Had the shrimp and grits and the crabcakes. Both were excellent, as with the Bloody Mary. Friendly service, good portions and casual location.

We returned to Half Shell after not eating there for three, four months. The crab cake was outstanding. Flavoring was perfect, perfectly cooked. Far surpasses all crab cakes in St Simons. A seated bar guest from Maryland said it was the best, also—closest to Maryland’s famous cakes. Service was great.

Everything was Absolutely Outstanding. We had the Crab Cakes. Our friend had the Crab Bisque.
Be sure to get the Bacon wrapped Green Beans. They are Amazing.
Great service. Good drinks. Friendly folks that greet you coming and going.
You can’t go wrong with this stop!

Seated quickly & our server, Grace, was so congenial! We enjoyed the red snapper topped with panko, crab meat, & lemon butter sauce...EXCELLENT. The bacon wrapped green beans & Cole slaw were equally tasty. Our compliments to the Chef! This was our best dining experience over our 5-day visit to St Simons!
