The Dutchman's was started in 1952 by Otto and Thelka Schmid. It was a small bar and dining room located in what is presently the customer parking lot. A model of the old building (originally called Bayshore Bar) is on display in the front dining room.
Since then, several additions have been made:
The front dining room was an open porch until 1969.
The "Upstairs" was also a porch, enclosed in 1976.
An expansion to the back section of the kitchen in 1981 and to the upstairs in 1983 enabled us to do private parties, banquets, etc., for up to 125 people.
In 1994, an outside bar (The Quelle) was started and completed for the summer of 1995. The name means a source.
