Fresh, rustic and simple, you can imagine they are alive!!! That was my first Chowder!!! I know, it is weird!! But the soup (I tested white one) was fantastic. Shrimp and seafood Sandwiches are very tasty.

Lazy Sunday drive to Spuds Point to find a relaxed outdoor atmosphere and fantastic food. The chowder is the best and the crabs are fresh and sweet. Live light music and fun crowd made this a perfect place for Sunday afternoon.

Looking for the best clam chowder ever? Look no more. You will find it here. Rustic setting but so worth waiting in line or even taken home to enjoy with fresh sourdough break and a fresh salad with cracked crab that is now in season.

The lines can be long but definitely worth the wait. We always get the white clam chowder. We always bring a thermos to take some home. The crab sandwich is tasty too. There is a cash only express station outside if the line is too long. You can only order chowder there and it will save lots of time. Parking... More

After your beach time this is the place to go. Outside seating or take out only. Some of the best clam chowder I have ever eaten. Crab sandwiches, crab cocktails, a really fun place loved by tourists and locals.

We were camping at Lawson's Landing, Dillons Beach, CA. Drove over to have their wonderful Clam Chowder for lunch. Great as always. All staff are very helpful and cheerful. Also took a Seafood Sandwich and a Tri-Tip sandwich back to the RV for dinner. Yummy. We always try to eat here when we are in the area. Always consistent food... More

Awesome tasting clam chowder! The clam chowder offered here was fantastic; hot, fresh and very reasonably priced. The only drawback was eating at the picnic tables, there were many bees. This took away from the overall experience.

We found this little gem by accident - Been to Bodega before and wanted some crab. We asked a "local" and followed her advice. Long line to get to the counter, but don't worry, they work really fast and the wait is totally worth it. Buy some fresh bread and enjoy!

This is a fun stop right on the bay. The menu is not huge, but there was only one thing I wanted - the clam chowder. In my opinion, this is the best clam chowder. This is a place I will definitely go again when back in the area.
