My first thought was, wow, this place is tiny! We were lucky that our party of three arrived at an off time or else you would probably never get seated. There's no hostess and the waitresses are kind of busy, so there was a bit...More

The wait was an hour and 1/2 for 10. We were offered to be seated at different booths so we did since everyone was hungry and half of our party were children. The restaurant was worth a 2 hr. wait if need be. I am...More

We had a great dinner at Ship Bottom Shellfish, and since we were early, the wait wasn't too long. The only downside is the noise level. It's a small restaurant so it's quite noisy. They cook fish very well and it's delicious!

The mussels over linguine in light red sauce was delicious! Finished the entire bowl which was filled with an extremely generous portion!

Great food. BYOB. Family friendly staff. The wait is worth it. Very small but great. The selection of seafood is fresh and awesome. Needs to be opened year round

I cannot recommend this place enough. I've been coming to Long Beach Island for over 30 years and I can't name a place better to eat then here. I even come down in the "off-season" because their food is that good. It's a small dining...More

This place can't be beat for fresh seafood takeout. Everything is amazing there Including their key lime pie. The staff is always very friendly and helpful and the owners are too. A true gem on LBI
