Dinner date with my husband. I had the broiled shrimp platter and my husband had fried shrimp. Both pretty good, portions good. I did think it was a little pricey. Gator bites appetizer was really tasty.

Just about the best there is in Savannah. Always fresh, always tastey, always good value, and always good with family.

My husband and I had date night and it was great! There's an outside view which is beautiful. The place was full but the service was still great and the food was great! It's a seafood place so the price was pricey but normal.

I've been visiting The Shell House for over 30 years. My favorite is and always will be the boiled shrimp. Ask for an extra cup of seasoning, drawn butter, and their homemade cocktail sauce. Peel a shrimp, dip in all three bowls, and you get...More

They were medium. Not cheap. For what you pay, the food should be served on proper plates with silver wear, not cheap fast food style.
