It simply hit the spot. So good to have a really delicious cup of coffee in the area. I had the waffle which was simple and filling. Loved the view and the service was spot on. We were well taken care of. Only downfall... The flies!! Nonstop. They annoyed us tremendously. Would love for something to have been done about... More

Went to the Sandpiper by default. Other places that we know are good closed at 5pm. Anyway, wife had he crab sandwich which was good. No excuse for a bad one in Bodega Bay. I had the Fishermanswharf Plate. Everything had a too thick coating for th shrimp and fish. After a half a inch of the coating you get... More

I read the other reviews of the Sandpiper Restaurant, but we had a great experience there for breakfast today. The coffee was perfect and while the service was a little slow, our meals were well-worth the wait. I had eggs, French Toast, hashbrowns and bacon (I think it was called "Two eggs and Two Friends") and it was delicious and... More

When it gets above 100 degrees inland, we head for the coast, i.e. Bodega Bay. As you travel north on Hwy. One going through Bodega Bay, look for the Sandpiper, just before the turnoff to the harbor. Tucked between a kayak rental shop and a veterinarian, is an incredible stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For the vegans, a full... More

So so all around experience. Just looking for a quick casual lunch and that is what we got, period. The best meal that anyone in our group ordered was the pizza. Salads were the weakest link.

We had not been to the Sonoma Coast for ten years. At that time we had a favorite restaurant - The Sandpiper. On this visit we were looking forward to having lunch at an old favorite. Big change! The Sandpiper used to be down in the dock area of Bodega Bay, had a wonderful crusty atmosphere, great food and always... More

We went to The Sandpiper against our better judgement, as it was in walking distance on a misty night. We should have listened to the reviews! One course each, fish and chips for my companion, crab roll for me, both served with chips. Terrible chips, dark brown in colour and may have been through the fryer on several occasions. Very...

Javier and his family work very hard to provide good service and good food to their customers. We were in town from Las Vegas and first stopped by for dinner a couple of weeks ago. The linguini and clams was average but the pizza was absolutely burned. Javier was quite apologetic and took care of the problem. We returned for... More

Although the hard rock music was a bit load for 8:30 am the service was good. The Crab Benedict had lots of fresh crab, the juice portions more generous than most and the bacon was high quality. We will do it again.
