ALWAYS a good choice for light dining fare, such as lunch, or full blown dining. Excellent view of waterfront.

Went for redfish Ponchartrain- which, along with two of their other most popular dishes, is gone. Poor service, mediocre food at best. That’s a shame- have gone there for years. Will journey to Gus’ in Texas City for Ponchartrain.

Not quite like the old Flying Dutchman form many years ago but still good. This is Landry's restaurant. The food was good and hot when served. I had the oysters bienville which was very good and a I had flounder special which was also good....More

We had a very nice meal here. Shrimp remoulade was very tasty, as were the stuffed snapper, Ixtapa flounder and the Salmon Rockefeller. Service, food presentation, and ambiance was all very good. I would highly recommend this place on the boardwalk.

After a long, crappy day riding rides, we found this place. The food was really great. There was lots of items that everyone liked in the menu and the drinks were cold. I would eat here again

Came here because the menu seemed diverse... Ordered a few things.. Was not impressed by the food at all. Not flavor what so ever... Seemed like the cooks were not very trained... Would of rather just went to a hole in the wall place it...More

Food was okay. Waiter was nice but did not do a very good job---didn't check on us until we were nearly done eating, never brought a second ice tea for either of us, forgot to cash us out.

The food was OK - my husband liked his gumbo and crawfish etouffee much better than I liked my seafood platter - but the overall dining experience was a mess. I wouldn't go back. The location is great - right on the water - and...More

Went as a group for lunch. Food was fresh and reasonably priced. On the water with a good view. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Group of thirty and went smoothly.

The happy hour is M-F, 3pm to 7pm. Most of the drinks drop to half-price, so it's a great deal. Plus where else can you enjoy such a relaxing view of the Kemah channel\Galveston Bay while having some great oysters and a... More
