Can't say a lot about the entire menu, but can testify that the raw oysters on the half shell were very good. Service was excellent, ambience was great and price was reasonable. If the rest of the menu is as good as the oysters, this place can't miss.

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.

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.
