Great Food!

Great value for the price. I order steamed shrimp (really wanted boiled), they were a little dry. You could not substitute any items for most platters offered on the menu. Kid meals are huge, well worth the cost. Overall, not bad.

Because of the flies. Dirty windows, dirty floors and dirty tables. Tough to concentrate on food when everyone has one hand for eating and the other unsuccessfully working to deflect flying pests. With five adjacent tables of adults all going at once, somebody needed to hoist gale warning flags to prevent wind damage. The young waitresses don't seem to understand... More

If you enjoy fried seafood, this is the place for you! No miss, no fuss. Great selection. Generous portion. Loved the shrimp slaw, corn fritter and fried green beans! BEST sweet tea of the whole trip, which says a lot. Love it nascent wait to go back!

Great food and reasonably priced. A bit small but when weather is okay there is outside seating available. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. Their shrimp slaw is delicious!

My son is severely allergic on gluten and soy and we spent some time asking them if it's something that he can eat and the waiter's response was "I don't know "and didn't bother to ask. After a long time talking to him and some other person they still brought him corn soaked in butter with soy and it made... More

Just about everything that we ordered was bland. The catfish basket was really well cooked and tender on the inside while being crunchy on the outside, but there was no flavor to speak of. The place has a relaxed atmosphere, and the servers were nice enough. The food is not a compliment, and could have just been an off day.... More

We ate at two Shrimp Basket restaurants. I found the food ok, but the service and environment lacking. It reminds me of a fast food joint, only without the fast. However, the prices are not "fast food", and the portions are a little smaller that what you might expect for the price.
