The Scoop: Johnny's Half Shell is a true standout. Located just a block from the Capitol, the restaurant is the ideal spot for any occasion from power lunch to romantic dinner. At Johnny's, every dish is a specialty. The chef and owner is passionate about serving the finest ingredients including organic, local produce and sustainable seafood making every dish outstanding in its own way. Particularly popular items include their namesake, Oysters on the Half Shell, as well as their classic Crab Cake, Fried Oysters, and Shrimp and Grits. The entire menu is infused with a mix of Creole Gulf Coast seasonings and flavors from the Chesapeake region, so every dish tells the story of seafood in American cuisine. Johnny's goes to great lengths to ensure that everything it serves is as good as it can be including flying in Po'Boy bread from Louisiana and making its own hand-cut fries and special mayo for crab cakes. And with an incredible wine selection and cocktails composed of top-shelf liquors, your meal doesn't stop at food! Johnny's ensures that eating and drinking is a true experience - and don't forget to round it off with their (excellent) desserts. **Please not that the images above display sample size dishes and are much smaller than the regular portions.
