We had dinner here. It was busy on a Tuesday night we put our name on the list and was told it was a 20 minute wait. We had drinks while we waited. We got seated about 20 minutes later at a table with a great view of the bay. We watched seals and sea otters and boats go by.... More

My family and I really enjoyed the fair prices, beautiful view, excellent service and the food is phenomenal. We didn't have to wait long to be seated. I recommend the fish and chips with shrimp and the clam chowder was excellent as well.

We stopped in for a quick bite and while we enjoyed our lunch and the fantastic view we were surprised at our waitress who, while pleasant, was in a rush. While having our salad she asked if there was anything else, would we like dessert. We hadn't even received our entrees. Perhaps a shift change was coming up as we... More

The food in Dutchman's is prima, with excellent fish and skin-on chips, good clam chowder, and a good selection of really fresh seafood. Good Somewhat uninspiring interior, but with a nice view over Morro Bay. Fast and friendly service.

I am from the UK so I am very fussy about my fish and chips. Reading some of the reviews claiming that the fish is frozen did not put me off. I really enjoyed our fish and chips, it tasted fresh and the batter was fresh. We really like them. Washed down with a beer. IT was a busy day... More

When I need to pamper myself I ride my bike down to Dutchman's, greet the bartender Travis whose smile is welcoming and nestle into a chair at a corner table so I can relax and look out at my beloved Bay. Servers are on the spot to take my order and the food is always fresh, hot and prepared to... More

My husband and I came here while on our anniversary trip. He had the seafood combo and a beer, and I had clam chowder, oysters, and the passion fruit margarita. Everything was good, and our server was nice. The view was wonderful and was probably the best part :)
