“YUMMY......”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We stopped after our trip to the outlet mall. The food was WONDERFUL!! The staff was GREAT!! We had never been here and our waitress really helped us out. We tried oysters for the first time and they were really good, I had the ROYAL REDS and they were to die for! My mom had the grilled flounder w/crab. She really liked the grilled flounder. We both had the new potatoes (cant remember the name) they were spicy but really good. We had Bananas Foster Cheesecake....YUMMY!!! The bill was very reasonable.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Been here a couple of times. The oysters are wonderful. And the shrimp. I am used to shrimp and grits where the grits are creamy with cheese and butter and garlic. This is served as a grit "cake" with a red sauce over it. Could not eat it. Everything else was good though. Always busy and a line to wait to eat. Will go back to try something else!

“Great place to celebrate!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My 13 year old wanted a good steak for her birthday dinner and they did not disappoint! Charbroiled oysters, filet, ribeye, grilled Redfish were all outstanding! Waitress was very attentive. Beautiful building as well. Seems to be a very hip place. Call ahead and have them put your name on the wait list as they do not accept reservations. Must go once in your life!

“Pleasant downtown location”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We are locals. Half Shell is relatively new to us. Had lunch on one occasion. Atmosphere was great. Service was prompt and efficient. And the food was very good, including the price.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We ate there twice on our vac. to Biloxi. Had the Oyster sampler which is oysters fixed 4 different ways. All very good. the next time we went had a dozen of the Orleans oysters, we liked them the best. For boiled shrimp they are called Reds very large and good boiled shrimp, if you eat here and like boiled shrimp must try. For drinks they fix the best Pina Colada I have ever had. I had four of them and wanted more and they have a pretty good kick to them. Everything was excellent, a little pricey but worth it.
