Had lobsters rolls to go from here and they were as expected delicious. They weren't overly large and came with either fries or cole slaw but the chunks of lobster overflowing in the roll made this a definite must if you are in the area. This place sits along the main drag of LBI and is quite small since it... More

We ate from here two nights in a row - once take out from the menu and once we bought fish and grilled it at home. Both times were very very fresh and great quality food. I had the stuffed flounder take out and it was delicious. My husband liked the crab cakes. The second night we had grouper and... More

Lunch wait on holiday weekend to be expected, but front end seemed discombobulated and not synced with kitchen. This created a little extra wait, but food all came out together and hot. Very good lunch menu and pricing. They probably loose a few turns, so expect the kicks to be resolved very fast. Family and friendly...definitely go!

We have eaten here before. Alway excellent. A bit of a wait bit to be expected. Food was great as always. Tried the scallop special, was perfect.

We ate here twice in the week we stayed in Ship Bottom. The seafood was fresh and prepared just right. It is a BYOB restaurant as many are on Long Beach Island. The parking lot for the restaurant is small but there is street parking around the corner.

Stopped in twice during our stay in LBI. Definitely the best that we tried. Everything was cooked to perfection. Only complain was alcohol wasn't served (since I like a beer with supper) but this is the norm for LBI. Service was very fast and the portions were adequate. Wish I had room for dessert as the menu had some nice... More

Our group of 7 had a delicious meal. In our group from young to old enjoyed scallops, blackened sword fish,shrimp, crab cakes were full of crab not fillers, seafood bisque and new england clam chowder, homemade cole slaw. Wait staff was pleasant, friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend Ship Bottom Shellfish and whenever we are back on the East coast... More
