Best value!

Good food, fair service, but definitely worth a try. The shrimp slaw is excellent! Always consistent.

I confess I approached lunch here a bit jaded and with some trepidation. My parents told me how much they enjoyed it but we generally have different tastes. When I saw the location at the end of a strip mall in Orange Beach I was skeptical! We went for lunch on Saturday. Seated almost immediately. Beverage orders taken by Jacqueline... More

We saw this restaurant in a strip mall and decided to stop for lunch. We ate in the outdoor section on a cool February day. Food and service were great. I had oyster platter with shrimp coleslaw, hushpuppies and fried okra. My husband had a fish sandwich. All were fresh and excellent. Great oysters, great hushpuppies, great coleslaw, etc. Service...

I ate here twice during my stay. I had a grilled grouper po-boy and a side of turnip greens the 1st time. The grouper was grilled to perfection and the flavor was not hidden with a lot of extra and unnecessary seasoning. The turnip greens were wonderful-true Southern greens, flavorful and not too salty as some can be. The second... More

I found a positive review on Pinterest for Shrimp Basket. All the hype about the shrimp was spot-on. The shrimp are excellent and the fried catfish is great. Too bad the fried crabs were lackluster. Otherwise, a great meal. Oh, and skip the key lime pie--too gummy.

Watch the signs and when it's AYCE (All You Can Eat) Shrimp day, stop in. It's not fancy, the sides are OK but the fried shrimp was lightly breaded, fried to perfection and brought out fresh and hot as long as I could shovel it in.

We had lunch @ the one over on 59 hwy. . It was just ok. The scallops were very good a lot of flavor. The service was more of the problem.

This is a part of a regional chain that serves lower end seafood. Always make sure you understand what is being served before you order as you may be served a farm raised fish or fish from outside the U.S. If you want fried shrimp or catfish or even a stuffed crab, this is a place for you.

Thank you for taking your time to write a review for Shrimp Basket. We do offer a variety of seafood including shrimp, fish, crab and more that does come fried, but we also offer the same items in a grilled or steamed option. I hope that you will visit us again in the future and perhaps give one of those... More
