Stopped here with friends for lunch. We heard it was very good. I ordered the fried shrimp with a side order of turnip greens (how often do you see turnip greens on a menu?). On the gulf coast, at good restaurants, you know your going to get gulf shrimp and not some nasty imported stuff. Shrimp is one of my... More

We just hosted 30 people for a lunch and used the upstairs landing area overlooking the main restaurant. We had a mix of visitors & locals and the opinion was united...great food & service. We were really impressed with the menu diversity; something for everybody, sandwiches, salads, dinner entrées and specials. Pricing was quite reasonable. This is definitely a good... More

Took a customer here on a recent business trip to the coast. Service was excellent and so was the food. Really enjoyed the Crab Cake and Fried Green Tomato appetizer. Prices were reasonable. Suggest calling ahead to get your name on the list.

In town for my niece's wedding and celebrating my birthday. We had multiple appetizers starting with the oyster sampler, then came the royal red shrimp followed by the crab cakes along with a nice bottle of wine. The service was excellent and the was great. Thank you "half shell" for the incredible meal and service.

I ate dinner here with my family and everything we ordered was awesome! I don't think we left any food on our plates and even ordered some dessert. I had a Caesar salad, crab cakes and cheese grits which were all great. I also tried the crab claws and fried okra, both delicious. We only had to wait about 10... More

My wife and I had dinner and drinks here on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014. The atmosphere was great. It has three levels of dining and we were on the upper level. We had a couple of drinks before ordering and I have never seen such fast service. Almost before we finished asking for the drinks, they were delivered. They have... More

Went there for dinner on July 10 2014. It appeared they were preparing for a large party. We were ask if we would mind going upstairs. Unfortunately I am unable to climb a long flight of stairs. We were then seated in a raised area a few steps up which I was able to do. After sitting there over 15... More
