I've been to the Shrimp Basket several times, two different locations. The fried shrimp is great. Their hot sauce is great to buy and bring home. Never disappointed in the food or service.

Quick service, mediocre food. Shrimp skewers are advertised as being accompanied by drawn butter, but served with a gold oil substance. When I asked the server if there was any drawn butter available, she told me it was butter. If they can't tell the difference…it speaks volumes about the quality of product they use

The butter that we use is a "butter substitute". I apologize that the menu was misleading. I will bring it to our management's attention. I do hope that your shrimp skewers were satisfying despite the butter setback. Thank you for taking your time to leave your feedback on your visit. I do appreciate it greatly. More

FI-NAL-LY, after trying several times during my visit to the Upper Gulf Coastal area of FL & AL, I found what I have creamed, fresh, good, briny oysters on half shell...and where?? right where I should have gone all along, the Shrimp Basket! I chose this location, not realizing I could have gone to one closer to my vacation location,... More

No frills. Wet bathing suits and sandy flip flops welcome. Seafood, "fast" and worth eating. Shrimp slaw a novel idea

On our October trip to the shrimp festival we eat at the Shrimp Basket. The seafood was above average, the service was efficient and I would recommend this restaurant for all family members. The location is good and prices are fair.

There are a lot of Shrimp Baskets in the area and I thought it would be generic. After receiving my meal, I don't think it is. I had the blackened shrimp, they were large and very tasty. The service was mediocre but the food was good. Another server would have made the difference.

Fabulous fried shrimp, oysters and fish. Best around. Oysters are crispy on the outside and delicious on the inside, versus the soggy oysters served in many other local restaurants with Oyster or Oyster house in their names. Try the popcorn shrimp - the shrimp are not small as the name suggests, but large and flavorful and cooked just right.
