It's a Chargers bar or I'd skip it... With that said, you know I know a little about being dissapointed...LoL The food is ok and the prices are high for what you get. The staff is friendly enough though... Go Chargers!

I liked the place better when the emphasis as you walked in was more on dining then on action play machines. Now it tends to be noisy. I also like the Karoke singing on certain nights whcih may still happen? But best of all, I like their oyster poboys. They always have shrimp but I ask for oysters and the... More

On 02/26/2012 I was at half shell (beach house) on a date with my husband. I ordered easy food to digest because I'm on Kidney Dialysis and in my spinach and artichoke dip there were shards of broken ceramic plate. YES, I swallowed some, and spit some out. I gave a chunk to my waitress. She informed me here was... More

If you like Shrimp or Oysters this is your place to go. They have a huge menu of Seafood items and are prepared perfectly. Try the Shrimp Diablo served with Pasta. They have a Seafood Sampler that has some of everything. It’s perfect for a group to snack on and enjoy a glass of wine or draft beer. They have... More

Our first visit at this facility was with a large group. Wine was ordered and separate tabs monitored. We attempted to pay the server for our wine prior to being seated for dinner. She said she could not take our money until she completed serving all wine orders - WHAT - you can't take our money???? We were seated and... More

This restaurant has an excellent view of the city. The food and service are great. There is a pool table upstairs for fun and the service is great.

I have been to Half Shell 4 times and although it is a beautiful place, the service is terrible. I live just down the street from it,and i won't go there anymore. Every time I went, the service was somehow worse than the time before. One trip there, the waitress even apologized for the bad service. My last trip there... More

My freind had been there before and got overcharged for her drinks, and then I went there and they tried to overcharge us for our drinks. They didn't even include the list saying what we got charged for, they just handed us a bill that was double what we should have been charged. They did clear it up, but I... More

The exterior is unassuming and half of the place is a sports bar but don't let that put you off. Everything we had here was great! They had wonderful clam chowder along with perfectly cooked clam strips and good crab cakes. Not what you'd expect in the desert 10 miles from Vegas. The service was friendly and professional. Next time... More
