Tasty drop in spot. The Crab sandwich was basically UNADULTERATED crabmeat!!! The roll was fresh, and just the right texture. Such a pleasure. We also enjoyed the clam chowder. No place to sit except outside, which is great for good weather. . . just be prepared to take out if not. Would definitely recommend.

There is probably better chowder somewhere, but I have not found it. These guys do it right, I guarantee. Outdoor seating. Nice view of the marina. Crab sandwich is to die for. Only downside is seeing ugly Americans let the wind blow their napkins away and letting them go.

We had read the reviews and weren't disappointed - the chowder was really very good. My parter had a sand which that was only ok so maybe stick to chowder and crab! Not the most friendly folk the day we visited but totally fine. We were there off season - it had just been raining- so couldn't use their outdoor... More

This place has the best clam chowder I've ever eaten in my life. I have eaten clam chowder all over the world and I think Spud point beats everybody hands down. If you're ever in Bodega Bay go there you won't regret it

They come for the super fresh crab, whole (cleaned, for free, tip encouraged), or for the crab sandwich (1/4 lb of the freshest, sweetest, crab meat you're likely to taste). We've been coming to Bodega Bay for years and always see the line...and have never stopped. Until today. (The wait isn't that bad it turns out.) Try it!

Forget about the fancy restaurant in town, just come down and crab a crab and dissect it right by the water. Only way to be sure you get a good crab. Only wish, it they can also serve or at least reboil quickly, so we could have a warm meal :)

This place is small with only outside tables to eat at, it maybe a bit windy. We took our food back to our hotel and found it was still nice and hot. The clam chowder is great with a generous portion. The crag sandwich is also very good, not huge but has lots of crab and has a nice sauce,... More

Stopped by to try their chowder and have some crab. We tried a crab sandwich and crab cocktail which were good but not extraordinary. We were impressed with the chowder which had lots of clams, a creamy white soup but none of the cheap ingredients like potatoes -- it had a smooth, buttery flavor that left us craving for more....

We came here as the reviews were great. But I was not impressed with the clam chowder. I like their crab bread better but it wasn't that special. The crab bread at Fishetarian was so much better.

Was there on a Saturday at 11:30. Little windy, small line. Ordered the clam chowder and lobster roll. The Lobster roll had good flavor and soft bread. The Clam Chowder wasn't creamy and tasted like it had too much onions.

Thank Toan D
