We went here because I haven't had good fish and chips since we got back from the UK. I was not disappointed as they were cooked perfectly and also ordered the chips with the garlicy sauce, that was a killer. Just make sure your friends or family eat the garlicy sauce too.

My wife and friends visited this place for lunch when we were in Morro Bay and were pleasantly surprised with the fish dishes at this fairly nondescript restaurant. My wife had a fish sandwich which was moist and delicious. I had the fish and chips which were also moist and delicious. A friend had the halibut which he enjoyed very... More

Steamed clams and mussels were pretty good. The main meal was average at best. Sand dabs were mushy, served with soggy rice. Service was good, and the ambience is a typical wharf eatery, which was fun. The highlight of the meal was the sea otters floating around in the ocean and eating just outside the window.

Had the bread bowl super good. Then tried to eat two pieces of fish and shrimp most excellent. Stuff myself just because it tasted so good.

Great sand dabs and clams. Everything served hot and fresh...no sitting under a heat lamp. Good service and lovely view of the sunset.

Pet Friendly. But the sitting area was really dirty. Service was decent. No special care for our dog though. :(

Stopped for lunch. Mussels over cooked, very rubbery, lacking white wine in the mussels and too much lemon. Crab cakes, ahi tuna were adequate. Oysters were mostly good, one was very fishy.

Although a bit pricey, the food is very good. We had the fish and chips which was made with cod and the steamed clams were delicious. We always stop here when in Morro Bay and it never disappoints!

Since my new position has me working close to Morro Bay now, I decided to check out some more places there. We would be there for a very early dinner (or late, late lunch), I I had to pick a place that was open. Dutchman's fit the description. Although I had heard of the Happy Hour, we decided to sit...
