Spud Point Crab Company, owned by Tony and Carol Anello, opened on July 10, 2004. This family operated business is a dream-come-true for Tony and his wife, Carol—Tony is a retired Firefighter and has been commercially fishing since 1970.
Fresh crab and Wild King Salmon is provided by Tony and his son Mark's boats. The "Annabelle" and "Cape Ommaney" are moore right across the street at Spud Pt. Marina. Carol and daughters Lisa and Gina run the store, which is set in a unique 360 square foot shop.
The family provides hot coffee and beverages every morning, along with donuts for the fishermen, locals and visitors. Fishermen use Spud Point Crab Company, which is located right across from Spud Point Marina, as a morning meeting place. We serve hot dogs, chili dogs, and tri-tip sandwiches (the fishermen's favorite), along with hot chili and our famous clam chowder and crab cakes.
Spud Point Crab Company is a truly old style Fishermen's Wharf operation. We catch and smoke our own "Wild King Salmon," which is the best according to all that taste it. You can watch as the live crab go into the large cooker right outside the shop. If you can't wait to take the crab home to eat, picnic tables are provided outside (with a great view of the boats and the bay). You will have use of tools to crack the crab. We provide sauce and lemon.
Please stop by, say hello, and enjoy the home-made chowder, a crab or shrimp cocktail, or the sandwich of the day alongside Sonoma County's beautiful Bodega Bay. Or purchase the catch of the day to take home for dinner.
The views of Bodega Bay, our birds and fishing fleet are fantastic (a few photographs by a local photographer are throughout our site).
In addition to our recent 1st Place in Bodega Bay Travel Tips 2014, in past years, we've placed first in The Press Democrat Readers' Choice for "The best chowder at the coast," and we've won 1st place eight years running at the Annual Bodega Bay Chowder Day!
Thanks to all who voted for us. And if you haven't tried our chowder yet, please stop by and try the chowder or a great crab sandwich or our BBQ Tri Tip.
