About On The Half Shell

On The Half Shell, located right outside of Baton Rouge in Prairieville, has been a seafood hot spot for over 16 years, serving some of the freshest Louisiana seafood. We offer daily lunch specials along with an all-new lunch menu.  The half seafood po-boy and gumbo special is a customer favorite.  If you are craving oysters, On The Half Shell is the place to come! Chargrilled, fried, or served raw on the half shell, we have you covered. The Guidry’s Dozen, a combination of Chargrilled, Rockefeller, Bienville, Picante di Fromaggio, and Poblano is guaranteed to satisfy your love of oysters. All of our gumbos, soups, and sauces are homemade in house daily.

On the Half Shell offers a fun, family friendly atmosphere. With the addition of flat screen TVs, it’s the perfect spot to watch the game! In the mood for some live music?
