We ate at this restaurant based on rave reviews from locals and Trip Advisor reviews. We did not have the great experience other diners have had. One of our two cocktails was garnished with thawed, pale, frozen fruit. We ordered the Tempura Battered Asparagus appetizer which was fine and the Royal Reds Shrimp which were overcooked and falling apart. We had Oysters and the Crab Cake special for dinner, both of which were average. We did have a waitress who was absolutely fabulous. Based on others reviews, if I return to Biloxi, I would give this restaurant another try.

In an optimal location and nice building, definitely has the feel of a nicer restaurant. Food is overall above average with the highlight being the oysters of course. I recommend the sampler.

We went for lunch. My husband had the broiled oysters which he had never tried. LOVED THEM. I ordered the crab cakes over asparagus . Wonderful ! The service was excellent. The restaurant was nice.

Dinner with friends at the Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi, Mississippi was a delightful treat. Grilled oysters (many flavors to choose from) were a new and yummy treat. BIG REDS are fat juicy shrimp served in the fashion of lobster with butter dipping sauce. After you try the first one your taste buds will dance with delight. Many more items on the menu....I have to go back and try something new.

This restaurant is part of a group, their are four. We decided to try this one while staying at the Beau Rivage casino. The food is very good. As others noted, try the royal reds. The oysters are delicious. They will give you the choice of dinning upstairs or main floor. Choose upstairs! By the window. Nice views and a real french quarter feel. The prices are reasonable. Wine selection is limited, but good prices by the glass or bottle.

Definitely the place to go if you wish to escape casino life for a few hours.
