Try the oyster sampler platter, with four different types of cooked oysters; it's awesome!!! I had the grilled redfish with potatoes, my wife had the seafood alfredo. Both were delicious. Appetizers, 2 cocktails, dinner, and 2 desserts were $80 plus tip, so it's not cheap. The quality is definitely there.

We'll come back here the next time we're in Biloxi. Wife had the chargrilled oysters, and like an earlier reviewer found them not up par with Drago's (but whose are?). I had the seafood pot pie because I've never seen this on a menu before. It make great sense and was well executed, with an excellent pastry top. Our server was very good, and the cocktails were nicely priced at happy hour.

I had read the reviews and wanted to try the Half Shell Oyster House while in Biloxi for a few vacation days. The main dining room is not large, but we were early for dinner and did not have any trouble being seated. We wanted to try the charbroiled oysters. They were great, and so was the service. We would definately eat here again.

Stopped in Biloxi for an overnight trip. Wanted some fresh Gulf seafood and did an internet search and settled on Half Shell. Great charachter to building was first impression. Went inside and had a feeling it was just what I was looking for. Ordered some oysters (charbroiled and the ones w/ lump crab meat) as an appetizer. WOW, tasty, especially the charbroiled one. Shouldve ordered another dozen. Entree had the red shrimp, which I never had before. Rich and sweet like lobster. Had a bananas foster cheescake as recommended by server. WOW, again. Place was clean, friendly and darn good. Wait staff was cheery and when asked about selections on menu, they knew their stuff. Cant wait to go here again.

Half Shell in Biloxi is in a great location! Walking distance from Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The dress is resort casual. Reservations are not necessary. The seafood is quite good. You have have to try the Portabello stuffed with crab meat, either as appetizer or main entree. Fabulous! The raw and grilled oysters exceptional! We are locals and we can prepare our own seafood, but we really enjoy going to the Half Shell! Lunch or dinner.
