The Shrimp Basket is a go to when you want consistency with your food. They are to be commended on their Po' Boy sandwiches as well as their seafood baskets. The food is not fancy and the choices are limited. However, what they have is good.

My husband and I stopped in for dinner as snow birds. It was a cool January evening and we sat outside in an enclosed area. It was a busy evening there but our food was good.

We eaten here several times in the last 3 years and have had good food and service. This time we had fish tacos. The fish was overlooked and the best part of the meal was the red beans and rice. Not up to the standard we have had in the past.

We tried this with a buy one get one dinner coupon and are happy we did. I ordered the shrimp etoufee with blackened white fish - the fish was perfectly cooked, tender, and moist inside and the etoufee was tasty - the shrimp could have been bigger but they were tasty. My companion ordered the grilled white fish with grilled... More

If it's casual, beach "fast food", you're good here. The shrimp, of course, are the reason we're here. Wait staff was memorably pleasant, service was quick, and the place was clean. Just what we were looking for while in beach-bum mode!
