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

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!

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.

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
