Came here with friends who wanted fish. Lots of choices from local catch supplied by fishermen. There's not much for people who can't ear sea food, but then again, the place is designed around fish..

Haven't been to a Shells in over 15 years. It was better than I remember. Awesome service and delicious food! I can't wait to go back again. They have lunch specials you just can't beat! $8.99 for shimp pasta and a salad. Amazing!

Visited Shells in a group. 5 adults, a teen, and 3 children 9,6, & 4. Primarily seafood. Interior is somewhat generic. Staff is friendly, courteous, and efficient. My grilled tilapia was good. Seemed to be a family friendly environment.
