According to others who have complained about the prices being incorrect, their response is that they have gotten in touch with TripAdvisor but it's never updated. The restaurant suggests that you go to their website to view menus but when you click on the menu, it does not load. I feel this is strictly a way to get you there... More

Went to brunch on a Sunday afternoon w/members of my church and family. Had a GREAT time! The food was wonderful. Everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned very well. Had a plethora of options to chose from and everything was good. The staff was awesome, very polite and exemplified great customer service skills. The atmosphere was very relaxing and... More

I've had many meals at Dutch's since the mid-'80's...and almost always capitulate and get (regardless of the price) the crabcakes! Owner Eileen's recipe is divine, and there are few nearly as good and VERY few better anywhere. Wait staff is disciplined and quite good. Go!

The crab cake imperial is the best. Order the lighter portion. Portions are generous. Have the dinner salad and twice baked potato with it. The bread comes with two choices of butter. The honey cinnamon butter is the best. Friendly and courteous staff. They have a bar option for casual dining called 'The Dungeon'.

We have hosted a party, brunched, lunched, dinnered and happy hour'd. I think the food quality is good. A little expensive. The brunch is great for a group of people. This is not my go-to restaurant. Many friends rave about it.

We chose this restaurant due to the high ratings on TripAdvisor. Luckily we were able to get same day reservations. We had only packed casual clothes for our summer vacation and therefore asked for the casual section, which was the Dungeon. There were still people dressed up in this area but we didn't feel out of place. We were greeted... More

Took my wife and her sister, mother in law for lunch a few days after mothers day. The crab dip was good but lacking in much crab. I has a blackened fish sandwich that had a nice flavor but was mushy and overcooked. Slid off the bread on the first bite. Service was adequate but not stellar. Server seemed to... More
