My wife and I are snow birding on the coast and were told to check out " The Half Shell " by locals we've met. It's a great suggestion for dining that has a table cloth.

Made a quick stop at recommendation of hotel staff. Half Shell was great. Food was superb,service was great and atmosphere was perfect. A little loud, but it is a popular stop! Would recommend to anyone on the MS Gulf Coast.

Have eaten here numerous times as I am a local. Favorite seafood is the Royal Red Shrimp. One of the few restaurants locally to serve these deep sea delicacies. They are steamed and are served with drawn butter and taste like lobster! Yum. Have had most items on the menu and have liked them all. Each month they feature an... More

We've eaten in 4 of their locations; always great service, food & ambience. Oysters offered in so many ways & the crab cakes w/no fillers are loaded w/lump crab meat. Always a good experience.
