Lots of choices but my favorite is the Orleans flavored oysters. Try the sample platter so you can do all the flavors. Hubby and I now just order a large one of the Orleans flavor. So good!

i liked the atmosphere, very eclectic setting in historic building. however, we (husband and myself) were disappointed with the dinner. it was, though, salvaged by the excellent service and attention that the staff AND manager made, when i asked for something slightly different than the standard preparation of grilled fish listed on menu. I appreciate his approach to the table... More

The atmosphere, the service and the food was great! We started with oysters on the half shell and my husband had the seafood platter with a side of gumbo. I had the shrimp orleans. The food was delicious. My favorite was our after dinner drinks of the Half Shell bloody mary and cafe Half Shell. My husband says it is... More

Me and wife went there for our Birthday dinner (yes,we have birthday on same day!!) and this restaurant didn't disappoint.The sampler platter of oysters is to die for. Will definitely go there when in the area.

This probably wasn't the best choice for us because I'm allergic to shellfish and my husband doesn't care for any kind of seafood. The woman at the hotel told us they had a wide selection compared to other restaurants and this would probably be our best choice. I had yellow fin tuna and my husband had steak. Both were very...

Went 9/25/14 with my wife and mother in law. We had two food allergies to with around (dairy and spicy foods)... And the food was amazing. Exceptional service, and the food was... Wow. We all shared two orders of the grilled oysters... And they were great - even for someone that didn't like oysters (me). Their ceasar salad was good,... More

This is our first visit to Biloxi and we stopped here today for lunch. Everything was wonderful and the waitress, Laura was great. I had the shrimp & grits with a side of turnip greens. My husband had the seafood pie. Everything was great and we had bread pudding for dessert. This is well worth the visit and we plan... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and to take a break from the casino. Had the fried oysters and were some of the best I have ever had and I am from Louisiana! Also had the Cajun Oyster Martini which was excellent. Excellent service from our waiter Brice and walking distance from Beau Rivage. Will definitely be back next time... More

The only thing better than the food (oyster platter, shrimp and lobster dip and seafood bisque with picture perfect strawberry lemonade martinis) was the service and attention provided by Mel B. This will be out first stop on our next Biloxi vacation!

Our group of five had a great time. We started with a dozen raw oysters and the oyster sampler. Both were really good. The staff recommended the redfish orleans. We were not disappointed. One fo us had a pecan crusted fish that was also fabulous. The wait staff was fun and attentive. Highly recommend the place.
