We had the one in Gulfport years ago but came to Biloxi on a road trip. This one is just as good. It is busy being close to Hard Rock Casino but it is good. Oysters fresh and seafood was great!

Favorite winter spot, in the bar, by that warm grill, smell of oysters grilling, garlic--yes! Love to get the oysters and a bowl of gumbo which is perhaps the best on the coast!

If you love seafood, you won't want to miss this great Biloxi restaurant. Our favorite entree is their fantastic "Royal Reds".....to die for. Huge deep water shrimp in a yummy garlic butter....now what could be better than that? Well, we always add their red potatoes...More

This place is fantastic. After several friends recommended Half Shell we decided to give it a try. Was not disappointed. Everything about this restaurant is First Class. Great customer service. I ordered the ribeye, it was cooked perfect and deliscious. I will definitely be coming...More

I can see why this would be a popular restaurant. It is on the main street, its menu caters to lots of different tastes (but not so much to a vegetarian), and it provides very good service. I am a vegetarian.

Oysters on half shell were fresh and good. Fried Shrimp appetizer (while shrimp are small/medium size) the dish is SUPER tasty! Lastly, the seafood gumbo...have tried gumbo at 6 places along gulf coast. This version was the best due to use of crab vs. fish....More

I saw some great reviews and since we were there, figured it would be a great experience. I wasn't impressed at all. The food was good but just not up to the reviews. I had the surf and turf and although I will say the...More

This was the second Half Shell that we visited on the same day. We started with lunch at the Hattiesburg restaurant and dinner at the Biloxi restaurant. Great oysters, great service by great people.

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
