THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Half Shell Restaurant Review

: This 30-year-old Peachtree Battle classic is known for one thing---fresh seafood. Cast aside any trendy, cutting-edge cravings; the menu hasn't changed much in all the years. An authentic seafood gumbo resonates with flavors of Louisiana, and we also like the sautéed calamari steak. Entrées are a munificent affair, complete with salad, potato or vegetable. A gossamer coating of panko flour makes some of the best fried shrimp north of the Gulf, and we always hope for a fresh delivery of scamp, the signature fish (often served the same day it is caught). Try it with fresh tomatoes and lump crab meat. The wine list is limited but a plate of fried shrimp served up in this bosom of timelessness is all you'll really need. Clay Perritt, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, purchased the restaurant in 2001, and has only now changed the name, dropping the former owner's moniker.
