You'll have to stay in a long line and to fight for a place to sit, but it's totally worth it! Their clam chowder is very good, and the crab sandwich is heaven. Do not get discouraged by the looks of the place - it's a hole in the wall type of restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious.

There is a reason there's a crowd here. Great chowder., great crab sandwiches. After enjoying a hike or walking the beach, Stop by Spud Point Crab Company for the perfect ending to a day in Bodega Bay

We are here when we last visited Bodega Bay 5 years ago. It was so good we couldn't wait to eat here when we visited again. It was just as good as I remember it being. The crab sandwiches are delicious. We will be back.

Good food. Excellent clam chowder and great sandwiches. Be prepared to eat outside at picnic tables. Seating is limited, but customers share tables. We really enjoyed the experience.

I've tried clam chowder up and down the coast and Spud Point has the best--thick and creamy with a hint of spice and garlic. The portion is generous, enough to fill you for hours, and the price is very reasonable. Enjoy your chowder, or a delicious crab sandwich, while eating outside and watching the scenic harbor with its colorful boats... More

We went here because we read that it has such delicious clam chowder and were terribly disappointed. All we could taste was garlic, and at least one of our group was a true garlic lover. There was no clam flavor or anything else, for that matter because the garlic overwhelmed everything else. AND it was pretty pricey. We ended up... More

Apparently this restaurant has the best clam chowder ever. Hmm.. guess being a native of RI, I must disagree. Perhaps if they didn't overload it with black pepper it could have been much more to my liking. Their chili was really good!!

This REALLY a crab shack, but it is not cheap. We had crab sandwiches and new England clam chowder. The crab is completely plain, served on white rolls that re more or less like hot dog buns (with a mayo-based sauce), BUT the crab is so fresh and delicious that nothing more is needed. This can only be done when... More
