Good food, long wait

Loved the food here and we were seated right away on the outdoor patio in spite of the wait to sit inside. The misters cooled the patio nicely. Only complaint was the wait for our food was well over half an hour.

Ate here with a large group, 12. Service was slow, fried items seemed to come from a freezer - Sam's or Costco type. Burgers were good. Waiters seemed to cater to the local over the tourist - at least the ones that were serving in our area.

Not at all bad for a quick lunch. I had a loaded up fried shrimp poboy after putting down a serving of crab claws and both were great. I ate every crumb. Service is quick and the prices reasonable.

This is a great place for families with children. We had raw oysters, crab claws, and red snapper- all good! Our waiter was good and we were seated quickly. Also, it was affordable!

We eat here at least once every time we visit orange beach. It's nice to have consistency and eating here is a given on every vacation. Staff is nice and the wait usually isn't long.

We had a late lunch here and enjoyed fast service and delicious food. I had fried shrimp that was cooked just right in a crispy batter. My side item was creamy cheese grits. While grits are a staple in the South they may be an acquired taste for visitors from other areas. In that case try the steamed new potatoes,... More

My husband and I ate there today for lunch. We got quick service even though they were fairly full and the waitress was a sweetie. I had the shrimp basket and he had the catfish and shrimp. It was good. I loved my shrimp. I can't say it was the best I've ever had but it was lightly breaded and... More

I have been to 3 locations and every time the shrimp has been freshly cooked and comes out hot. You get a large amount of food for the price and my husband and I always try to make 2 trips to The Shrimp Basket during our beach trips. The new potatoes, fries, shrimp cole slaw, and all sides I have... More
