We're from Wisconsin, and have traveled to the Gulf Coast a couple of times, always enjoying the seafood we don't get at home. We had eaten at Half Shell one other time and really enjoyed it, so were excited to try again. We drove by...More

I love food at Half Shell. I only wish that I could eat it. They seem to think that all Cajun food has to be hot and spicy. I think that there is one thing that I can eat that won't set me on fire....More

Went for lunch upon arriving at the hotel. We had the Oyster Sampler and it was delicious! Then we had the Royal Reds and Blackened Redfish. Always great service and top quality seafood. We eat here everything we are in Biloxi.

The raw oysters on the half shell were salty and delcious. The Ahi Tuna special was very good as well. Stick with the bottled beer as it is much colder than the draft beer.
