“Amazing Chowder - Eet Smakelijk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Found a hotel, now my lady & I needed some sustenance. Short walk to Embarcadero and , lo and behold, Dutchman's Seafood House. My lady, being from NL, and myself, having lived there, both agreed we had to go in. Got a great seat outside - sheltered from the wind by a glass wall and from the seagulls by an umbrella. Turns out is indeed run by a Dutchman whose parents moved to the SU when we was a boy. Meneer van Beurden was gracious enough to come out and talk to us for a few minutes - a little personal touch that goes a long way. We both had the chowder - phenomenally good as was the local beer. Well worth a stop for a bite. Eet smakelijk y'all.

“Good ocean view restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Excellent view of morro bay. We liked how the manager asked where we wanted to sit. The fish was disappointing with small fillets as opposed to a Big fish fillet. Great service, but disappointed that the service was included in the bill for 4 persons.

“Excellent food and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Right downtown on the bay, this restaurant is clearly one of the popular spots in town. It was full of people when we were there, but the service was good and the seafood very nicely done.

“Great food, great service, great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We absolutely loved our dinner at Dutchman's and only wish we lived closer so we could eat here again! The restaurant is situated right on Morro Bay with windows overlooking the water and Morro Rock. We loved watching the boats coming and going and a playful seal right outside our window. But it was the food that was truly special. The chicken and dumplings were delicious and filling, the fish and chips were light and crispy, and the salads were huge and fresh. Our server was very pleasant and the owner made sure our glasses were filled. The decor was very tasteful--nautical themed but not tacky. We were very happy with our experience and highly recommend it.

“great meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The service at this restaurant was excellent and it was nicely adorned and extremely tidy. The best though were the excellent and unique offerings, including a chicken and dumplings (gnocchi) selection. The view of Morro Bay and Morro Rock were great.
