There’s a little town along the coast in Northern California just north of San Francisco where Alfred Hitchcock filmed the famous movie The Birds. It’s called Bodega Bay.
It’s a beautiful area along the coast to drive around where the city has a small town feel who’s economy is tied to the coastal waters. You can see the fishing boats in their docks in the bay across the street from a tiny yet great restaurant called Spud Point Crab Company. They source the crabs right across the street from their own small fleet of fishing boats.
Spud Point Crab Company is located at 1860 Westshore Rd, Bodega Bay, CA. Phone (707) 875-9472 Website http://www.spudpointcrab.com
The restaurant is small and unassuming, it’s off the main drag next to harbor. You can’t miss it, just look for the crowd of people. There is only seating outside on a couple of table but it always works out where someone is leaving just as you’re getting your order. Or it makes great to-go food too.
I’ve been coming here for years and always get the same thing – the crab sandwich (but the home made clam chowder is outstanding too).
Now I’ve had crab sandwiches before and I’ve had them all around the USA. But this restaurant in Bodega Bay has THE best crab sandwiches I’ve ever tasted in my life. I easily could eat these by the dozens, they are absolutely delicious.
Just look at that last photo below…that is pure buttery crabby goodness on a roll, two thumbs up!
If you are ever in Bodega Bay and you’re hungry, you gotta try a crab sandwich or bowl of clam chowder at Spud Point Crab Company, you will be happy you did.
