The food was amazing. The waitstaff not too too friendly. Just there to get their job done. We left 10% tip. I just can't stress enough how amazing the food was plus the variety was abundant. The only thing I didn't like is we had to climb stairs. I had a recent hip replacement and it was really hard climbing... More

On Saturday evening, August 13, we celebrated a friends 50th birthday starting with dinner at the Half Shell restaurant in the Hard Rock Hotel...it met and exceeded our expectations! Our wait was minimal due to calling ahead and requesting a spot on the 'preferred seating' list...our meal, from seafood to steak, was delish...our server was quick, efficient and knowledgeable! Highly... More

20 minute wait for 4 adults, toddler and a baby. They had my favorite beer, Southern Pecan, on tap. Delicious oysters! Great atmosphere. We were in t shirts and shorts, others were dressed much better.

Very quaint old building which Half Shell has worked itself into. While the surroundings aren't important, the food is great! The fried green tomatoes with crab sauce--oh my goodness!! Please as for their bread with your meal. We eat at Half Shell whenever we're in Biloxi and rave about it to anyone who'll listen to us.

I first visited this restaurant last year and again this year and it's the best seafood and bar in biloxi!! I would recommend this if you want to take your wife or girlfriend out to a nice dinner!! But a little expensive but worth it!

My husband and I first ate at the Gulfport location back in 2015 (yes, we are locals-how we had never tried this spot before is beyond me!) due to some comp coupons that I had received through working at the Clarion. We fell in love! The atmosphere is fantastic, and the food is even better. We love trying a different... More

The gumbo is second to none. Their seafood is average as well as the portions. The seafood platter looked small for $28. Their service is spectacular as well as management. They made sure we were taken care of. Now if they could only cook some better food.

This may be the best restaurant on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! My wife and I have stop by here several times on our trips to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the food is always great. Many choices but our favorite is the Royal Reds. We highly recommend this restaurant!
