(Half Shell Oyster House)

CULLMAN, Ala. – One of the top seafood restaurants in the Southeast is coming to Cullman. Half Shell Oyster House, “where Southern cuisine meets New Orleans fare,” announced it will join the Cotton Creek Warehouse venue in downtown Cullman in 2024.  

According to a release from the restaurant, “Named in the top 10% of restaurants worldwide by Tripadvisor, Half Shell Oyster House is known for its award-winning selection of Gulf oysters. Freshly shucked and chargrilled oysters aren’t the only options available on the menu, though. Other items include hand cut steaks, Royal Reds, chicken alfredo, seafood stuffed portabella, seafood pot pie, almond encrusted chicken and several Gulf fish entrees. Half Shell also has an exceptional wine list including wine by the glass options, local draft beer selections, hand crafted cocktails and drinks. 

“Founded in late 2008, Half Shell Oyster House began in Gulfport, Mississippi and has grown into 15 locations across Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The idea of Half Shell was first conceptualized by company president, Bob Taylor, and was later polished off with partners Rob Heffner, Kevin Fish and Brian Raspberry. The company is still privately owned by Taylor and his three partners.” 

“We are excited to be coming to downtown Cullman,” said Raspberry, vice president of commercial development for Gulf Coast Restaurant Group. “We believe that Cotton Creek, along with its large event center and multiple retail and office outlets, will be a key development in the future growth of Cullman.” 

Half Shell Oyster House plans to open in 2024 and will be open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. It will also offer happy hours and seasonal features.
