The History of

Dutchman's Seafood House

Our family emigrated from The Netherlands to Fresno, California, in 1957. Mom and Dad arrived with nine children — there were many mouths to feed. That is one reason why we are in the restaurant business! Mom and Dad taught us the values of a tough work ethic and the drive to succeed as we helped to support the family. In 1964, we began our journey in the restaurant business in the Yosemite Valley, then moved to the Central 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.
