Finally went to this spot as I had a desire for local shrimp. The fried food platters give you plenty of shrimp which is grand. The coating was light and they were golden brown. A great job. The staff from the hostess to the waitress (Hanna) were very professional for a very young staff. This place looks look a a... More

Went to the Savannah Scottish Games. The last night before we left, we stopped in there for shrimp. We had the best shrimp ever. We had so much that we had to take some home. A must stop for Sea Food in the Savannah, GA area

The Shell House has been around many years and it had been 15 years since I had been there. Close to hotels off I-95. I was felt lazy and had already driven 8 hours. This was 3 minutes from my hotel. I had the low country boil. Everything was done in advance as I was served in 5 minutes. The... More

My mom and sister visited the restaurant before me. We live in Charleston so it's about an hour and a half away. It was worth the ride. There was plenty of hot, tasty food. We all had enough leftovers for another meal. The staff was extremely professional. Keep up the great work!

Some friends and I were coming home from a trip to Myrtle Beach. One friend had eaten at the Shell House in the past and insisted that we stop (even though we had to kill a half hour until they opened at 4:00). The place was very clean, the service was excellent and the food was superb! I had some... More

We went to the Shell House for dinner. The place is OK but certainly nothing special. The salad was served in a plastic bowl on a plastic plate with plastic utensils and salad dressing contained in two plastic containers. Salad was ok and fresh. There is a hole in the table and a garbage can underneath. When you finish eating... More
