Clean and inviting. Staff is friendly and pleasant. Food is very good and priced reasonable. Not an extensive menu but everyone can find something they like.

Good find for the price. Service was off that day a little. Have eaten there a few times but one time I think it was a new server. Not complaining because the place was packed and she done well for a new server on her own but was just a little off. She still got her 15℅tip from me. I... More

This is definitely a very casual, noisy restaurant which I knew from reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. You sit at small tables with a hole in the middle with a large plastic garbage can under it which leaves almost no room for your legs. My husband had the fried catfish with two sides for $20 and I had the... More

Was recommended by the Embassy Suites. WoW, they did not disappoint. The Mahi Mahi was off the chain and service really was exemplary. Will definitely come again.

Awesome casual place for seafood. We went after checking in to our hotel. My husband loved the hole in the table trash disposal, he is such a big kid. We were lucky only a short wait, fried shrimp and oysters were our picks for the night as well as the peach cobbler to go since we were stuffed.

We can always count on the Shell House to have great food. The steamed shrimp are the best. It is best to get there early. THe line is usually long and the wait can be over an hour. It is very casual. Its always a treat for us.

The food was great, Service was spot on, she checked in at the right times not to often. Only thing I did not like for the paper plates, for the price you pay there should be real. Tea was good as well

This place was recommended. Upon arrival, the parking was unorganized, sketchy looking area. Cheaply decorated and rambling layout inside. The table has a hole in the center for trash, a huge turn off! Borderline unsanitary. This would be fine for outdoor eating oysters, not for inside dining. Seafood was average at best. Served on disposable plates with plastic utensils. Prices... More

Food was just ok. Atmosphere was messy, noisy and dirty. The food is served on paper plates that you dump in a hole in the middle of the table. Not sanitary. Table was greasy along with the huge portion of food. Not a place I would visit again. The price was high compared to the restaurant quality and cleanliness. Looks... More
