This was one of the best experiences we enjoyed while in Gulfport, MS. Our waiter, Jason, was very informative and just a pleasant person. Highly recommend the bisque, shrimp & grits, and seafood sampler. Will visit again if given the chance!

... in Biloxi. Had dinner here for the first time with several friends. Everyone was pleased to the max. The menu is varied, so if you are not a fan of oysters you should still visit. No one walked away without commenting that their food was great. In fact, we are going back for dinner tonight.

The food was awesome. We ordered boudin balls as an appetizer and they were so good. I had the Royal Reds and WOW is all I can say. They are huge shrimp that taste like lobster. A must try. My husband had gumbo and fried oysters. He thought that they tasted very delicious and would definitely go to eat there... More

I normally have a fantastic opinion of this restaurant. On this visit the food was excellent as always. I had the lemon fish with the Orleans sauce. It was absolutely wonderful. I love following up with a slice of the banana fosters cheesecake. The waiter was pleasant and helpful. The food on this occasion was a little slow to arrive... More

Had the oyster sampler platter and it was awesome, good variety and great taste. Everyone had a different main meal and we shared. Had my first po boy sandwich and I loved it( had the combo shrimp and oyster) side was the sweet potato creme brûlée.

If you are ever in Biloxi area and love seafood, you can't choose a better place that Half Shell Oyster House. I have been there several times and the service is ALWAYS fast and courteous. The food is really good. Each time I visit I will start out with a dozen oysters and they have always been FRESH and tasty.... More

This place is great! We got seated upstairs which was a hike! So if you arent a steady walker or like doing stairs ask to be seated on the main level. The food is amazing! We tried the oyster sampler and loved each one! The big red shrimp were amazing too!

1/2 Shell is consistently good, happy service and local seafood make for a great lunch. Close to the Hard Rock it's easy to find and in walking distance. They have a yummy special each month, worth a try.
