We love the appetizers, Happy Hour, Clam Chowder, Shrimp Louie, Garlic Bread and everything we have had over the years. The staff is very well trained and Dan is a wonderful Host and Paul the owner is often there making sure everyone is getting good service and food. This is a great place for dates, business meetings and family parties.

The food was good, but not super great for the price. The fish in the Fish and Chips was very light and seemed fresh, however it was quite greasy. I've had lots of great ungreasy F&C in other locations, so I know it can be better. The place was a bit pricy, but given the location, was worth it. We... More

Dinner time, and we walked up and down Embarcadero for seafood. We chose this restaurant at the end mainly because we had discounts from the hotel we stayed in, and it looked nice. I enjoyed the view of course, and both my husband and I enjoyed our main dishes. I had their special of the day, which was sea bass,... More

The Dutchman's Seafood House is a nice restaurant at the quayside of Morro Bay. While driving from Los Angeles to Carmel we got hungry and stopped in Morro Bay, where we found this seafood restaurant. The food there was really good just as the service was, too! After we ate we went out on the terrace/balcony of the restaurant. There... More

I was looking for dinner, and walked up and down the boardwalk. Most of the menu's looked unappetizing to me. I was a bit surprised how many places included hamburgers prominently, as one would think seafood would be on the mind of those visiting the Pacific Ocean coast. The Dutchman had sand dabs on their menu, which are a favorite... More

We had eaten here in the past and found it really good. We ate here twice on this weekend trip to Morro Bay and love it again. Best fish and chips on the bay and we both had that Friday night. I tried the seafood we returned Saturday and it too was great.

I had the fried calamari dish and I loved it. The views are wonderful and staff attentive. Good beer selection. I would come back again. The only hiccup is the fried scallop dish. I did not care for it.
