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

I was reluctant in eating at the Dutchman's but the motel clerk recommended it highly and it was within walking distance of our room. We also received a discount card so we tried it out. It was a Friday night during off season about 7:00 so we had about a 10 minute wait to be seated. They were only seating... More

This restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel which was a good job. We ordered fish and shrimps and I had fish and chips. The portions were enormous. The battered fish was tasty and succulent, and the chips were had cut and crispy. Would recommend.

We arrived just at dusk and got a peek of the view before it went dark – arrive early to get a window seat and enjoy the sunset. Had a 45 min wait for a table, but the service in the bar was excellent and so were the crab cakes. This is not fine dining with lots of families, noise,... More

Normal food typical for location. Large helping and tasty, though I was rather disappointed my shrimp Louis was served with a bottled Thousand dressing. This is such an easy dressing to make & would have made my otherwise good Louis much better. Very nice view. Service was strained at best. Our waitress did not want to be at work that... More

Casual, friendly restaurant. Specializing in very fresh and local fish, along with some seafood favorites. We loved the day's special swordfish and the tacos. No reservations except larger parties, avoid the peak time of 7:30.

Good food and good service. My wife and I ordered a seafood platter and the waitress Ellie had it put into 2 plates for us which was very thoughtful of her. I also had some good beer while eating there. We sat at the window overlooking the water.
