around central CA. The seafood was excellent and the view of the bay was as good as it gets. Ellie our server was very friendly, we truly enjoyed our visit.

Another excellent dinner at Dutchman's. I had a yummy shrimp louie salad-lots of shrimp. My husband had chicken fetuccine alfredo-also very good. We love this place and wish we lived closer so we could come more often. Travis the bartender is very nice and we always enjoy seeing him when we are in town.

My wife & I enjoyed a wonderful meal with salmon for me and fish tacos for her. Of all things, the rice served with the fish, usually a throw away item, was delicious! We inquired and were told about how the rice and beans are treated with as much care as the entrée. The bar was fabulous! The bartender was... More

We celebrated our 20th anniversary here. Dutchman's offers a fantastic view. If you are looking for sunset dining on the coast, you'll enjoy this spot.

Nice setting on the water and we timed it for a beautiful sunset. Ordered fish and chips, shrimp and chips, and a roasted chicken, all of which were quite good. Our waitress was also fine, and when we left, I had forgotten my wallet on the table which was returned to me immediately! Quite nice. Would definitely return.

I ordered the fish and chips. Nice and crisp, not too greasy. You get 3 small pieces of fish, plenty for me but it would be not enough for others. The Mahi Mahi tacos are fantastic. Loaded with fish and great toppings. Almost too big to pick up and eat. I ordered a drink fro the bar, a bit pricy... More
