Shellfish

From Virginia oysters to Maine lobsters, these delicacies will have your customer’s taste buds swimming.

Shellfish is arguably the most popular category of seafood — and for good reason.

From crab and lobster to shrimp and clams, our high quality marine delicacies can bring life to any menu. Shellfish especially vary in taste and texture depending on where they’re sourced. That’s why diversity is a top priority for us.

Sam Rust works closely with reputable sources to supply the highest quality shellfish around. We source sustainably from across the map, including the Atlantic Northeast to our own Mid-Atlantic waters. We have lobsters from Maine, crabs from Virginia, clams from the Eastern Shore — and the list goes on.

We offer an expansive live oyster selection, which we source locally from the James River and Eastern Shore, as well as the Northern Atlantic and Pacific Coast. From salty to sweet, and large to cocktail size, we have an oyster that will meet your needs.

Sam Rust Seafood is proud to serve our customers with the highest quality shellfish available in the market. Over the last 80+ years, we’ve refined our process so that you can have the utmost confidence in using our shellfish at your establishment.

Often I’ll talk with my account manager at Sam Rust and they’ll come up with a product that I didn’t know about or you don’t see in the market – which helps keep my menu exciting.
