Half Shell Oyster House in Biloxi is a happening place. There were at least 2 big birthday parties when we ate there. It is our second time dining in this location and although we enjoyed our first experience, this second visit was better. I had the blackened redfish with fried soft shell crab that came with a salad and one... More

The food is excellent and they have true lunch specials that are less costly. The soups are delicious. My husband enjoyed his seafood pot pie and I finally found a restaurant here that served fresh grouper. I wasn't too impressed with the bread pudding.

We eat here at least twice a month. The food is always delicious with great specials. Menu is extensive and they also do sushi! My favorite dish is the seafood pasta but their soups are also very tasty. I find the prices to be very reasonable. Atmosphere is casual elegance.

This was a short walk from our Hotel. It had been recommended by friends. WONDERFUL waiter !! Excellent service ! We ordered several appetizers which we loved , especially the shrimp. The salad the waiter recommended was really good. I ordered fish and it was good, but I really wish I had ordered the fried shrimp !! Would go back.

This is one of the original restaurants in this small chain. There is also one in the Hard Rock two blocks away. This one is in a nice old building with a lot of southern charm and great ambience. They have many great dishes, we really liked the Royal Reds, the gumbo and bisques, and great grouper and snapper. You... More

Went to the Half Shell on a whim, walking through looking for someplace to eat. So glad I made the choice to stop. The restaurant is quaint, well decorated and very comfortable. The service was excellent and the food, delicious. My first trip I had the gumbo (Aaahh-mazing) and crab cakes, with a dozen oysters (Orleans style). My second visit... More

As many have stated on this site, you cannot pass this place while eating in Biloxi, so my wife and I had dinner here last night. I must say that the reviews were justified. I started my meal with the oyster sampler, a dozen of the best oysters I have ever eaten. The plate featured four of the establishment's grilled... More

I was looking forward to trying this restaurant so we visited on the first night of our vacation after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor. We arrived and were promptly greeted and seated by the friendly staff. The restaurant is beautiful and there was nice smooth jazz playing quietly in the background, the restaurant was all warm wood and exposed... More
