After reading reviews we tried this place.....just average seafood and nothing to impressed with here. Raw oysters were small and not worth the money here. Fried items were average but they do have a good selection of sides. Shrimp slaw not that good.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The food is wonderful. The popcorn shrimp is the best anywhere. They serve new potatoes in melted butter and coleslaw with tiny shrimp which is the best I have had. The prices are reasonable and the service is very good.

Shrimp Basket has the best smoked tuna dip I've ever tasted!! All the other restaurants on the beach do not compare and have tried them all. Tuna from a can with seasoning is what you get for $10 and up when ordering anywhere else. It's absolutely delicious and recommend trying.

Only Miller Lite on draft? No Blue Moon at all? No frosted mugs available? Not a good way to start a meal. We ordered fried pickles. They came out overcooked,to the point they were in pieces. I had shrimp tacos,wife had fried shrimp. Our friends ordered catfish. I was all pretty good. The manager came to out table as he... More

Shrimp basket in Gulf Shores is always on our must eat at list while we are in town. The grilled shrimp po-boy is a must. Great food at good prices.

Sweet little zoo. This is by far one of the best zoo experiences. The ability to actually interact with some of the animals is well worth the price!!! I know my family created a life time memory here!
