Good Oysters

Having three little ones after a full day on the beach we decided to order out for dinner. Called Shrimp Basket ready by the time we got there. Everyone enjoyed their food shrimp, oysters, and catfish. The slaw was really good with tiny shrimp in it. Kids loved the corn fritter.

We went in for all you can eat fish night. It was OK. When we asked about the seafood on the menu the waitress did not have a lot to share. It was an OK experience.....

I had eaten at this location more that 10 years ago on a trip with my graduating seniors. I remembered it as an outstanding experience. I encouraged my husband to make this a stop on our food exploration during a recent Perdido Key vacation . It did not have the taste I remembered. As food enthusiastis and travelers, dinner is...

So I must start by saying the food was excellent, the service was sadly not up to par. The entire table was without refills on our drinks until we asked after receiving our food. My father in law had to ask for water twice before he got any. The only saving grace and the reason for the three stars was... More

My wife and I recently visited Perdido and enjoyed a great meal after traveling all day. We were greeted by friendly staff and served quickly!

The Shrimp Basket has the best seafood on the key. Fantastic oysters, shrimp, fish. They also have great sides like cole slaw with tiny shrimp, greens, grits, pasta, etc. There are many restaurants up and down the key, but the best if you are looking for seafood.

Horrible raw oysters! Served on a warm platter. No taste, no texture. Muddy at best! Service was bad, wait was long.

We had great service and food. The coconut shrimp was so tasty that I made sure not to leave one! The white fish basket and the fried seafood platter were great too. The kids even tried the the fish and liked it. The frozen daiquiri went down smooth after a hot day.

Had the buffalo shrimp and it was so yummy, plus the Hubby had the all you can eat catfish and really enjoyed it! Our waitress was really great as well! If you are a shrimp ou fish person, you need to stop in! 😉
