Returned to the Shrimp Basket for a second time and it was just as good. I got the catfish basket for lunch and hubby orders the shrimp and then we shared with each other. Very good, hot and fresh. My hush puppies were a little gooey on the inside but everything else was perfect. Service is good even when busy.... More

Fresh FRIED seafood at it's finest - shrimp, oysters, clam strips, white fish and catfish. A variety of trimmings complement the seafood ... okra, baked beans, slaw, onion rings, fries, potatoes. Limited bar choice and "so so" service but the food is fresh and very good.

We have eaten at this location as well as the one in Orange Beach. The fried shrimp is wonderful. The basket comes with two hush puppies, a corn fritter, and two sides. I usually get the potato salad, which is a sour cream/chive flavor instead of mustard, and their shrimp slaw. They also sell bottles of their hot sauce, which... More

This was our second visit to this establishment. Both my husband and I had the skewered grilled shrimp with rice, grilled bread, and a shrimp coleslaw. Everything was very very good. So glad we came back again. Kind of small inside –bar has about eight stools, inside has about 13 tables, and then there's an outside seating area with a... More

So far every time we have gone to Gulf Shores, we have always ate at the Shrimp Basket at least once. They have some of the best fried shrimp. I love going on the days they serve unlimited shrimp. I recommend that if you love seafood, you stop by here!

We met friends for lunch yesterday. I had coconut shrimp and my husband had the fish. Coconut shrimp was good and I had plenty of shrimp. My husband thought fish was nice and light. Very good. Had hush puppies and a corn fritter. Nice for lunch. Our friends also had fish and took enough home for another meal.

Stopped by on a chilly Saturday afternoon about 2pm. Seated right away, no wait. Greeted at the table very quickly with menus. I ordered the fried crawfish platter, the lovely wife ordered the fried shrimp tacos. My crawfish was a 5 of 10. Kind of tasted as if they were fried in oil that wasn't super fresh. With that being... More

6 of us at dinner. Seating is scrunched together, but not a big deal. Meals are hearty portions. Most everybody liked their meal - my boiled shrimp was cooked too long, but still okay. New potatoes could use some seasoning - bland. Rolls of paper towels at the tables. Very casual. Good prices, good service, good food. Would go again.

We stopped in for a quick supper and I enjoyed the all you can eat popcorn shrimp. It was really good and I ate two baskets. Others were eating even more. My husband had blackened fish and it was good too. The restaurant was almost empty at 5pm on a Tuesday but service was great and we enjoyed the food.
