Over the years my daughter and I have eaten here several times and even if there is a mile long line we'll wait! I cannot help myself to compare all other chowders to theirs. It's thick and a little peppery and the clams melt in...More

The best clam chowder anywhere! Being one who makes a really good New England Clam Chowder myself, I can say that no one makes it better than Spud Point. The chowder has the perfect amount of thickness, lots of clams, and other yummy ingredients. There's...More

At Spud Point Crab Company you order inside at the counter and sit outside at picnic tables. The white clam chowder was delicious.

We had a chowder each and split a crab sandwich. The chowder was good, but I would suggest making it a fish rather than clam chowder. A bit lean and creamy, but thankfully not too much potato. Why crab cakes only at weekends? A nice...More

Minimal line if you go early. Nothing wrong having a crab sandwich and clam chowder at 10:30 am. Lots of parking too. Why stress standing in a long line just to told they finished all the crab just before you made it inside. Remember, you...More

Parking. Ah, the parking. You have to hunt for that. But it is worth the visit. The menu is not that extensive. But what you are here for is the crab sandwich and the chowder. Sorry. Chowda. The Spousal Unit is from New England so...More

This was a great recommendation by friends, lovely setting, very popular but didn’t have to wait long. Fresh crab sandwiches, prawns (shrimp) and chowder are all good choices and not too expensive. I am not a fishy person but loved this place - a must...More

It is best just to stop by the side hut and get some chowder to go rather than waiting an extremely long time. All of the food is good, but the chowder is the best on the menu.

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!
