“Great Biloxi restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

My husband and I went out for dinner and drinks and chose Half Shell Oyster House based upon user reviews. We ordered the Filet Orleans with a cup of gumbo and the Almond Encrusted Chicken with the potatoes and asparagus. Everything was very good and our waitress was friendly. Definitely one of the best options in the Biloxi area.

Love the atmosphere. Such a chill place to unwind and enjoy good seafood. The drink menu is impressive here. The food never disappoints!

“chargrilled oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I went to the restaurant specifically for the chargrilled oysters, and I was not disappointed. They were excellent. The firecracker shrimp was satisfactory, but the oysters were perfect!

“good...not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

in a historic building in the very tiny old-town, downtown of Biloxi (right across from the Hard Rock Casino and hotel....) this is clearly a popular hangout for locals. Probably better if you stick with beer or cocktails - - the wines by the glass had been open for awhile. Service was unbelievably fast -- we felt that we were being rushed out - - although there was no-one waiting to get in. we were still working on our plate of oysters, when both mains arrived....so the mains sat on the table getting cold while we tried to race through our appetizer. THe food was okay - - fish was fresh but nothing outstanding. We were in and out in 40 minutes....would not return.
