The clam chowder definitely needs more clams. I had the white chowder, my second visit in 2 years (living in Jackson Hole), and it's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. But again, I didn't find it anywhere close to the chowder served...More

We had heard such good things about this place we had to try it for ourselves and were not disappointed. We tried both the white and red chowders; both werr exquisite. And the crab sandwiches were perfect. We will be back!

Family had red & white chowders - very pleased. I had the albacore sandwich as I am not much of a shellfish person - very good version. Bread is killer. Overall a great experience with everyone else waiting to partake as well.

Whenever we are near Bodega Bay we got to Spud Point. The crab is to die for, fresh caught and prepared perfectly. A bit expensive but the roll, crab and light dressing was the best we have overeaten. And we have lived on the east...More

This was a real find of our trip between Point Reyes and other regions - the detour was well worthwhile to discover and devour these delicious crabs! We got whole cooked crabs and chowder, and then the crab was so delicious that we bought another...More

There is no liquor license. It is a fast casual place with outside picnic tables and only serve non-alcoholic beverages. Food is great so don't let the fact they don't serve alcohol stop you!
