Late lunch, 2 PM, 6 friends, having shrimp baskets, oyster & shrimp po'boys, onion rings, red beans & rice, and gumbo, all washed down with beers. Service was unusually slow today -- that is the reason for the... read more

We have eaten here several times in the past 3 years and have always been happy with food and service. This time we had fish tacos and I would have say they were so so. The fish was over cooked and the tortilla was hard. The red beans and rice was the best part of the lunch.

We were vacationing in the Gulf Shore area for a month, came across this location of Shrimp Basket. Looks more like a sports bar inside. Friendly service, decent prices, good food. Best fried oysters I've eaten so far!

They have many specials , like the all you can eat boiled shrimp which my grandson took as a personal challenge one trip! My granddaughter is so NOT a seafood fancier how ever she raves about the...

Plenty of good seafood; new choices from last visit. Husband had fried catfish filets, I had shrimp & grits. So much food, we couldn't finish it all.

We stopped in for an afternoon snack and to get out of the rain. We each ordered a bowl of etouffee and shared a basket of crab claws. Our server Crystal was very efficient. I for got to mention this in another Shrimp Basket review, but they also have a delicious shrimp slaw, cole slaw with minced shrimp. Delicious.

This place is great. It stays very busy but overall it's a wonderful place to eat. We always make an effort to stop by here on our vacation over the summer. I always get the shrimp po boy!

We wanted to have shrimp for husbands birthday. So we went to the Shrimp Basket of course. We were pleased with the service and the quick service. I was so pleased that they had cheese grits. They were absolutely wonderful the shrimp basket did not disappoint us.

We got the fried pickles and blackened shrimp platter. Both were great! We had the red beans and rice as side. It was very good. Our server was Jordan and she was very friendly and got our food out just how we wanted it.

I'm never disappointed. I make it to Foley once a year and end up eating here at least 2 times before I head out. Very popular with the locals. They have other locations in the area too.
