Happy 20th birthday to Fish City Grill and Half Shells Oyster Bar and Grill!
Bill Bayne opened the first of his 16 restaurants, Half Shells Oyster Bar and Grill, in Snider Plaza in 1995. Since then, Bayne has expanded his line of restaurants into four different states including Oklahoma, Florida, and Arkansas.
The 20th anniversary celebration took place Saturday, Nov. 14 complete with live music and, according to Bayne, “lots and lots of oysters.”
“Since the beginning, 20 years ago, we have made it our mission to provide superior quality food with unparalleled service in a neighborhood joint where everyone is comfortable,” Bayne said, known around his employees as the Chief Seafood Officer.
