Best clam chowder I've ever had!

Even though there was a line, service was quick and friendly. Wish I didn't live so far, I would come back often. Very fun experience, eating outside at picnic tables, across from the marina.

This ended up being the least expensive meal during our family trip to the west coast. It also ended up being one of the best. Take away having to stand in line and order at the counter, only being able to sit on some picnic tables outside of the building, and you get a very good clam chowder and one... More

The clam chowder is good, but it's not the best I've ever tasted. The crab sandwich on the other hand is beyond delicious! I wish they didn't close so early (what is it with restaurants that close at 5 PM here?), but a great place for lunch!

Many locals told us that Spud Point has the best clam chowder. I am not going to argue with the locals- they're right! My friend enjoyed a delicious crab sandwich too. Great outdoor patio overlooking the docks and the bay. Great setting and a great place to stop on your way to Bodega Head.

This place has their service down to a science. You line up to order, and when given a number you don't have to wait long at all to go to another line to pick it up. The chowder is served in a Styrofoam cup, but it is a large cup and steaming hot. They have bags of wonderful sourdough bread... More

The clam chowder is what brings the crowd and rightly so. It's just plain good. Nothing fancy, not garlicy, just very good traditional clam chowder. We've been coming to this place for a few years now and come to Bodega Bay a few times a year and this is a must stop. Tip - don't just stick with the clam... More

If you want a great sandwich, I recommend the crab sandwich. It was delicious. The Portuguese fish stew was also delicious. The weather was great so we sat outside and throughly enjoyed ourselves.

We had the crab sandwich and the chowder. Both were excellent and well worth it. We ordered crab which was fresh and very good. Since it was a weekday we didn't get to try the crab cakes. We'll have to go back!!

Stopped because it was on the way to the beach, said it had famous chowder. Well it might be famous for something but it is nowhere near a great chowder..

Over the years we have had two dishes in this food stop. The Crab Sandwhich and the TrimTip Sanwhch. Both have been five star every tingle time and the crab sandwiches make this place a destination stop.
