Great Surf and Turf

Dined at the Half shell Oyster House on Nov 15. We had the surf and turf. The steak and crab were excellent. However the salad appeared pre made, not what you would expect. Still I would highly recommend a stop here.

We went to the restaurant on advise from other's on the trip, and loved it. The two story restaurant is in walking distance of the Beau Rivage and has a wide variety of items on the menu. We stayed with seafood items and everything was tasty and fresh. I had oysters on the half shell and wished I'd ordered more... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the delicious crab cakes. No fillers. Simply packed with crab. Mmmmm. It will be a year before we are back in the area and I will head straight here. Very good

I took a Business group to Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi for Dinner. As you would expect, the group had a variety of appetizers, entrées, and deserts and all were very happy with their selections. The group 2 days later were still talking about how good the food was at Half Shell Oyster House. I concurred and will definitely... More

My initial visit to Half Shell was quite enjoyable. I entered expecting a good experience, and I came away with a smile on my face and the intention to make a return visit as soon as possible. As I commonly do on initial restaurant visits, I selected a few “key” menu items to get a good sample of just how... More

Me & my husband went to biloxi for a short honeymoon & I had read a lot of the reviews from here so I wanted to try it. We started off with the oyster sampler, which was good but not like everybody raved about. & they were expensive so we wouldn't ever order them again. For our meals he got... More

The food here is excellent my companion and I cleaned are plates and will be going back for more. The space is large and a bit noisy but the food overcomes that. Try the crab cakes or the flounder or the fried shrimp as good as any on the coast. The area is quite at night but do not be... More

Always a favorite restaurant when I'm in Biloxi! Good service and great food! I always go early in the evening to avoid the rush. It can get crowded.

I ate here with a group and the food was excellent. I had the flatbread for an appetizer and for the main course I had blackened Mahi Mahi, steamed broccoli, and cajun potatoes. The food was excellent and everyone at my table cleaned their plate. The atmosphere is great and I recommend it.

After the referrals by locals and the reviews and the decor I really wanted to like this place. Not being Oyster fans the Mrs and I had the see food pot pie. I thought it was dry and tasteless and the crust had been pre-made and plopped on top. The Mrs liked it though. What sealed it for me was... More
