Just found this place several months ago. Now we return every time we are on the coast.m great oysters...raw or grilled. Good fresh seafood. Bananas Foster cheesecake is outstanding. Highly recommend this place.

The half shell Biloxi is a great place. Ive been several times and enjoyed every meal there. My favorite item is the shrimp and grits. They serve BBQ shrimp on top of what I would term "grit cakes" and it's just yummy. All of their sides are delicious and dessert was good too. Bananas Foster cheesecake was tasty and rich.

Atmosphere is casual/nice. You'll see people in all sorts of clothes. But, it's nice-ish. So, don't be a slob.

Sometimes it's hard to get in, but, call ahead seating can help.

The only negative I have is that only fathers dish, the same as mine, was too cool. Not cold, but, not really hot. Mine wasn't overly hot that evening either, but this was the first time we've ever had a less than ideal experience there.

I highly recommend it.

I ate here with a group of eight people. The service staff had no trouble giving us separate checks and provided good service. My food was good, although I felt the char-broiled oysters were a bit over-seasoned. The martini I ordered was excellent.

My husband and I met our daughter-in-law to have lunch here this past week. It was our first time to eat here and we had a very scrumptious lunch! We started out with appetizers of Oysters Rockefeller and blue crab cakes and cups of seafood gumbo. Our entrees included seafood pasta dishes. We ended the meal, sharing a delicious piece of Key Lime Pie! The service here was polite and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our unhurried lunch at this excellent restaurant.
