We went here on a "cold" drizzly day for happy hour. Excellent! Had some domestic beers (3.00), crab stuffed jalapeños (4.00), and cheesy crab balls (5.00). All of these were excellent. The bartender was fabulous! This is the best time to go-absolutely no-body here!

Stopped in while waiting on friends for New Years' Eve. We had a great view of the Bay and the food was wonderful and a fair price. I loved the crab bisque

This is my favorite restaurant on the Kemah Boardwalk. You get the good quality seafood without pay the high prices. They have the best burgers on the boardwalk, with really good buns. Anywhere that you sit on the patio you get a water view they also have a lounge area outside side that has a fireplace for colder weather. The... More

Top notch spot in Kemah to listen to the music going on out in the main area without having to deal with the crowds. This is our very favorite Rock the Dock or Tribute Band Night place to go. The outside seating is plentiful, and comfortable, and the servers are always quick to check on you to make sure your... More

It's seaside so I assume the seafood is good! However, the burger, because I don't eat seafood, was the worst burger I've ever had! The bun was good, fries average and meat tasted like it had bad freezer burn a year past the date advised to serve humans! The service was good and the place was nice.

My wife and I stopped by the Flying Dutchman for lunch prior to an afternoon of sailing in Galveston Bay. We were close to the first customers of the day. We each started with a Bloody Mary; don't know what mix was used, but it needs work! The Oysters on Half Shell were small and tasted fishy, despite our server's... More

I want to prefice that our waiter was great and very nice and that the oysters we had were delicious. However, I ordered the Rainbow trout and it was BAD. My family and I sat out on the patio by the water and, when I took my first bite, I thought it smelled bad. I asked my husband to smell... More

A very busy place, high noise level. We visited as part of a large group (48), so we were advised to pre order, which we all did. However after sitting at our tables, they had printed menus for us and we had to order again. For the appetisers they brought out large platters for us to share, they were not... More
