Shell’s restaurant, located “On The Way To The Beach” in Port Aransas, Texas, can be described as a Mecca for both local foodies and tourists seeking seriously good food. Shell’s definitely shakes off the “old and tired” and gets down to “real food”.

In 1996, Heber Stone opened Shell’s, creating an ambiance of a warm, inviting neighborhood restaurant, offering a creative and far ranging menu, reflecting his knowledge of a variety of world cuisines. One just has to explore the menu to see such European influences as Seared Foie Gras with Carmalized Apple Slice and Aged Balsomic Vineger; the Fusion of “Far East meets the Mediteranean” Capellini with Mixed Seafood, Wood Mushrooms, Roasted Roma Tomatoes, Kiffer Lime Leaves, Lemongrass & Cilantro in a Thai Curry Coconut Broth; the Mexican influenced “Aquacades Tampico” Tampico Style Crab and Avocado Salad. It is no wonder that Shell’s has enjoyed success, drawing locals and tourists alike.

Heber himself sums it all up nicely, “We are not here to create some hoity-toity image. I want to cook some seriously good food”. Quality Food at Affordable Prices – Shell’s delivers on that promise!
