Local chain offering solid seafood fare

I visited a friend in the Foley AL area, and we stopped at the Shrimp Basket in Foley for the "All You Can Eat" boiled shrimp night. I also sampled a cup of their gumbo - flavored nicely, yellow rice, not spicy (I ended up trying some of the hot sauces on the table to kick it up a bit).... read more

This restaurant is not a favorite for me because as someone with seafood allergies the non seafood choices are atrocious. My family likes the seafood but the chicken is dry and tasteless and the sides which look good on paper are really awful. I have tried more than once and always with the same results.

I have only been there once and I ordered the wrong thing. Everyone has there own version of fish n grits. The one constant should be that the ingredients are fresh and do not taste fishy. The catfish n grits I received tasted very fishy in both ingredients. I literally took two bites and left my plate untouched otherwise. I... More

Our family stopped in for lunch and we weren't disappointed. The place was crowded but our server did a great job of getting us drinks fast and putting in our order. We had all you can eat shrimp, chicken fingers, shrimp fettuccini, and a grilled shrimp salad and all were great! If you are looking for some good seafood, and... More

Although a small chain, this is a local favorite. Very informal, inside or outside seating. Our family had both fried shrimp and grilled shrimp, we were split on which was better. Also ordered fried pickles, kids liked them ... Tasted like Chick-fil-A to me. Fried fish was thin, but flaky and good. Friendly service.

This place you'll probably notice a few times on your way down highway 59 coming to Orange Beach or Gulf Shores. It has various fried seafood and other things like chicken and hush puppies. If you're in the mood for deep fried everything this is your place.

This busy restaurant moves quickly to make sure guests are seated as soon as possible - at a clean table! The service was really good with a smile and a quick response to any of our requests. We had a large party with 3 adults and 5 kids ranging from 2 to 17 years old - which meant we needed... More

While visiting relatives in Gulf Shores, we ate at the Shrimp basket twice. The first time I got shrimp and grits. It was absolutely delicious. The second time we ate there, I got white fish and vegetables. Again, delicious. There were 10 in our party and everyone either cleaned their plate or got a to go box. The service was... More

I like the one in Foley better than the one near the beach b/c it's not nearly as crowded. The fried shrimp and the fried catfish are both hot, fresh, and delicious! And the homemade tarter sauce complements everything well! The service has always been great.
