“a taste of the old key west”
The Half Shell Raw Bar offers a taste of old Key West you can’t experience anywhere else. As you head inside, you’ll notice the local fisherman unloading the day’s catch into the Half Shell’s Fish Market. Grab a seat at one of the wooden picnic tables or on a stool by the bar and get ready to enjoy the freshest seafood in Key West. If it’s oysters you’re after, you’ve come to the right place—order a dozen and watch as they’re shucked from the shell onto your plate.
When I visited the Half Shell Raw Bar, I had the crabcake sandwich with key lime mustard and raw oysters on the half shell and I really enjoyed all of it! Even their coleslaw was delicious! The service was prompt and friendly and definitely not what you would expect for a place that probably sees a zillion tourists in a regular basis.
I've never had a bad fish sandwich here. They've got ample city parking out front (a bonus if you aren't staying on the island) and the restaurant is pretty large so there's not usually a wait. They have some seating that overlooks the marina and much of the restaurant has an open air feel.
This is one of the best value meals on the island. Good quality, good price, fun spot.
