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

Not impressed with this place. Mahi Mahi po boy was so small for the price. Maybe 4 ounces at best. The fish could have been cod, could not tell the difference. Of all the great places in the area this is one that should be avoided.

A good staple kind of place to get crab claws and seafood bisque. Relaxed casual atmosphere, plastic table cloths and paper towels. Good food for a good price.

We have eaten at Shrimp Basket in Orange Beach, AL for years. We've always loved their food and had a good experience until today. I'm so frustrated we will never go back to that Shrimp Basket again. On 12/26/14 we ate lunch and used a coupon we had for buy one basket get one free. We order one fried basket... More

We ate lunch on Christmas Eve. They had a crab claw special for$9.99, which I promptly ordered with a side of shrimp slaw. My husband orded the shrimp basket. We shared and both were excellent! We plan to return for another great meal.

Nothing wrong with this place. I ordered the blackened whitefish over rice and shrimp Étouffée and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The corn fritters and the crab claws are wonderful. The only negative and it's not the restaurants fault is I wish people would be more considerate of other diners and CONTROL THEIR CHILDREN.

They have good fried shrimp and they offer them as an all you can eat on Sunday and Wednesday for around $10 bucks so it's a good value for families and the budgeting traveler.
