Dallas Observer's Description
Dangling miniature Christmas lights and plastic fish combined with tin pails of saltine crackers on all the tables give this dim, narrow seafood eatery in the middle of the Park Cities a surprising slightly laid-back, urban seaport feel. Start out with a batch of iced, fresh oysters on the half shell. If the famous slither of the damp raw creatures doesn't do it for you, try the oyster nachos--tortilla chips topped with chipotle tartar sauce, fried oysters and pico de gallo. If you're not dieting, fried catfish tacos, a basket of thick waffle fries and a cold longneck make a glorious combination. Half Shells is tiny, and they don't take reservations, so plan on a wait during peak hours. The bar crammed in the back is a pleasant spot to pass the time--that is, if you can negotiate a seat.
Tips from foursquare
Go to any Fish City Grill in Dallas. Order Oyster Nachos and/or Fish Tacos - substitute grilled Tilapia on the tacos for a lighter option.
Order off the board, you won't regret it. They have a guest executive chef at the moment and he's getting creative
Buffalo shrimp po boy is greatness.
Oyster nachos and Serafin's fish tacos are killer. Yum!!!
Try the Oyster Nachos - I know it sounds sketchy, but the fried oysters work really well! (via @Foodspotting)
