The Half Shell is lovcated at Diversey and Orchard in Lakeview directly acroos the street from Pier One. They are located on the lower level of a Brownstone and they have been there since 1958. This place is all about seafood. They only have 48 seats but a 20 seat bar. No frills here, just great seafood. Cash Only, no checks, no credit or debit cards accpeted. A great place for a date or after a Cubs game. Ask the bar tender if they have smoked sturgeon. if so do NOT pass it up, it is AWESOME ! Aside from KING and SNow crab, they have fish platters, hot and cold shrimp, and fried chicken wings. I always have a dozen or two of fresh oysters, shucked fresh. They also have fresh clams. Both yummy. All in all a 10.
