Went here with the family while visiting relatives. Tried the charbroiled oysters based in a friend's recommendation. So good!! Even my picky teen who had never had oysters before loved them and begged for more.

We are repeat customers. The food and service are excellent. I had the Bacon Pecan Redfish with a house salad and my wife has the Snapper Lemeuse with the Lobster Crab Bisque. Both meals were superb. Fresh! For dessert we shared the Chocolate Obsession. A must for chocoholics. The restaurant was busy at dinner but we only waited 5-6 minutes.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Half Shell Oyster House. Pleasant surroundings and great food. The seafood was very fresh. The bread on the Shrimp Po-Boys was delicious.

Dinner was delicious. We started with the lobster and crab dip which was creamy and very tasty! I had a nice salad to start, which came as a side option with my meal, and blackened snapper. While the snapper was good, it was not as flavorful as some of the other blackened fish I have had. My husband had the... More

You can see all the reviews and know that this is THE place to go for seafood in Biloxi. The restaurant has that sort of "TGIFRIDAY's" feel, coastal style. It is very casual and the staff is very friendly and efficient. The oysters are fabulous so if you are an oyster fan, you MUSt get oysters here....whatever style you prefer.... More

Ate here last night (3/31/16) we had 2 dozen oysters (raw and Rockefeller) both were excellent. Main courses were filet mignon and grouper/lobster Oscar, both were excellent. The waitress was very attentive and so was the new trainee. Dessert was banana Foster cheesecake which was also excellent. My wife ordered another dozen raw oysters too. The bill came to $118,...

Although the restaurant doesn't take reservations they are able to manage lots of customers by offering quick service and being very organized. Oyster choices were varied and delicious.

Dinner last night was very good. Actually, we ate oysters and had their fried green tomato and crab cake appetizer. We tried the oyster sampler and enjoyed the adventure. Oysters Rockefeller won out and we ate a dozen of those. Our top shelf margaritas were excellent. Service was great. Would go again.

Service was excellent, I highly recommend the margaritas and Cajun shrimp. They are not too spicy! Our server was spot on to suggest them. All the vegetables our table ordered were very tasty as well.
