Good food, great sunset view

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... read more

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

I had the fish and chips and thought it was pretty good. The calamari appetizer was also pretty yummy as well. The service, however, was pretty bland and almost kind of awkward? It was good food, and a great view. Just not the happiest or most communicative or servers.

We had dinner at Dutchman's and enjoyed it very much. Great views of Morro Bay and of course the rock from the large windows. I particularly liked the crab cakes, but everything was good. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly.

Great to sit on the waterside terrace with a beer watching to the seals and listening to their song...

After reading some of the bad reviews below, I can only say that I had a good experience at Dutchman's, and I would not hesitate to go back to see if I could replicate it with some other dish. I had the cioppino, which is a kind of tomato bisque that includes all sorts of little sea creatures and parts... More

We usually pop into Dutchman's Seafood House for Happy Hour, which is very good. But this time we had our anniversary dinner there. It was delicious. I had sand dabs with lemon caper sauce-yum. So tender and tasty. My husband had petrale sole, which he also said was excellent. We will return.

We went in for a midafternoon snack. The server was nice and very informative. We had one of the best fish and chips ever, and was ample of it for both of us. Enough to have some to take out for the birds.
