It's hard to beat Shells when it comes to seafood. We make a point of having dinner at Shells whenever we visit Melbourne. Tonight we had the Ultimate Grilled Combo (fish, shrimp, crab cake) and the Fisherman's Trio (Fish, Clams, Scallops). Great quality, large portions....More

This restaurant was clean with friendly wait staff. Clam chowder was VERY tasty! 2 persons in the group had oysters that they really enjoyed. The calamari and clams strips were freshly and lightly breaded and were very good. Would highly recommend this stop.

Have been wanting to go there for awhile now and finally made it and was not disappointed. Food and service was exceptional. I miss having other Shells restaurants as in the past.

I use to there years ago and they were a terrific restaurant. We went on Valentines day this year. They were overcrowded and rushed so maybe that is why the food and the service ween't the best. It was ok.
