Great atmosphere and the food is outstanding. Please don't miss the oysters as an appetizer, they are delicious. Our server was very attentive and made great recommendations. I had the Royal Reds, it was described to me as large shrimp that taste sweet like lobster and that's exactly what they tasted like! If you are in Biloxi, this is the... More

Every time my husband and I visit Biloxi we do not miss visiting this restaurant at least once, if not multiple times. I dream of the Royal Reds (amazing shrimp!!) and the Pecan-crusted Redfish. We tried another local restaurant that was more expensive, but were disappointed and wished we had spent our last meal at the Half Shell again. We... More

Outstanding food and service. Sarah was our waitress. Had crab claws and blackened grouper. Both excellent with great sauces.

We were staying close by and this was the better of two seafood places suggested to us. Nice surroundings, a bit loud as busy place with hard surfaces that bounce the talk around. Good local beer selection, varied menu and good wine list made for a very pleasant evening.

Our hotel recommended this lovely place and we were so impressed. We had the blackened redfish with shrimp and crab which is their most popular dish. It was absolutely wonderful! The sides were nothing special but we didn't care. Our waitress was so friendly and efficient. We talked about that meal for days after.

I have been to half shell both in Biloxi & Gulfport and have to say I've yet to have a bad meal. I truly enjoy their charbroiled oysters as well as many of their seafood dishes. You can never go wrong with local catch. Great place to relax and enjoy.

Our flight attendant on our trip to Mississippi recommended this restaurant. She told everyone who would listen how great the food is. Well.. she was absolutely right! The couple with us raved about their oysters. Our wine was superb! I had the bacon and pecan crusted redfish. It might be the best fish I've ever eaten. The service was iffy.... More
