The atmosphere is like your local bar. Everyone knows everyone or it seems to be that way. Food was bountiful and very yummy.

I am a tourist and I love hole in the wall seafood places for fried shrimp. I saw Shrimp Basket as I drove in and decided to give it a try. The prices are a little lower than average, and the servings are a little bigger than average. I found the meal to be excellent. My wife had the steamed... More

I didn't expect this to be a nice restaurant. i thought it would be more like a fast food place, but surprise, we had a great lunch-alcohol available to make a relaxing vacation lunch. While in the South, we wanted to have as much seafood as possible and it fit the bill. Great lunch!

We have eaten at The Shrimp Basket in the Gulf Shores L.A. area for years. The food is good. The service is good ,and the prices are good .

The po'boys were very good with plenty of shrimp fried just right, most places cook the shrimp too long. The food arrived in good time considering the almost full tables. the atmosphere was not as...

Their fried seafood is good for the price. Nothing fancy. Waitresses are very young and inexperienced so don't expect much in the way of service. They have specials serveral times a week that bring in the older and cheap skates.

After waiting 45 minutes for a table, we continued to wait for our waitress. The only drinks offered were Coke & Diet Coke due to plumbing issues. Our waitress was not happy to be at work as it seemed the restaurant was short-handed for the afternoon. Being that it was all you can eat night, the manager should have prepared... More

I have eaten here a couple of times getting the fried shrimp basket both times. Great service & good fresh food! Servers are very nice & as crowded as it was both times the food comes out at a very reasonable time! Can get a little crowded but that doesn't stop great service!!

Thank you for your review. I am glad to hear that you are a "repeat shrimper". It does get crowded in there sometimes, but I am glad that your shrimp basket came out promptly and delicious for you. See you next time! More
