You've read the reviews. Everyone says it's great. We agree! Hubby loved the chowder and I enjoyed the meatball sammy. It was raining, so we ate in the car. They have a few picnic tables outside but not under cover. We would stop again!

We stopped here for a quick lunch due to the Trip Advisor reviews and it was delicious! They don't have very many places outside to sit and there's nothing inside, so we had to eat in the car, but it was delicious! We had the crab sandwiches and shared a bowl of the clam chowder, which was excellent! Recommend if... More

We were in Sonoma county for a wedding, and frankly, got bored with the winery scene. We thought we might take a drive to some place pretty. Around lunch time I was searching the internet for a quick bite nearby. This may have been one of the happiest accidents of the trip. We bought a crab sandwich and an order... More

Pretty good food and good service. Good for a quick stop for lunch on the way to or from Bodega head, where you can hike with some great views!

We stopped in for takeout crab chowder and crab salad, and we weren't disappointed. They have no liquor license, so be prepared to byo or takeout.

Well, we decided to take an afternoon off from wine drinking, so we'd been hiking in beautiful Bodega Bay and this place came highly recommended here on Trip Advisor. It's a crab shack with picnic tables and an amazing view (which you will be eerily reminded if you watch Hitchcock's "Birds," as I am pretty sure this is the site... More

Just a small little shack. You can go to the express shack and just pay cash for chowder or go wait in line for other goodies and chowder.

Seating only outside this small eatery. Well run and staff efficient and busy, tho' we were served quickly. Most people had the chowder-which was full of fish. Perhaps a little too salty for us. Many locals arrived for takeaways. Always a good sign. Right beside the pier. Lovely! Crab rolls appetizing, tho' a little small for the price. A great... More

This is the best chowder in Bodega Bay, period. Can't get enough. My friend also loves, loves the crab sandwiches. Not much of a crab season this year, so they had their crab brought in from Washington. But, the sandwich was just as good. The menu is very limited, but really, really good. There is some parking about a quarter... More

Really good sandwich spot. Crab salad sandwich was the bomb. Would have gotten another one had the wife let me. Nice day to sit outside as there are no indoor tables. Great lunch
