Wonderful service at the Dutchman! Prompt and piping hot food! We had the fish and chips (made with cod) with shrimp. Hubby had the clam chowder and really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed their family story, immigrants from the Netherlands, here to make a better life for their family!

Stopped off for dinner - had to have their clam chowder. That was okay, but needed some extra spice. Decided to go with appetizers for dinner. Could not finish it all. Delicious mussels and crab cakes. Loved their wine selection (and could take rest of bottle back to hotel. Service was great! The sunset view was awesome!!!!!!!!!

We were hoping for some tasty waterfront chowder, but this was not the place for it. The few clams were flavorful but the rest was devoid of the richness of a great chowder.

My husband and I have been coming here for years, most often for lunch. We always enjoy their 'fish and chips' or the 'fish/shrimp combo and chips'. The food is fresh and piping hot when it arrives at your table. I chose to substitute a salad for the fries ($3 extra I think), and was pleased with the quality. The... More

We had happened into a wine shop in Morro Bay and bought a bottle. The owner of the shop said he had agreements with several restaurants in town to waive corkage of his wines. He suggested several and we chose Dutchman's. First, when presented with the bottle, the server couldn't have looked more annoyed. Actually, he looked annoyed at our... More

We stopped by for happy hour more than once on a recent trip and stayed for dinner. Service was a little slow in the bar as it got pretty crowded. The food was fresh and the drink specials were the best in town. Lovely sunset views.
