Once they moved from their previous location, and I guess they changed their chefs as well, their food quality went down to the bottom of the sea.

We went by to enjoy our favorite clam chowder, only to find a "for sale" sign on the door! There was a notice from the Sheriff posted on the door, which led us to believe that there might have been a foreclosure. Too bad! They really DID have fabulous clam chowder!

Nothing especially stood out for me on the menu or after we ordered. It sort of reminded me a chain restaurant or a kitchy diner.

Last visit we got an AMAZING eggs Benedict. Lots of crab, amazing spicy hollandaise. This time - inattentive service, thin, watery hollandaise -won't be back. Inconsistent food at these prices is unacceptable.

We stopped by for a hangover cure for breakfast and had a great time. Not a lot of tables but it was perfect for our small group. French toast was huge and eggs were cooked to order. Great views of the bay (when you can see it) and this satisfied our hungry and non food snob crew. Diner food style... More

Dinner is very mediocre but earlier meals are good. Good view from dining room and easy to park. Not a sterling menu but adequate. Loved our breakfast but they aren't hard to mess up.

In the area in vacation. Five of us stopped here for lunch. We had a variety of appetizers, a burger, black snapper and fish and chips. The food was all very good. The fries were a little greasy but everything else was excellent. The cod in the fish and chips was super light and very tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meal.... More

Overlooking beautiful Bodega Bay, Sandpiper offers a casual family atmosphere and dining experience with upscale, casual cuisine. Sandpiper is a place for everyone and we still have the best chowder in town!Chef Dominique Rooney is no longer at Sandpiper Restaurant as of October 13, 2013.
