The popular Half Shell Oyster House in the historic Kremer Building in downtown Gulfport, MS is expanding and renovating. The seating capacity will go from 100 to 160. When the restaurant reopens on Monday, April 13, customers will find fresh paint and new decor. The New Orleans theme with wood and ironwork, stained glass, unique lighting, French Quarter artwork and collectibles will be improved.
"We could have added even more seating, but we want to make it more comfortable for our guests, too," said Bob Taylor, Half Shell owner. "We're excited to give our guests more room and an updated atmosphere. As we've opened more restaurants, the concept has evolved and improved," Taylor said. "It was time to take it up a notch in Gulfport, too."
