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.

We had a surprise visit from some of our family living in southern CA. We scrambled for a nice dinner for six just before the dinner rush. We were able to get a nice bay view table and the service was outstanding, food was perfect. The Clam Chowder, Fish Tacos, Shrimp Louie and even a Hamburger all created a special... More

We stopped here for lunch, the food was very good. Nice chowder, excellent club sandwich however the service was way to rushed. The place was 1/4 full so not exactly desperate to turn tables however they asked if we wanted desert or coffee before we had got halfway through our mains. The mains also came out he second the starters... More

Located on the Embarcadero in Morro Bay, with plenty of parking up and down the street is Dutchman's Seafood House. My wife and I decided to give them a try after several trips to Morro Bay. The food was average in taste and not very memorable. The clam chowder was bland, my wife's salad was so so and my fish... More

A seafood house in Morro Bay seemed to make sense and a 4-star review from my trusted tripadvisor sleuths helped seal the deal. Either it was just a REALLY bad night (11/30, ~7PM) or tripadvisor reviews are becoming about as unhelpful as yelp. A virtually empty restaurant should have been a hint to do a u-turn. My meal was edible... More

Traveling with our dog, our best hope was for take-out seafood we could carry back to our motel. The Dutchman looked lively so we stopped to inquire about take-out and they invited us, with beagle in tow, to a heated outdoor area, where we had the best fish and chips we've enjoyed in years. Great service and we could benefit,... More
