My husband and I had the beer battered fish which was lovely. Kids enjoyed their kids meals too. Beautiful restaurant location. We were able to watch out the window and spot seals swimming. Excellent customer service.

This is one of the Best Kept Secrets on the water in Morro Bay. Case in point: the HAPPY HOUR is so fine! Excellent wine by glass @ $4, great variety of well priced app's on Happy Hr Menu (4-6 pm). I returned 3 times last week while visiting the area. Crab Cakes, Steamed Clams, Fish Tacos, Calamari (the best!).... More

Their batter for the Fish'n'Chips was one of the best in the area....just wished they used local fish (not Atlantic Cod). Great views of the bay in their dining room. Good service, but average food.

Stayed up in Cambria for 3 nights in February '17. Cambria is beautiful, but sadly lacking in seafood choices, and this Santa Fean wants seafood when in Cali! So I ventured down to Morro Bay. First stop was The Dutchman's for lunch where I had Mussels with garlic shoestrings. Outstanding. (Wonderful garlic shoestrings, very fresh mussels! Watching a sea otter... More

Wandered in with no reservation on a Saturday night in February and was immediately seated at a table on the water...nice selection of seafood as well as other types of entrée choices. The bar menu is extensive and enjoyed a cocktail. Would definitely visit again. Very friendly staff and good customer service.

The hostess as well as the owner were extremely helpful and kind. When I explained my special dietary needs they more than met them. The food was spectacular. A weary traveler I went away with a big smile and happy tummy!

The staff was courteous and we were seated promptly. The food was good, standard seafood options. I think there are only so many things to say about fish 'n chips.

Were recommended to eat there by a 'local'. Ordered the ci-ioppino - at $25 I did not expect fish to be 'swimming' in a bowl of broth the consistency of condensed tomato soup. Fished fish out and ate only that. Husband and brother-in-law both ordered the san dabs. Again at $20 per san dab entree, very disappointing meal for both... More
