Good fish restaurant

It's a nice restaurant with supposedly a nice view. Unfortunately I couldn't see the view as it was already dark. The food was good. I had a cup of chowder and swordfish, both the chowder and swordfish were really good. Can definitely recommend going there, but it is nothing too fancy though.

We went with a large group and the server was outstanding -- very patient and accommodating. The food was decent, nothing spectacular but the portion size was large and satisfying. This would be a good restaurant to bring children.

Went here on a bit of a slow night in January so very pleased to find somewhere open at 7.30 for dinner. The waiter was very helpful and the menu pretty extensive. When the orders came they were well presented and tasty. The wine list was reasonable for the area and the final bill not too horrific

We meet a good friend at Dutchman's for dinner. It was based on a recommendation from one of the locals. Beautiful location, over looking the local harbor. Sea food was great. The Cioppino was one the best that I've had in a long time.

We went to Dutchman's for my birthday dinner-which we have done a couple of other times, too. I know I'm in a rut, but I always get the sand dabs. They are amazing. So delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the fish and shrimp combo. Pre dinner we as usual enjoyed a cocktail from wonderful Travis, a terrific bartender. Always nice... More

We went here for dinner. Unfortunate, because it is right on the water and certainly must have a beautiful view of the marina and the water. The food is terrific.

We arrived on a chilly evening smack at peak dinner rush. Kind hostess escorted us to the bar area with menus to peruse until a table opened up. When seated after a short wait, our waitress, though quite busy, patiently answered our questions. Our food came quicker than expected and was DELICIOUS. Would definitely visit again and recommend.
