There is limited seating and sometimes the outside seating can be windy so it can be uncomfortable at... read more

Quite disappointed in the clam chowder after having heard rave reviews. Over the top amount of garlic and thin on the clams. On the other hand staff was very friendly and the picnic tables were clean.

everything is "just off the boat". There were complaints about the length of the line and the prep time, but the fact is that the line is long on weekends because it's the best. So get over it. Stand in line with a very good friend, enjoy the fact that you're right in the marina, stacked crab pots and all,... More

Don't miss this little gem in Bodega Bay. There's usually a line, but it's worth the wait. Looking forward to going back on our next trip through the area.

Spent my early years on Cape Cod & thought we had the best clam chowder in the world!! Not so, this was the best!1 Thick with lots of clams and a touch of garlic. WONDERFUL! Outside eating & not fancy. Overlooking harbor & boats.

This small crab shack wins all the local contests for best chowder. My husband gets the red, I get the white. We split the excellent crab sandwich...get it all to go and drive to the end of the road to Bodega Head and watch the waves! (or whales when in season!) Closed on Wednesdays.. There are picnic tables in front.
