Welcome to the Ship Bottom Shellfish Restaurant
Since 1981, Ship Bottom Shellfish has been a family operated restaurant under the ownership of Ginna and Bob Nugent. As children, Ginna and Bob both summered on Long Beach Island, constantly surrounded by seafood. Ginna’s father was a fisherman out of Viking Village and owned Cassidy’s Fish Market in Barnegat Light, still run within the family. Bob began as a local seafood distributer with one thought in mind; to serve the freshest, highest quality seafood available, prepared simply and at an honest price. Since starting with a clam wholesale operation out of a small shack on the Causeway near Cedar Bonnet Island in the 70’s, Ginna and Bob's fleet has grown to four locations spread throughout Southern New Jersey. Rooted in their combined experience with seafood, we can ensure the freshest seafood. Read More>>
