A small walkup restaurant with the absolute best clam chowder on the planet! I'm sure it tips the cholesterol scale for added butter, but hey, the taste is amazing!

This is kind of a dive, you have to wait in-line, you have to sit outside, there are no bathrooms, it’s hard to park, but it was worth all that and more. Best crab sandwich I’ve ever had. I wanted to load my suitcase for...More

We went there because of recommendations on the clam chowder. We were not disappointed! Chowder was excellent as were both the prawn and crab cocktails! It got pretty busy around noon time. Good news spreads quickly! Outdoor seating only, but the weather was fantastic during...More

A friend tipped me off to this joint and it was damn good. Quality clam chowder and crab salad sandwich was a little slice of California heaven. Make the trip and get your crab on.

We always stop at Spuds crab shack for a crab sandwich & chowder when in Bodega. Simple not fancy. Great sandwich with fresh crab and crispy soft roll. We’re from the N. East and chowder rivals that in New England where the stuff was created....More

We ate here on our first trip to California based on internet reviews. They were true! Went back to California a year later. Drove an hour (at least) out of our way because yes that Dungeness crab is that good.

We stopped at Spud Point for lunch while on a drive along the coastal highway. The place was busy; in fact it took a while to find a place to park several hundred feet down the highway. The line up was confusing: you place your...More

There is no liquor license. It is a fast casual place with outside picnic tables and only serve non-alcoholic beverages. Food is great so don't let the fact they don't serve alcohol stop you!
