We ate at the Half Shell Oyster House one night while we were in Biloxi and it was real good. It wasn't the first time. We have eaten there several times and it is always good.

Had the Blackened Grouper and my wife had the Crab filled Portobello Mushroom. The Grouper was prepared and served wonderfully well. The fish was served tender on the inside and blackened on the outside. This is difficult for some chefs but the Half Oyster chef completed this meal above standard. Frankly, one of the best meals I have ever had.... More

We love everything about this place - the food, the service and the interior. We had the oyster sampler and fish sampler with a side of the yummy tempura asparagus. Our drinks were refilled continuously during our lunch visit. Try it, you'll love it!

The atmosphere was very nice. The service was fast and friendly. The food was excellent. The lobster bisque was a wonderful start to my meal. The sea food dishes taste delicious.

Besides a little wait because of the time we arrived, we had no complaints. This rating was earned. The restaurant was clean, this customer service was awesome, the restrooms were clean (an important part of the experience for me) and food arrival was prompt. The first visit was so good, we stopped for a to-go order on our departure date.

Wanted some seafood that wasn't fried- portobello mushroom caps stuffed with a seafood medley was excellent- my friend had the shrimp and grits- both excellent! Waitstaff was very knowledgeable about menu items. Would go back again.
