Everything about The Half Shell is great! Atmosphere is fun, rowdy but in a cool and classy way. Food is phenomenal especially the green tomato appetizer and the oysters bienville. Raspberry infused martini.. Unbelievable. Service is great. Ask for Dave; he's a cool waiter.

We were disappointed our visit wasn't up to current rating. The chargrilled Oysters New Orleans & blackened redfish were good but not exceptional. The gumbo was lukewarm at best. The side dishes of fried okra & cheesy grits were just ok. Don't bother with the bread pudding, especially since it took 25 min to be delivered to us. Cannot recommend... More

Super crowded that night so wasn't expecting anything great, but that wasn't the case at all! It was a 5 star experience. The drinks, the food and the service were some of the best I've ever had as an overall experience. The four of us had the seafood pot pie, the ribeye, the grilled red snapper and the royal reds...

I ate here with 7 friends for lunch. It was a little busy to say the least. We had to wait a little longer than we would have liked. It would have not been a problem if we weren't on our lunch break, because I'm sure we all would have had a drink. I was talked into getting the shrimp... More

My steak had so much flavor, was tender, and cooked to perfection. The sides were great too! (asparagus & potatoes). To top it off we had the BEST service from Duane. Highly recommend!!

My husband and I recently ate dinner her with my parents. We usually like very different types of food. All four of us ordered different meals. All were great! Dinners ordered were fried oysters, fried shrimp, fried crab claws and I had steak and sautéed shrimp. I was a little skeptical to order the steak but it was extremely tender... More

Excellent oysters. The main dish made us regret not choosing a banal salad. To get the bill and then the receipt of the credit card we have to wait long. So we just signed the amount without any gratuity. Now on the cc statement we find the amount increased by a good tip ...! We have open a claim. The... More

Best royal red shrimp ever, sometimes they've had lobster. There charbroiled as well as their raw oysters are DEVINE! Everyone must experience this truly wonderful atmosphere, it once was a bank, you can even see where the old safe vault formerly was!
