Good food

Stopped for lunch, service very good. Food tasty, shrimp and fries very good as well as gumbo. Only wish that they would serve beer in glass (not plastic) , soup in dish ware (not styrofoam bowls).

Ate lunch here on the weekend. Seated quickly, good service. The fried shrimp were very good! The fried oysters aren't as good as say Tacky Jacks, but ok. The tartar sauce was good though. We'll be going back for the all you can eat whitefish special this week.

We had a great lunch, my granddaughter loved her shrimp basket. I had the shrimp & grits and they were wonderful. I also tried the Basket Case drink, it was quite yummy and strong! Or server was very pleasant.

Good seafood, good prices, good service, good golly, let's eat! They have deep fried or grilled, certain nights are all you can eat, though the first order is plenty.

Plain type interior with bar and both inside and outside seating. Wife had the po boy and it was tasty. I had white fish platter and it came out hot and was good. Stuffed Crab claw appetizer did not appeal to me. Menu said platter included fritters and hushpuppies and I got one tiny fritter and two small hushpuppies. Service... More

We ate at the original Shrimp Basket in Gulf Shores. This place is always busy, and now I know why. The food is inexpensive and very good. We all had shrimp, either fried or grilled. You also need to try to the Shrimp Slaw. Very good coleslaw with some shrimp in it.

Great little seafood shop that packs a lot of punch. We had a very affordable dinner seated outside on the deck. My husband had fried shrimp and catfish and I had shrimp and oysters. All were good and I liked the sides that were not the ordinary. I had turnip greens ( much like spinach) that was very good as... More
