Sometimes you just need to get away from the Casinos and have a nice dinner. This is the place. We had wonderful dinner and it was oh so convenient to get to. It is just a couple of blocks off of Casino row. We had a car and drove but from the Beau or the Hard Rock it is an... More

Fair prices. Diverse menu. Awesome oyster selections. (We had a dozen Oyster Bienville...GREAT!) Generous Shrimp Po-Boy. Delicious seafood potpie. Good service. Half Shell Oyster House was recommended by our craps dealer at the Beau Rivage... CHA-CHING! Yea, Baby! Good stuff. We will definitely go back. I rarely give review like this. We were totally impressed.

After reading numerous reviews, my husband and I decided to try this restaurant for lunch when we were in Biloxi. We were delighted with the service, ambiance, and food. We each ordered the raw oysters and salad lunch, had a drink (he had a local beer on tap and I had wine), and shared the yummy cheese grits, made in... More

I would highly recommend this great place! Food is heavenly, staff is super friendly. The oyster cook is awesome, knows what he's doing. He cooks the oysters right in front of you! The atmosphere is great, reminds me of old era New Orleans! This has to always be my favorite part of going to Biloxi. I'm from Mobile where there... More

My wife and I and another couple needed a break from the casino, so we visited the Half Shell Oyster House for "Linner" about 3:30pm on a cool February Monday. 3 out of 4 were not crazy about oysters, but they agreed to come anyway. The place was not very busy so we sat at the downstairs bar. The staff... More

We had dinner here based on a recommendation and the reviews we saw here! We were NOT disappointed. As a matter of fact, our experience exceeded our expectations! The Top Shelf Margarita was the best we have ever had! The oysters were excellent and I have run out of words to describe the crab cakes, grilled asparagus and steak! We... More

My husband and I discovered the Half Shell Oyster House when visiting Biloxi almost a year ago. We were so pleased with the quality and amazing food that we ate there every day. The oysters are totally awesome any way they prepare them, along with everything else we have selected. Since that first trip about a year ago, we have... More
