“Fresh fish, Awesome view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Upon a recommendation from our hotel, we had dinner at the Dutchman's Seafood House. The staff was friendly and attentive, the clam chowder was the best we've had in years, and the seafood meals we ordered were fresh and delicious. Add a perfect sunset view overlooking the bay, and it was a great experience. We'll definitely eat here again and recommend this restaurant to all our friends who travel through Morro Bay.

“The BEST clam chowder and killer Bloody Mary's!! The best seafood in Morro Bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Yesterday we went to Dutchman's Seafood House in Morro Bay for lunch and it was awesome as always. It's by far my favorite seafood restaurant!! My son had the orange roughy which just melted in your mouth. And the clam chowder and fish and chips was the best I've ever had. And a wonderful surprise....the Bloody Mary was amazing. It was served with an olive, celery, and .....get this.........a fresh jumbo shrimp on a skewer! It was to die for. Can't wait to go back again!!!

“Bets Meal on Our Road Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Loved the french fries, popcorn shrimp, cole slaw, and view! Excellent service. Just what you want from a seaside restaurant. Couldn't have been happier.

“Fresh from the Ocean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The Dutchman's Seafood House is a restaurant where they really understand where this business is all about to be distinctive from the neighbours: deliver Top Quality and Super Service! We had the oysters which tasted as if they were sent from heaven. Really delicious. With the main course came the chowder and dear Trip Advisor reader let me tell you: this tasted even better than that you can get it in Boston! As main course we decided to go for the catch of the day: halibut with spinach and pilaf rice. Catch of the day here means really Catch of the Day! Fresher than this means that the fish is still swimming in the ocean! Awesome and Superb were the only words we could find to express the angel on our tongue. Also the winelist is having excellent choices both in red and white; the young lady that served us (very good!) recommended a local chardonnay that matched very well with the halibut for only 24 $ the bottle. Thank you Dutchman for this excellent meal!

“Was not as good as Last Year”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We returned here because we had such a good experience last year.
Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The food was not good, over priced and the service was the worst we have had in a long time.
They brought me the wrong entre. I mentioned it. They then brought me what I ordered, but there was no apology, and I felt like I had inconvenienced them.
We will not return to this restaurant, do not bother going.
