“Great Place to Dine to experience Gulf Coast Seafood”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

The Half Shell Oyster House is a great place to order Gulf Seafood. This place is for you if you like Maine Lobster, but if you like Big Reds with drawn butter or various Oysters on the half shell, then this place is for you. We had Big Reds with drawn butter and the seafood platter. Both were excellent except that they could have been served a bit warmer. Sides of fried Okra and cheddar Cheese Grits work well with any meal.

Near parking is at a premium but there is ample parking within a short distance to the restaurant. They have dining on the 2nd floor, but there is no elevator, so if you are not able to climb some steep stairs, you will have to wait for a first floor table. Well worth the wait!

“Good choice for seafood”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

I ate here in August 2014. I had the blackened grouper, and my wife had the pecan encrusted redfish. Both were very good. Most seafood entrees were around $20. I would definitely recommend Half Shell Oyster House if you're in the mood for seafood in Biloxi.

“Now that is seafood!”

Wife had simple shrimp and I had the deep reds. Both were spectacular! Wish I had eaten there every meal.
