I grew up in the area and use to enjoy Captain John's many years before the Landry's corporation re-developed the area into a NJ style boardwalk. I no longer live in Tx but when I visit nearby I try to make a visit to Kemah for great Gulf Coast seafood. I've eaten at the Flying Dutchman a few times, always sitting outside near the strolling walkway to watch the boats (fishing and pleasure) sail by. I've never eaten anything but seafood and have not been disappointed. On my last visit I ate a shrimp salad. My only complaint was that it was a little heavy on the mayo. Still there was a very good amount of shrimp in the salad.
NOTE: For families with children there is a nice little playground for the small ones on their outdoor deck. If you do not have children, ask to be seated a little bit away from this area.
