My sisters and I were visiting Biloxi the end of April. Miss Carla from The Train Tour, recommended this restaurant. We stopped in that evening for dinner and LOVED it! Wonderful atmosphere and outstanding food. I especially loved the oysters! We enjoyed it so much we went back a few nights later. On this evening, they had several huge parties... More

We ate at this restaurant based on rave reviews from locals and Trip Advisor reviews. We did not have the great experience other diners have had. One of our two cocktails was garnished with thawed, pale, frozen fruit. We ordered the Tempura Battered Asparagus appetizer which was fine and the Royal Reds Shrimp which were overcooked and falling apart. We... More

In an optimal location and nice building, definitely has the feel of a nicer restaurant. Food is overall above average with the highlight being the oysters of course. I recommend the sampler.

We went for lunch. My husband had the broiled oysters which he had never tried. LOVED THEM. I ordered the crab cakes over asparagus . Wonderful ! The service was excellent. The restaurant was nice.

Dinner with friends at the Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi, Mississippi was a delightful treat. Grilled oysters (many flavors to choose from) were a new and yummy treat. BIG REDS are fat juicy shrimp served in the fashion of lobster with butter dipping sauce. After you try the first one your taste buds will dance with delight. Many more... More

This restaurant is part of a group, their are four. We decided to try this one while staying at the Beau Rivage casino. The food is very good. As others noted, try the royal reds. The oysters are delicious. They will give you the choice of dinning upstairs or main floor. Choose upstairs! By the window. Nice views and a... More

The Half Shell is becoming my go-to place for dinner when I'm in Biloxi. The food is delicious, and the prices are extremely reasonable (especially when compared with what the casinos/resorts charge for the exact same plate). The restaurant doesn't take reservations from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on weekends to leave space for walk-ins. We strolled in at around 6:30 p.m.... More

This restaurant has 3 locations (Gulfport, Biloxi, and Hattisburg) We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived for lunch. We were seated immediately, and the server was right there ready to help us decide what to have. She offered several options and gave us her opinion as to her favorites and what was good. We had the Royal Reds (big, sweet... More
