Went for lunch and had bacon wrapped shrimp for an appetizer (grilled) and the stuffed shrimp for entree. The crab and stuffing was fresh with very good flavor. The service was attentive and the waiter was knowledgeable. Try the bacon wrapped shrimp for an appetizer....More

Excellent seafood and a great view. Shrimp Kisses are a must for appetizer. Catfish was fantastic and the wife had Mahi Mahi excellent also. This is a very good place to eat.

The Flying Dutchman is our go to, favorite restaurant in Kemah. Some may shy away as it's part of the Landry's Group/Chain but if they do they're missing out. The food is always consistent and always very good. Most tables have a great view of...More

Service staff at lunch on Friday was not well trained, but both food and drinks were truly subpar. The specialty bar drinks were overly sweet, and we could not detect the alcohol. My shrimp salad was so mediocre that it wasn't worth eating. No bread...More
