We called in here after a visit to the Space Centre. We took a seat outside. There were four of us so at first we sat at a seat for six so we would have plenty of room. We were asked to move to a table for four even though it was early evening and hardly anybody there. It's a... More

One of the top choices for restaurants around the water on the Kemah Boardwalk. The portions are huge, the view is nice, the service is pretty good, only thing is they push selling a Landrys value card before you leave. Try to avoid peak dinner hours in order to get a table on the terrace with a water view. Prices... More

Our friends had fond memories of eating here on many occasions in the past and we took them down as a treat and for the kids to have some fun in Kemah. I try not to write bad reviews of places but after such high hopes everyone was disappointed with the food. It wasn't bad and everyone ate what they... More

We enjoyed our meals at both the Flying Dutchman Restaurant and Oyster Bar. At FD, we enjoyed the salad which was a good portion with fresh shrimps and crab.

We have eaten at the Flying Dutchman many times. We ordered grilled salmon with green beans and a shrimp cocktail. The salmon was very bland and the green beans had way too much of a bell pepper taste to them. The shrimp cocktail was 10.99 and we got 7 shrimp and they were seasoned with a spicy seasoning that just... More

Based on the reviews we had good expectations of the Flying Dutchman. The reality is that their seafood is pretty standard, out of the frozen bag stuff. Which is certainly fine, if that is what you think you are getting. We were expecting some fresh seafood, especially for the price. I guess I would say everything was ok, and if... More

The restaurant is very nice. The view of the bay was nice watching boats come and go. Service was really good. The food was beyond expectations. The prices are a little high so be prepared.

We like this place as it us close to our house and my husband enjoys their oysters. I enjoy their other fare better not being an oyster lover. The food is routinely good are attentive and friendly. Gets crowded on occasions but we try and go between lunch and dinner. For good food and convenience you can't go wrong.

We were a party of four, we all enjoyed the meal. The view from the outdoor patio was wonderful, sail boats and pleasure crafts going in and out of the harbor. The service was good.

Always great food and drink and the service is excellent. Get a table in the corner by the window and be happy.
