Great service better food

Went with a group of 8 and they got us in in under 5 minutes. The server was great ask for crazy spice. (Mel b). She helped all our group pick out food since there was a huge age difference. First time trying oysters and had the new orleans oysters. Delicious. Must try in biloxi

My wife and I have been here several times. My favorite is the royal reds in a garlic butter sauce with the cajun boiled new potatoes. My wife has tried the blackened fish and she loved it. They serve local fresh seafood. Good service and great food.

You HAVE to come here. We wondered in on July 5th around 9am. The wait was about 40 min but we quickly found two spots at the upstairs bar. My husband and I had so much fun with fellow patrons and the bartenders. We started with crab cakes and voodoo shrimp, and then had 2 dozen oyster Orleans. It was... More

We took our party of 8 adults to the Half Shell Oyster House on the Saturday night of 4th of July and were greeted by quite a crowd! But the upstairs bar provided drinks, oysters and gumbo while we waited, and we had a table in less time than the hostess had estimated! Our corner round table made for great... More

Honestly, I expected more. We tried several items - the Oyster Sampler, the Shrimp Orleans, Crab Cakes, Fried Asparagus, and Voodoo Wings. The shrimp, crab cakes and asparagus just didn't measure up - especially for the price. The oyster sampler was pretty good. and the kids loved the Voodoo Wings, but for nearly $80 before tip, I wanted to be... More

Started off with fried green tomato crab cake appetizer which was amazing. My husband tried the gumbo which was good. My daughter loved her fried green tomato BLT and fried okra. I ordered the shrimp and oyster po boy with a side of crab and corn bisque. I received the po boy and fried okra but the waitress brought out... More

My husband & I decided to try some place new for his birthday dinner. So happy we chose this place! The atmosphere was upbeat & fun! The food was fabulous! I had the BEST shrimp & grits ever! My husband had the redfish & it was absolutely delicious! If you have room, you must try the cinnamon roll bread pudding.... More

Everything I had at this restaurant was great! I ate there several times while I was in Biloxi. The Orleans oysters are my favorite. I will never eat a raw oyster again after I had these. The Sweet Potato creme brûlée is to die for. Love the sweet tea. Eat at the bar by the shuckers. Very entertaining. Great service,... More
