Never been treated so rudely by a waitress and manager! We've been going to this Shells for years, so we know what their food is supposed to be like. As other restaurants who only care about their bottom line have done, Shells has raised their prices and cut the quality and portion size of their food. My favorite meal there was always the fried shrimp dinner, until this last time, that is. Not only did they cut the amount of shrimp by close to half, but it's not even the same shrimp anymore. The breading was dried out and tasteless, and when I asked the manager on duty what happened, she snapped at me and said that it was the same shrimp and portion size they've always had. She was emphatically nasty and might as well have called me a liar. So much for the customer being right. The other two meals at our table were served barely warm with small amounts as well. When we told our waitress, she didn't even apologize, and came back after talking with the same manager and said very matter-of-factly that they would not do anything about it. Guess they don't believe in apologizing and offering to make things right at this restaurant. We either had to accept what they served us, or leave. Unbelievable! Bet you can guess what we chose to do. Yup, and we will NEVER be back again!!

Fresh seafood with decent prices. The service was great and the New England Clam Chowder was delicious.

Shells is one Melbourne seafood restaurant that you should avoid. I haven't eaten there for about ten years, so perhaps things have changed. But I haven't heard or read that the menu has changed in appreciable way.
