Half Shell Oyster House
Half Shell Oyster House is a small regional chain with seven locations in Mississippi, including one in Hattiesburg. Inspired by New Orleans cuisine, this restaurant has a little bit of everything.

Be sure to also try their Redfin Orleans, or if you’re looking to indulge, go for the Big Easy Surf & Turf. Call ahead to order for pickup.
Cotton Blues Kitchen and Marketplace
Cotton Blues lives up to its tagline of being “Mississippi Made.” Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this restaurant has you covered whenever you’re hungry. As a restaurant and marketplace, they also have “heat and serve” take-home options if you’re looking for that fresh-from-the-oven taste. For seafood, try the Thin Fried Catfish Plate or the Blackened Fish Tacos. If you’re a shellfish lover, the Fried Gulf Shrimp Plate is a can’t-miss. Then be sure to follow it up with a slice of their legendary cheesecake. You can order online for easy pick up or delivery.

Crescent City Grill is the most upscale option on our list. This grill specializes in Creole-inspired cuisine, but they also have some exciting fusion dishes.
