We went on a slow Monday afternoon, around 1 p.m. We were seated promptly, and our waiter quickly took our drink and app order. They have several local beers on tap, and I have heard the margaritas are fantastic, but we decided to stick with water on this trip. I ordered the Royal Reds with the Sweet Potato Creme Brûlée,...

We had a great time at the Half Shell Restaurant! It is in walking distance of the Beau Rivage Spa and Casino and the Hard Rock Casino. The Waitress was great and the food to die for. The atmosphere was really great in that it is in an old house setting. Casual but also classy. They manage to do this... More

This restaurant was recommended by several people and staff at the Palace Resort. Our golf group (5 Golfers) went here for dinner and I know that we will be returning to this restaurant on our trip next year. I will be taking my wife to this restaurant when we go to Biloxi later this year.

Full house on a Wednesday night, that says somethin right there. After 2 weeks of traveling I longed for that home cooked appeal even if a restaurant was my only venue, good food is by far my largest vice and the Oyster House didn't disappoint. Oysters Bienville and the Filet Orleans are must have dish. 5 stars.

I am a picky seafood critic... with the gulf right there, you have to have fresh seafood. The quality of the product, the amount of food and the taste was impeccable. I was very surprised as I've gotten some great seafood in Biloxi. Half Shell gives them all a run for their money. I had the Red Fish special with... More

We were prepared for really great food. We thought the royal reds were delicious. The redfish was OK. The salads were OK. The Cajun potatoes that were fried and sprinkled with parmesan were greasy and really not very good. We wouldn't go out of our way to come back

We visit the Gulf Coast quite often and like to try the many different resturants in the area. Alot of choices when you add in all the Casino Resturants. The place itself has great atmosphere. Very much old Biloxi in feel and look. But, if you dine on the second floor the stairs are fairly steep. There is a bar... More
