One of my Favorite Places To Eat

I have been going to the Dutchman for many years. I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. It also has great views of the boats passing by.

My husband and I were greeted by the host and we told him that we were going to sit at the bar. He smiled and we walked on and made ourselves at home. We waited, waited, and waited. Looked at the host, he smiled. At least 5 wait staff walked by, nothing. I think a manager, nothing. 8-10 minutes was... More

My husband and I did a day trip to Kemah Boardwalk. I looked online for a seafood restaurant on the boardwalk and decided to go to the "Flying Dutchman". We decided to sit outside (it was warm and they didn't have any cooling system like the other restaurants). We ordered a margarita on the rocks and the prickly pear Maggie.... More

So many times you go on vacation to a tourist destination & the food leaves little to be desired. But not at the Flying Dutchman! Service, food, specialty drinks, dessert, atmosphere overlooking Galveston Bay all get five stars from me!

The food was good and so was the service. Our server was quick and knowledgeable. Be careful of the seagulls if you are dinning outside!

Didn't get off to a good start (wait time of 45 min and they said they called us, but had written down the wrong pager number by our name) And didn't have a good end (waited over 15 min for the bill after waiting a good amount of time for our food and didn't want to miss the fireworks)....BUT..the in-between...

New menu-lighter choices. I had mahi fish tacos that were some of the best I have ever had. One friend had the special: steak sandwich-ate every bite. Son had steamed clams that were cooked perfectly. Other friend had fish & chips. Really light & tasty batter. Owner came by to check on everything. Will definitely go back
