We really enjoyed our meal. We sat at the bar with no wait and enjoyed delicious cocktails. I had the pink pearl martini and it and the service was wonderful. We had raw and charbroiled oysters for starters and both were great. My husband had the ribeye and it was phenomenal. I had the grouper lobster oscar and it too,... More

Visited late afternoon for drinks and appetizers. We sat at the bar downstairs right by the guys who were shucking and cooking the oysters. Great view and entertainment. My husband had never tried oysters and was reluctant, but they offered a sample for him and we ended up ordering a dozen (cooked, of course)! They were delicious! Bartender was friendly... More

Food is excellent but a little pricey for the serving sizes. All in all a recommend. The seafood is the key to your dining experience.

Our trip lasted two days in Biloxi and we ate at Half Shell Oyster House two times. We sampled a lot of their food. The best are of course oysters, their signature salad, and their sweet potato dish, We ordered the sweet potato dish both times. The service was excellent and very friendly and helpful. We are going to return... More

I had been thinking about oysters all day and really enjoyed the ones here tonight. I started with six on the half shell and they were great. The sauce and horseradish was the perfect accompaniment. I ordered a Caesar Salad with six Beinville oysters to be followed by a half dozen chargrilled ones. My oyster quest was complete, until tomorrow.... More

Not impressed with their call ahead system as our eventual wait wasn't really reduced any. But the good service and GREAT food made up for it. The Oysters Sampler is a must to start with and I'll warn you if you've never had them (as I had never had) -- the Charbroiled oysters are AMAZING! My wife had the Royal... More

My husband and I went for happy hour. Great vodka martini! Decided to order the chargrilled oyster sampler.... Being from New Orleans area and used to good food, the oysters didn't disappoint. Actually, they were phenomenal. I couldn't decide which one I liked the best. If you love chargrilled oysters... This is the place to go. It is also neat... More

There is usually a long wait time for seating, but it is well worth it! One of the best places to eat in the area. We have dined at the one in Gulfport on more than one occasion, but there is another location in Biloxi now.

Visited there for lunch on New Year's Eve and it was just fabulous. Food, cocktails and service beyond exceptional. Full lunch with cocktails for four under $100.00 and the best shrimp and grits we have ever had. Don't miss this local jewel if you are in Biloxi.
