We had a luncheon of about 40 people at this restaurant. The service was great and the food was great. They were very attentive to have so many people to serve. I had the Shrimp platter and my husband had the Seafood platter. Plenty to eat and prices were very reasonable. The only complaint was that they needed to have... More

I'm not much for seafood, but if you're on the waterfront, you must partake (it'll be fresh, right?)! The place has a large patio area, but the 1 hour wait found us belly up to the bar (I was hungry!). It was a decent dining experience. I had the shrimp (all ways). The best was the coconut and my least... More

I can not say enough to discourage a person from going to this restaurant. This is pure unadulterated tourist food at its best. Fried, overpriced, not fresh and sold like it was gold nuggets on the plate. It is dated. The service is poor. Not Mr Gorbachev but Mr. Fertitta - tear this restaurant down!

I want to love this place. The atmosphere is pretty, it is clean and the water view tables are plentiful. Service was courteous and just right. Unfortunately everything on the plate was a disappointment. The fish fingers were alright and it was more food than I expected, but the stuffed jalapeños fell flat with supposed seafood filling tasting wrong. Even... More

My husband and I ate here on our wedding night. The seafood was fresh and absolutely delicious!!! Our only complaint was our waiter, he could have been more observant and attentive. But, the food takes the cake! It was awesome!

Great variety of items on the menu. Seafood platter is a great meal. Ribeye was quite good as well. A little pricey but the quality of food justified the price.

Every restaurant on the boardwalk said an hour wait and that was with empty tables. Not Flying Dutchman. We got right in and sat down. Sam, the waiter, got us drinks and an appetizer really fast and before we finished it, our food was there. It was a great ! The drinks were great, the food was okay but sitting... More

The cocktail service was VERY slow last night. It greatly contrasted the speed with which the food was served. The shrimp remoulade was excellent as was the blackened catfish etouffee.

Great seafood, cocktails and service. Eating on the deck by the water was amazing!!! Accommodations for intimate dinner or large group of friends. You can enter the restaurant from both the boardwalk and a front entryway. I absolutely love this place!!!

I believe the prices were spot on for the amount and quality of the food. The service was excellent. It is always nice to get your drinks first and you can enjoy your drink while looking at the menu to decide what you want to order.
