Oysters, Clams and Crab

A must place to enjoy casual sea food done simply and deliciously. It is very casual and very good! Oysters on the bbq or on the 1/2 shell were fantastic. Clam chowder with lots of clam in every bite. Worth the wait standing in line to order.

We went on a Sunday after lunch time and there was still a big wait in line. You order at a counter in a very small inside area. I had the fresh crab sandwich which was good except it is served on a roll similar to a larger hot dog bun. It is fresh crab with a mayonnaise type dressing... More

There is only one reason to eat here. The clam chowder. Do it. Only negative in the whole experience is that they close for the day at 5 pm. Sharp. As in, don't get caught in the door when they slam it shut. And be prepared to walk a ways from where you can find a place to park. Go... More

Wanted to try this place as I've always heard good things about it. When you walk in, it's half restaurant/half bait shop, so VERY casual. I had the fresh catch of the day which was wild caught salmon and chips. The salmon was seasoned perfectly! There's a few picnic tables outside, but I opted to inside as it was alittle... More

A favorite stop in Bodega. Best clam chowder & amazing, fresh crab sandwich. No pretense, just a casual, laid-back waterfront gem. There can be long lines around lunch time, but it's well worth the wait. Don't miss it when you're in the area.

This is a must stop for us when we come to Bodega Bay. They have delicious clam chowder. Gotta get here early as they have had times where they have run out. What!?!

Delicious! My mom and I split a crab sandwich and chowder. Excellent! Can't wait to go back. The crab pots are cooking right out front, across from the marina. Great food and atmosphere.

When it comes to taste, you know what you like. We do too, and after tasting clam chowder up and down the coast of CA, OR and WA we were dubious of the claim that this was voted the best clam chowder 11 years in a row. They don't have much table space for the demand so we opted for... More

Incredible clam chowder and crab sandwiches. You cannot get crab cakes until 1 pm. Nice view and clean tables. Do not miss this quick lunch or snack stop!
