“Great Food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Had to wait around an hour to get seated but well worth the wait. We very much enjoyed the appetizers and the entree was a steak for us that was cooked perfect. Will go back every time i am in Biloxi.

“Great Surf and Turf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Dined at the Half shell Oyster House on Nov 15. We had the surf and turf. The steak and crab were excellent. However the salad appeared pre made, not what you would expect. Still I would highly recommend a stop here.

“Second Timer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We went to the restaurant on advise from other's on the trip, and loved it. The two story restaurant is in walking distance of the Beau Rivage and has a wide variety of items on the menu. We stayed with seafood items and everything was tasty and fresh. I had oysters on the half shell and wished I'd ordered more then 6! My wife had Gulf shrimp and said they were also the best she's ever had as they had a very light coating. Definitely will go back when in the area.

“Best Crab Cakes”

We were pleasantly surprised with the delicious crab cakes. No fillers. Simply packed with crab. Mmmmm. It will be a year before we are back in the area and I will head straight here. Very good

“Great Fresh Seafood at a resonable Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I took a Business group to Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi for Dinner. As you would expect, the group had a variety of appetizers, entrées, and deserts and all were very happy with their selections. The group 2 days later were still talking about how good the food was at Half Shell Oyster House. I concurred and will definitely plan to go back.
