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.

Was in town for the Super Bowl alone and Janice the Bartender made my stay enjoyable. She was polite and professional. She had a great supporting cast of other waiters, Erin and Jessica stood out! The oysters were tasty and the food excellent. I had the fried shrimp, they were fresh and cooked just right. I would recommend this restaurant... More

The Flying Dutchman is a long standing establishment in Kemah, TX. Although there are several other restaurant selections, they are generally chain restaurants, wheras the Flying Dutchman is not. The outdoor eating area sits along the famous Kemah Boardwalk and is a great place to see the boats coming and going. The portions of food are very generous and could... More

I love seafood, so I was looking for a good seafood restaurant with my wife. The seafood was average here, but the view was nice, right on the water. The ceviche was not special, oysters on the half shell were fresh and grilled oysters were good. If you want a reasonably priced seafood restaurant, with water view, average seafood, and... More

We arrived at the restaurant shortly after 7 and was seated promptly. Our waiter greeted us and took our drink order immediately and returned shortly there after to take our food order. The restaurant was clean minus the stack of boxes next to the restrooms. The view was amazing and the food was delicious. My friends and I can't wait... More
