After hearing so many people talk about the "shrimp basket" I just knew I had to give it a try. I was seated outside which at the time was my choice. But I changed my mind as I sat there getting wet from the mist they have constantly spraying on the deck. Yes it was cooling a hot day off... More

They are a good shack type place to eat. The food is what you would expect and is consistent. If they have oyster specials and only a few left, don't do it. We did.... 3 days hugging the porcelain god. It was once!! The other times, everything was great.

This is a great place and a great place to do takeout.. Sometimes it's a little too bustlely inside so try to get outside or even do takeout. The food is always good and well priced.

Visiting Gulf Shores. Stopped here on the way home for late lunch (about 3PM), based on good reviews. Very nice server. Seafood Gumbo is a vegetable soup. Good fried oysters. Blackened shrimp tacos just ok.

Have visited here several times over the past few years. Have never had a bad meal. This last visit a week ago, I got take out. I had called in my order and still had to wait a few minutes to pick up. Both dinners were piping hot when I picked them up. Plenty of sauces were included. Stuffed crabs... More

We went to have dinner at the shrimp basket in Foley tonight. The kids ordered burgers, which looked great. They loved them! My only compliant is that the burger doesn't come with fries and it's not on the kids menu. My favorite part of my meal was the potato salad. It was really tasty.

We were very happy to not have to wait 90-120 minutes for dinner, but the portions and food were just average for the area. It was good, don't get me wrong, but there was nothing stupendous about it and service was a bit slow(they WERE busy, of course). Wed probably go back rather than wait two hours at a beach... More

Awful service. Adult food was ok but child's food was terrible. Box mac and cheese and drink not included in price. I've eaten much better for far less cost. Wouldn't recommend and will not return.
