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 . We spend a lot of time during the year in the Fort Morgan area , and we always visit The Foley, Gulf Shores or Perdido location. That's about a 30 mile... More
We visited around noon on Monday and it was busy but not full. The waitress was good and both of us ordered fried shrimp po'boys. 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.

Our wait staff was great, the place was packed with many people waiting. There were, at one time, I counted 6 tables needing bussed???? We sat at the bar in front of the oyster shucker, when we sat down there was a plate of 6 shelled oysters just sitting there, for how long?? We ordered a dozen oysters, not those!!!... More
I do apologize for your experience at Shrimp Basket. It does sound like it was a mad house in there when you were dining. I will speak with the District Manager over this store and let them know they may need to work on scheduling so that they don't get so crazy. Thank you for leaving a review and letting... More
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 am very sorry to hear that your visit with Shrimp Basket was anything less than stellar. I do apologize. I will be passing your visit along to the District Manager and General Manager over that location so that they are aware of your experience. We hold our staff to a much higher standard than what you received. I will... 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
First stop as we arrived at the "shores" -- a tradition for lunch. Oyster & shrimp po'boy's, onion rings (some of the best), clam strips, shrimp slaw, & red beans & rice all washed down with beers. The bowl of red beans & rice with whole smoked sausages on top has to be some of the best (my wife ordered... More
Thank you for your glowing review. I am very happy to hear that stopping at Shrimp Basket is a part of your arrival tradition. Sounds like you and your wife enjoyed your meal of po-boy and red beans & rice very much. Til next time... More
