Dining Guide

Shell’s

Expect a wait at this tiny cottage, with only nine tables and a couple of servers squeezed in for good measure. There are more daily specials than seats in the house, and you should check the chalkboard for things like bacon candy, if sweet-salty-sticky-smoky pork sounds as appealing to you as it did to us. While the crab cakes could have used half the filler and double the crab, the brothy gumbo had the deep flavor of a well-developed roux, and the grilled Gulf shrimp came out hot and plump. Bonus: you’ll not find a better Key lime pie in Port A.
