This place is terrible. There is no kitchen. Just a row of microwaves toasters and crockpots. My friend shrimp Poboy was frozen prebreaded shrimp that were reheated in the microwave in front of me. I almost walked out. This is a hotdog place. Maybe they are ok. You only need a microwave and a toaster for that anyway. To be... More

I've eating at the Half Shell about a half dozen times. I go there only for the oysters. Let me begin by saying that I agree with other reviewers who find the atmosphere and decorum of the place to be unclean. The place seems to cater more for the people coming in for hot dogs than oysters, and I too,... More

Poor selection of hot dogs. Inferior quality. Needs to upgrade to a quarter pounder, a foot long, a sausage, etc. Practically no selection.

Had a great hot dog topped with chili and cheese! A side of a dozen oysters and a cold beer. Does not get any better. My kids loved the friendly girls that worked there, and the atmosphere felt just right for my large family and young kids. Need a place that if something spills, it is not the end of... More

We went to the half shell in newnan today and I was very disappointed. There were 3 people on staff and they all acted like they hated being there. We even over heard the big guy say he'd rather be somewhere else. The actual dog and bun were good, but that was definitely not chili on top and I didn't... More

First of all I love hot dogs, it is hard for me not to like any hot dog so all things being said the dog was about an average quality dog. I don't go to restaurants for an average dog though, I expect it to be a Kosher hot dog that I can't get anywhere else. The toppings were ok,... More

We came in for hot dogs but didn't realize this place served authentic New Orleans style food. Service was great. Food was affordable and atmosphere was very casual. This is definitely one of our new favorite spots!

My husband and I fell in love with The Half Shell on our first visit to the downtown location. We even had our rehearsal dinner for our wedding at the East Newnan spot. The owners were so accommodating for our large group. It was just what we wanted: a laid back good time for everyone without paying an arm and... More
