“Unique flavors”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Small quaint restaurant set off from the mall on the same property with exceptional Corn Beef!! I've had the CB and sauerkraut numerous times with their monstrous dill pickles while my spouse prefers their exceptional crapes.

“Much blander and mediocre than you would expect”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Yes, it's an edible breakfast but that's about it. The ham is sliced cold cut thin and is so water plumped that it has no taste, the scrambled eggs are rubbery to the point of bouncing, and the "hashbrowns" should be noted as not being hashbrowns at all but basic small square cross-section french fries that have been cut up into half inch slices. The coffee is generally acrid and unpleasant, the restaurant itself is dingy and not exactly spotlessly clean, and if it wasn't for the very friendly and capable service, this place would have earned itself a POOR rating. The worst part is when you sit down at 8:35 am and realize that five minutes earlier you could have had the Dutchman for $4.95 while now it's essentially the same thing but called the Canadian and costs TWICE AS MUCH. I'm all for early bird specials, but you're really slapping your customers across the face when you don't have a "special" at all but just double the cost of a meal when the clock hits 8:30. Extremely poor management decision. I sure won't come back to this place. Yuck.

Dear Customer,
I am very sorry to hear that you were that extremely dissapointed in your meal. It would be very helpful to both of us if you had expressed your dissatisfaction to our friendly staff to give us the chance to inherence your experience. In regards to Early Bird Specials, the Canadian Breakfast and the Dutchmen do differ in the portion size and protein reflecting the price difference. In addition to this, Early Bird Specials meant to bring in an early crowd instead of supplying at cost meals all day long.

“Good lunch and great breakfast - Dutch style”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We had both a lunch and a breakfast at this Dutch food restaurant. They are open only for breakfast and lunch. Reasonably priced especially before 8:30 am breakfast specials. Very good service.
