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.

Recommended by several of business owners we decided to try this Resturant. Food was good and surprisingly fast service. Tables were dirty and when waiter cleaned it was still dirty. Pricy and atmosphere did not rate. A Landry's Resturant but not up to their standards. Probably will not eat their again.

We intended to just have a quick drink here, but we ended up staying for a couple more... and appetisers! The cocktails are fabulous, food great, and the staff were really lovely. The outdoor seating area is large, airy and right on the waterfront.

Ceviche is awesome. They work well with allergies. Able to enjoy birthday dinner with friends without feeling rushed and without being neglected when we lingered. Not a fancy place but really enjoyed the chill atmosphere and good food. Great service from Matthew was a bonus. Thanks for a great evening...we recommend and will be back!

We visited this place again after 2 years not been here and again we were VERY satisfied with the food, service and cleanliness of the place. Prices still high but worth the money spent there.Highly recommended.

Had an excellent broiled seafood platter in relaxed environment with view of the water. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This restaurant is part of the Landry Family Group, so you can use Landry's Reward Program. Prices are moderate.
