“Good traditional seafood with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Spent one night in Morro Bay and decided to eat at the Dutchman. We were craving fish and chips and this place seemed like a place to get good seafood with good ambiance. Being a long weekend, place was crowded when we arrived but folks were getting seated quickly once patrons left. While waiting, I think we saw the owner teaching his grandson ( maybe 7-8 years old) how to use the cash register, was cute to watch. We got seated with 10 mins and had our orders taken. I had the fish and chips with a cup of clam chowder which was voted best in the bay. Was pleasantly surprised that it had the same thickness and consistency as clam chowder from New England, unlike most clam chowders from the San Francisco Bay Area which tend to be very watery and bland. This one was also made with bacon like the ones I had in New England. The fish and calamari were very fresh and well made. I substituted the bistro garlic fries with my fish chips and it was only a $0.99 more, well worth the upgrade. The service staff was extremely friendly and provided great service. We also had the owner come by and checkin on us as well as wish us good night as we left. Nice place for relaxing evening dinner.

“Great place for lunch or dinner. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Have eaten here the last two times we have been in Morro Bay. Both times were decent experiences. Waiters are a little un-attentive. But food is good and experience is good. Sunset is best time to eat here. Great view.

“Excellent View Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We returned to the restaurant after having a very good experience at their Happy Hour 2 different times a few days earlier. The food we had during those experiences was excellent and the beverages were very good and fairly priced. It was the best Happy Hour we experienced in Morro Bay. The lunch was even better. My wife had sand dabs and I had a very large bowl of clam chowder. Both were excellent and very large. The servers on our 3 visits were excellent. They provided good information on food and drinks and were very hospitable. The restaurant is located right on the waterfront with excellent views of the bay and Morro Rock. When we return to Morro Bay we will return to the Dutchman's Seafood House.

“Very good clam chowder!”

We had clam chowder and dinner salads and were very happy.

The service was very good and it is a nice location.

We thought the prices were reasonable for what we had.
