My wife and I enjoyed our lunch here. I am a big fan of clam chowder, and this was the best chowder I have had, including what I cook myself. The crab sandwich also was superb.

OK, Spud Point, next door, is the go to place for fresh crab sandwiches. This year in June, there is no fresh local crab so it’s brought in from Oregon. Instead, we decided to try Fishermen Cove because they had parking for the moment. They...More

Chowder, Cod Fish and Chips and Oysters on the half shell were terrific. Piping hot soup, crisp and tender fish, and clean sweet Miyagis with mignonette and horseradish were timely and cheerfully presented. Nice repast after a trip out to Bodega Head. Fun little roadside...More

I wish I could relate that this concoction was good. I cannot. It was borderline awful. I will never ask a local for a recommendation again. He loved it ... as above not me. Never thought and stupidly didn't ask if "chili meat and sauce"...More

We're sorry to hear that you were not happy with our food. It’s very clear in the description that crab nachos come with chorizo sauce ( It’s a Mexican inspired dish). Maybe you should just stick with the crab sandwich next time. If there's anything...More

We ate fish and chips at 6 Bodega Bay establishments. This was definitely our favorite. The batter was crisp and flavorful. The chips we hit and crunchy. Their tarter sauce was delicious and not so pickle(ish).

I live 45 min. From Bodega Bay and visit there often before a hike along Bodega Head (an especially great place to whale watch). This is my "go to" place for lunch. If I become hungry for oysters, especially a "po-boy" I'll even drive there...More

I personally enjoyed the crab cocktail and oysters. It was a little pricey for a somewhat sit-down restaurant. However, I would definitely go back.
