On a business trip and in need of a good dinner this place outdid itself. Set high on a hill with views of the Pacific Ocean. Spectacular sunset followed by the best dinner ever. The wait staff was exceptional - my server was Erika. She...More

We both had bowls of clam chowder, 4.5 stars. Ditto the house coffee. Most if not all food in this restaurant is advertised as organic. Portions were ample, thus the value was great. Much better atmosphere, view, and value than some of the better known...More

Food was good - I had the clam chowder and a cheeseburger with avocado. Waitress was a little grumpy, could have been having a bad day. Pricing was decent.

We enjoyed this restaurant's ambiance. We sat at a table with a view of the bay. The menu was great. The food was very tasty but not hot enough. Coffee nice and strong. Staff friendly. We would try this place again

What can I say, went to the Sandpiper a year later. Still a C- operation. If your staying in Bodega Bay for an extended time you go everywhere.

The Sandpiper Restaurant was well reviewed on Trip Advisor and very close to our lodging so we checked it out. The decor is very cool/hip/seaside/bistro but relaxing at the same time. We ate out on the enclosed porch which has a view of the bay....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.
