Hate to tell more people about this gem since it is already crowded, but if you like lump crab, crab sandwich, or clam chowder, this is your spot. We hit this place as often as possible when in town. Seating is outdoor and very limited. They're open 9 - 5, consider getting your stuff early and taking it up the hill to Bodega Point for a picnic overlooking the ocean.

We sought out this place based on trip advisor recommendations. It was very good food but you had to go across the street to another place to use the bathroom. Plus all seating was outside, although that is where we wanted to sit anyway. A little hard to find on the West side of the bay but a great little place to stop.

cute little place with outside seating. Live music was an added bonus. Chowder would have been great if it didn't have garlic in it. The garlic overpowered the delicate taste of the clams.

People stand in line for this clam chowder but it is totally worth it. We tried the crab cakes and crab sandwiches both delicious but the clam chowder is the clear winner.

Both of us ordered clam chowder and we split and order of crab cakes and 1 crab sandwich between the two of us. All three items were very delicious, fresh, and definitely made it worth the trip.
I give 5 stars for the food taste and quality, and 3 stars for the setting, ambiance, sitting area.
Don't expect anything fancy. There is only an outside sitting area with the wooden picnic tables and the space is very limited. In fact, we had to share one table with 3 different parties, 6 people total. But eating fresh food in the fresh air outside, looking at the marina, felt very appropriate.
It is a bit pricey: $38.32 for 2 clam chowders, 1 crab sandwich, 1 order of crab cakes. One would not expect to spend so much for a lunch at a place that has no restaurant setting to it. If I were to analyze the value I get out of a dining experience, I would consider this place overpriced, due to the fact that it's hard to find a place to sit, and I don't get real plates and silverware. However, the long queue at the door and the popularity of the place, indicates that the quality of food compensates for the lack of setting and they priced their food at a fair pricing point to have crowds of people willing to come back and taste their delicious food again.
