The History of
Dutchman's Seafood House
Our family emigrated from The Netherlands to Fresno, California, in 1957. Mom and Dad brought with them nine children — the family had lots of mouths to feed. That is one reason why we are in the restaurant business! Mom and Dad taught us the values of a strong work ethic and the will to succeed as we helped to support the family. We started in the restaurant business in 1964 in the Yosemite Valley, then moved here to the coast in 1968. Our family has been part of the local restaurant scene for many years.
Our goal is to provide you with friendly service and quality home-cooked meals in a relaxing, family-friendly atmosphere. We strive to treat every guest of Dutchman’s Seafood House as part of our family.
