“Lunch in the Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Nice place for a casual lunch in the village. The baked oysters were delicious as was the crab cake sandwich. A little pricey for lunchtime, but good service and great food.

“Warm and welcoming with great seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

After a very wet day on St Simon's Island our spirits were lifted by the warm, homely welcome at the Half Shell. Great friendly atmosphere in this place and the food met the same standards. Star of the show was the blackened shrimp with cheesy grits-delish was the verdict.

“You know its good when you see head chef from another restaurant come in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Wow this place was great-- they were slammed but we still enjoyed great service. Excellent oysters... we got em' every way you could order them lol. Also delicious shrimp. We saw the head chef from a neighboring restaurant was in (still had name tag on) -- so you know it must be good!!
