We stopped in here to watch the Semana Motto motorcycle parade and were pleasantly surprised. Hubby had the shrimp Molcejate.....tons of shrimp, but very spicy......good for him. I had the shrimp tacos.....good, not too big, nice balance of flavors. Good margaritas!

This was literally (and somewhat surprisingly) our best meal in Mazatlan this trip. The beer battered shrimp are just excellent. The shrimp were huge, plump and juicy and the beer batter was excellent. Served with delicious dipping sauces and fries in a bucket. Loved it! Will return on future trips for sure.

This was a great place to stop for a cold beer and a bite to eat! There were English-speaking servers and nice bathrooms, too. The location is excellent!

Have thoroughly enjoyed the Karaoke on Tuesday evening at the Shrimp Bucket! The Beer Battered Shrimp Bucket is a must have for our group along with ice cold cerveza! Love the venue, attentive wait staff and the awesome sunsets. Keep up the good work and we'll continue to come and enjoy this wonderful restaurant.

Actually across the street from the Malecon! Outside seating is great except it's also the sidewalk, like most restaurants on this street. Service and food very good. On our second visit the service was terrible but it was raining out very hard so we didn't mind having a dry spot to sit and relax. Two tables of 8-10 local workers... More

Good food reasonably priced, great location in Centro across the street from the malecon and the beach. While shrimp is their big seller, local dishes are good. We ate here three times, a lunch, a snack, and a dinner.

While in Mazatlan I always look forward to the fresh shrimp. You would think the "Shrimp Bucket" would take pride in having the freshest shrimp.....NOT. We stopped for lunch and about the only thing good was cold beer, although a little more expensive than others. I love fresh chips & salsa (pico de gallo) and always order that first with... More
