This is a tiny little restaurant along the outside bay in Bodega Bay. We went there because the visitor center said they were voted the best clam chowder for the past 8 years. We were NOT disappointed. The term "restaurant" may be an overkill ... there is no inside tables or seats, so it's a stretch to even call it... More

The clam chowder was simply delicious! Not heavy or too creamy...just great. The sandwich had plenty of crab & a tasty dressing too. The crab cakes were great but we were expecting them to be warm instead of cold & I think they would be more enjoyable.

We were going to the Charles Schulz museum and stopped at Spud Point Crab Company for lunch across the street from the harbor. Everyone had clam chowder, and we all said it was the best clam chowder we ever ate. We topped it off with sandwiches that were also very good. You ordered the food inside at the counter and... More

How lucky are we to be here at the beginning of crab season. Right by the water. Pots bubbling away. Fabulous chowder, delicious crab sandwiches. The perfect place.

We have visited this little hole in the wall many times, but were slightly disappointed on this trip. The chowder was a little too thin, and lacked the amount of chopped clams as in the past. The crab sandwich was also disappointing, as it seems they used the poorest quality of crab, usually found in the joints, rather than the... More

Their crab sandwiches, crab cakes, and piping hot clam chowder are to die for. If you invest the time and gas to get to Bodega Bay, don't miss this roadside restaurant. They're not cheap eats, but are definitely worth the prices paid. Good luck finding a place to sit after you get your order, but even standing is ok once... More

The crab sandwich was fresh and tasty. The clam chowder was perfect. Dining is on picnic tables outside. Parking is a bit of a challenge but well worth a short walk to the restaurant. Very happy I checked TripAdvisor to find this place. They won't disappoint. No alcohol served.

Tried the crab sandwich and crab cocktail based on recommendations from locals working in the Sonoma wineries. Personally, I thought it was good but nothing stellar. Now, I did not have their famous clam chowder so perhaps I should have to be fair. Afterwards, we walked next door and ordered fresh raw oysters from Fishermans Cove. Best oysters!

Restaurant is nothing fancy, but simply the clam chowder is amazing. Parking can be a bit of an issue as there is not much around. Neat location close to Bodega Head which is beautiful. Would visit again simply for the chowder.

We passed this place up last time because of the long line. What a mistake! This trip we found a parking spot (which takes a minute or two) and walked up to get in line (which moves quickly). The menu is basic and simple. We ordered two crab sandwiches and a clam chowder. All the picnic tables were full so... More
