Spouse considers this one of the best we've visited, and I can't disagree. Spouse raves about the "royal reds" shrimp, and I've had the fried shrimp po-boy and the stuffed flounder, both of which were top-notch. Bread on the po-boy was excellent and soft, unlike restaurants which use "hard" bread, and the quantity and quality of the shrimp was superb. Service was excellent. Come during happy hour for $2.50/glass house wine, which was also excellent. The quantity of the wine should be more, but that is my only complaint [don't use "large" wine glasses if you only put wine in 1/3 of it!].
I judge any shrimp po-boy on whether it compares to that served at Harbor View Café in Long Beach, which is the best I've ever had, and I have to say that Half Shell's compares very favorably -- quantity not as much, but quality was very close indeed.
Have also had their shrimp and grits, which is not my favorite dish, but was still very good. Cheese grits w/ the po-boy were excellent, as were the sweet potatoes spouse had.
They also have a location in Hattiesburg, and we've dined there, but consider this one to be the best by far.
They also have a bar area, which you may need if you don't get there early...
Great location, downtown Biloxi, very close to various casinos, though you'll get more for your money here!
