Half Shell

Half Shell - Chicago

King crab legs, oysters on the half shell and clams are the specialty at this down-scaled eatery that's been around since 1968. Half Shell observes first-come, first-served and cash-only policies.

A neighborhood favorite before and after Cubs games, Half Shell is tiny, yet patrons are willing to wait for up to an hour for various seafood sandwiches, the raw bar and entrees.

Menu highlights include the soft shell sandwich (lunch only), fried oysters and broiled red snapper. There are also red meat dishes for those who want it: A half-pound charbroiled steak burger and beef tenderloin shish kabobs are also on the menu.

There's a full-service bar.
