Good food, not too pricey.

We called ahead & picked up our order, it was done in a short amount of time. The food was great. Between 4 people we had a variety of food and all of it was delicious. Very flavorful.

The Shrimp Basket is the one place I absolutely have to eat at whenever I'm in the Pensacola area. Wonderful service and amazing food every time.

We stopped here for lunch in the mid afternoon after spending the earlier part of the day Perdido State Park beach. Although our order took inordinately long and I was somewhat upset by the time the food arrived, I was blown away by the quantity and quality of the grilled white fish basket that I had. There were five or... More

we arrived right before they got busy. We were greeted promptly at the door and seated immediately. The hush puppy appetizer was very good. We also got the half pound of steamed shrimp. They were served still hot and very spicy. The waitress was there with plenty of refills. I had the shrimp étouffée and it was dynamite. We also... More

Though this is a chain and we did have to wait for a table/2, it was most certainly worth it! Even the bar only had seating for about eight, so we waited outside, studying the menu--good thing because the choices were not easy. Oysters on the half, red beans/rice, crab cakes w/fried okra were the best we have ever had.... More

We had our first experience at Shrimp Basket today.. It won't be the last. Wonderful fried and grilled shrimp cooked perfectly, delicious shrimp slaw, creamy sour cream based potato salad, amazing corn fritter - all reasonably priced. Excellent service!

My family visited the Shrimp Basket on a Tuesday night. It wasn't crowded at all. I had a need to fulfill my crab claw craving and wasn't disappointed! Everything my family had - Shrimp PoBoy to Shrimp Salad - was excellent. The service was great too. However, they were having problems in the kitchen and the food took a bit... More
