Great food at the Shrimp Basket!

Our family stopped in for lunch and we weren't disappointed. The place was crowded but our server did a great job of getting us drinks fast and putting in our order.

Although a small chain, this is a local favorite. Very informal, inside or outside seating. Our family had both fried shrimp and grilled shrimp, we were split on which was better. Also ordered fried pickles, kids liked them ... Tasted like Chick-fil-A to me. Fried fish was thin, but flaky and good. Friendly service.

This place you'll probably notice a few times on your way down highway 59 coming to Orange Beach or Gulf Shores. It has various fried seafood and other things like chicken and hush puppies. If you're in the mood for deep fried everything this is your place.

This busy restaurant moves quickly to make sure guests are seated as soon as possible - at a clean table! The service was really good with a smile and a quick response to any of our requests. We had a large party with 3 adults and 5 kids ranging from 2 to 17 years old - which meant we needed... More

While visiting relatives in Gulf Shores, we ate at the Shrimp basket twice. The first time I got shrimp and grits. It was absolutely delicious. The second time we ate there, I got white fish and vegetables. Again, delicious. There were 10 in our party and everyone either cleaned their plate or got a to go box. The service was... More

I like the one in Foley better than the one near the beach b/c it's not nearly as crowded. The fried shrimp and the fried catfish are both hot, fresh, and delicious! And the homemade tarter sauce complements everything well! The service has always been great.

Passing through on vacation and stopped here for lunch. The waitress was very attentive and the food was excellent. Our crab cakes, shrimp po boy and fried shrimp basket were the best we've had in the south. No wonder the restaurant was so busy! Would definitely return.

Shrimp Basket is a good family place for seafood. Fried shrimp are tasty as well as fried oysters. It is consistently good and moderately priced. In tourist seasons, it can be busy, but we've never had to wait to be seated. It is always clean and the service is good. Portions are generous.

The food was great and reasonable. The only thing is that there were so many flies. They need to seriously get an exterminator. The service was great overall. The kids even loved it.
