Half Shell Oyster House
he Half Shell Oyster House opened in the summer of 2009 in Downtown Gulfport and recently opened a second location in Downtown Biloxi. The charbroiled oysters are legendary and the atmosphere will make you feel like youac2ve stepped back in time. Located in the historic Kremer building in downtown Gulfport, the acoeHalf Shellac or acoeOyster House,ac as locals have abbreviated it, serves the Southern delicacy freshly shucked on the half shell, charbroiled over an open flame, BBQ, Rockefeller and Bienville. And now you can experience the same great atmosphere and food in the Biloxi restaurant. We will soon be expanding to Florida, opening our first restaurant in Sarasoto soon
My spouse and I went there last night while on vacation, we had 1 dozen oysters on the half shell and while they were not as salty as we are accustomed to (we are New Orleanians), they were very good. For our entree, I had two appetizers - the grilled shrimp and the crab cakes, they were great. My spouse had grilled mahi mahi with spinach risotto and grilled asparagus. We also had drinks, I had a glass of merlot and he had a Macallan on the rocks and then a Sam Adams with dinner. We had an enjoyable meal and the price was very good for what we ordered. The service was great and we didn't wait long for our food. We would give this restaurant 5 stars and we definitely plan to visit again. The restaurant was cozy without being too small and the service and food rate highest on our list of items we look for when searching for a restaurant where we vacation.
went with a friend last night, the service was awesome. Waiter was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu and was so helpful. Never had to ask for anything he was right there. The food was out in speed time so I worried about the quality but it was awesome. I had the seafood pasta and it was an enormous plate! plenty to take home for leftovers or share with your mate. Even the salad was so fresh and was about one of the best salads I have had in a restaurant. Very fresh. But the seafood pasta included crawfish tails, shrimp, mushrooms and was delicious!! I loved it and would def go back again.
