Last night we went to Half Shell to use a $100 gift certificate. My girlfriend found after we got there that she lost the gift card, but had the receipt. They had never had that happen before and although it took awhile to make a decision, they gave us 2 $50 complimentary coupons. We had very good drinks and great... More

Went with my parents and had a great lunch. We had raw and roasted oysters...all of which was very tasty. Parents loved the shrimp and grits and pasta while I had some of the fried oysters. Loved the Lazy Magnolia from the taps.

My husband and I stopped for dinner on our way into town. We'd been driving for 6 hours, and we were hungry. The service was prompt and polite (ask for Ashley), and the food was good. I enjoyed the shrimp and grits, though the shrimp were those tiny ones, and my husband really liked his voodoo shrimp poboy. We had... More

I've had oysters in New Orleans, Grand Central Oyster Bar,Seattle and Long Island and these were the best ever. Don't pass up the cinnamon roll bread pudding. Our waitress, Laura was a gem.

Cory was AWESOME! We ordered Shrimp and Grits with jalapeno pepper hush puppies, Seafood Pasta with asparagus and gorgonzola butter. The Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan draft beer was a good accompaniment to our meal. Staff was very tuned in and courteous!

The first time we visited the wait was over an hour so we decided to go to the restaurant next door. We eventually came back and the host sat us immediately. She told us that if you're there before 6pm there isn't a wait. The oyster appetizers were each uniquely season giving us a chance to decide how we wanted... More

Good food, great service but a little on the pricey side. Nice place to treat yourself while on vacation.

In the Biloxi area for business, did my homework and visited this place. Very glad I did! Very friendly staff (the young lady bartender was extremely pleasant and helpful), very good food (grilled oysters pretty good for outside of NOLA), and very good beer selection. Sat at the friendly bar, and had a great time. Didn't know this place has... More
