Dined with family. We met early in the evening to avoid the crowd that was sure to follow. The asparagus tempura was an awesome start to the meal. My steak was cooked perfectly and my table mates enjoyed their stuffed mushrooms and bread pudding as well. We will return.

I came in from California and my wife knew my love for oysters, and she had been to the Biloxi location 1 time recently. There was a wait for 35 minutes on a Friday night which was no problem, I went to the bar on the 1st floor and ordered a drink with her and also ordered the oyster sampler.... More

This is a pretty, quaint little restaurant with great food and service. Hubby had "royal reds" which are HUGE shrimp that taste a lot like lobster. I had a fried green tomato BLT which was quite tasty, and the asparagus with gorgonzola butter was amazing! If you're in Biloxi, you simply must check this place out!

While in Biloxi Mississippi my wife and I as well as two great friends of ours went to the Half Shell Oyster House. It overlooks the Gulf but about 1/4 mile from the shore. It was an old restored type restaurant with an upstairs (where we had our lunch). Prices were reasonable and food delicious.....must try the "Oyster House Plate"... More

We had the most amazing lunch here! Roasted oysters could have kept on coming! One dozen just isn't enough. And then we had the grilled red snapper, grilled asparagus, cheese grits and fried okra. All I can say is it is definitely the BEST of the South!!

A business associate recommended we check out this restaurant during our trip to Biloxi, MS. Excellent service. We arrived without a reservation but were seating promptly in the bar area. We were able to watch the oysters being shucked and the sampler was wonderful. We asked for recommendations and our meal was delicious.

My husband had red royal shrimp which was fantastic and tasted like lobster. I had oyster Rockefeller which was very good. My meal came with sweet potato creme brûlée which was more like dessert, which was ok with me. Service was great. Would love to go there again!
