Always good!

We (carefully) had the fish of the day. Always make sure it is not Swia or whatever they call S.E. Asian catfish. We got lucky and had grilled (not fried) grouper and grilled red fish! Outstanding. The shrimp slaw is always really good and the cheese grits were something you would really like... read more

This is one of those small chains that gets it right. I eat at this restaurant about once a week. The staff hustle, are friendly, and responsive. I have had a bad experience once or twice, but they have a boatload of clientele every time we eat there. And they handle it well 95% of the time I think. It's... More

It was the only seafood place that we could find north of 180 on 59. If there were others, they were not well marked. Husband got Blackened Shrimp Platter and I got the Fried Seafood Platter. A lot of food, almost too much. The Fritter was very good but we each got only one - disappointing. It was the size... More

Husband enjoyed his large catfish filets, and my shrimp & grits was a hit. We always eat there, when in Foley. No disappointments.

Very good crawfish etouffe and fried seafood. Outdoor dining along Foley's main drag is a nice change from sitting inside. Good service, tasty food, and decent prices keep us coming back!

We have been here many times and love the white fish and this time the food did not disappoint. However, on the way out the door I decided to visit the ladies room (1st time ever) & upon opening the door I saw huge dead roach and filth. I shut the door and it was all I could do to... More

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
