“Must do while in Orange Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We ate at the Shrimp Basket twice while we were in Orange Beach. The blackened mahi mahi tacos were great! Wednesday is all you can eat fried shrimp. Big hit with my husband.

“Sadly disappointed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had eaten here in 2012 but were very disappointed with our Oct. 2013 visit, the "butter" on the steamed potatoes was artificial oil like you put on popcorn! Yuck, the shrimp were way too greasy and the only saving grace was the always tasty shrimp coleslaw offering. Sorry, probably won't return, just lacked and the interior needs to cleaned really well and a fresh coat of paint, felt sad inside! Service was good and waitress was attentive and friendly but she did not know the menu nor did she offer to find out when we asked if the baked beans had green pepper in them?!

“Fried Shrimp, Boiled Shrimp, Grilled Shrimp......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Enjoyed stopping here for lunch on our trip to the Gulf Coast. Good service and the food was tasty. On the day we went it was all you can eat shrimp and I was pleasantly surprised that the shrimp was tender, not chewy from overcooking. The shrimp coleslaw was killer.
