Was recommended to come here by the staff at our Hilton Hotel and we were not disappointed. Arrived for the happy hour at around 5.30p.m. which was very good value for money and then proceeded to have dinner. Service was very attentive without being over the top and always with a smile and helpful suggestions. My husband and I ordered... More

We stayed close by the night before a cruise and decided to visit the area. We stopped by Landrys but it was an hour wait so decided to walk around. We came across The Flying Dutchman and decided to give it a shot. No wait and were greeted by friendly staff. Mai Tai and Sunset cocktails were delicious and reasonably... More

Party of two. Oysters on the half shell were good. Oysters Bienville were very good. My husband ordered fried oysters they were poorly prepared. More breading than oysters. Atmosphere good. Good waitstaff. He realized husband was not satisfied with entree and removed them from bill.

Too much breading in the crab cakes. The shrimp were nothing to write home about. French fries pretty tasty. Not my 1st choice in Kemah!

The special on the day that I went was Mahi Mahi, and it was to die for!! It was so tender and moist with crab stuffing and drizzled with a light sauce that made the whole dish come together. I loved the way it was prepared - not dried out or tough like I've had at other restaurants. For desert... More

We were in Kemah with the whole family for a few days. Chose the Flying Dutchman because the menu looks so good. The fresh oysters was my draw to going. They didn't disappoint me at all. I had the fisherman's platter and loved it. Everything was so fresh and hot. I don't think anyone in our party of 11 had... More

We were staying at the Boardwalk Inn right outside the door the the Flying Dutchman and decided to have dinner there with two other couples. We originally picked it for convenience but the food and service was top notch. It's off season and it wasn't crowded and I'm sure that allowed our server to spend more time taking care of... More

If you're near Kehma, League City, Webster area, this Boardwalk has some nice options for dinner. FD serves great seafood, shrimp, snapper, calamares and some good beers.
