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

This is one of the best happy hours on the Central Coast. The fish tacos are $3 and quite good. The calamari and crab cakes are a great deal. Nice beers on tap and a decent house wine. The restaurant is always super clean and the service is good.

We stopped for a late dinner and arrived near closing time. We were not rushed nor treated other than first class. The menu is great, the food well prepared and the staff....limited when we were there.. were most attentive and helpful.

Wonderful service at the Dutchman! Prompt and piping hot food! We had the fish and chips (made with cod) with shrimp. Hubby had the clam chowder and really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed their family story, immigrants from the Netherlands, here to make a better life for their family!

Stopped off for dinner - had to have their clam chowder. That was okay, but needed some extra spice. Decided to go with appetizers for dinner. Could not finish it all. Delicious mussels and crab cakes. Loved their wine selection (and could take rest of bottle back to hotel. Service was great! The sunset view was awesome!!!!!!!!!

We were hoping for some tasty waterfront chowder, but this was not the place for it. The few clams were flavorful but the rest was devoid of the richness of a great chowder.
