You can't get better than Dutchess Daughter in this area. The food is exquisite and the service is top notch. This is definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion!

The food at Dutch's is not fancy, bit it is always good. We usually seem to end up here around the holidays to meet up with friends and it is always packed. So be sure to make reservations. Dutch's is known for their crabcakes so my husband and I both ordered them. They were good, not the best I ever... More

I've eaten here twice. The first time was not very good. The second time was great! My review is a combination of the two. For the first visit, I ate in the dining room upstairs. It was a business dinner. Our server was clueless. We were asking very basic questions about the beer options--do you have a wheat beer? Do... More

We had a work meeting here and I was told that they had good crab cakes so I gave it a go. They are amazing! The service was good for 20 plus in the room and the meeting area was on one side of the restaurant so it was easy to stay focused in the meeting.

I got the broiled mix of crab, shrimp and scallops. Excellent! Heavy on the crab. I had them leave off the Cajun seasoning. It's too much for the crab! A great thing is that they take reservations so we didn't have to wait at all to be seated.

Meet my husband here for Happy Hour usually twice a month. In the warmer months we love the patio; when cooler we love the Dungeon Bar with gas fireplaces! Delicious happy hour food choices and awesome bartenders!

My husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary at Dutch's Daughters. We both ordered the filet mignon with the twice baked potatoes and the portions were large and the filet mignon was perfectly cooked. I hear the crab cakes are very good here. Looking forward to our next visit..

This restaurant is fabulous. The food is wonderful and the portions are large. The service can be a little slow at times, but I don't want to get on and out too quickly on a date night anyway. I would recommend the crab cakes, filet oscar and just about anything else on the menu.

What can you say about this place that hasn't already been said? I don't think I've ever heard anyone say, "no, I'd never go there." While I can't say I love everything on the menu (the crab cakes are a real disappointment), most of the fare is quite delectable. The crab dip is to die for. We usually end up... More
