“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Good fish meal. Close to Marriott hotels on Creighton. We were tired from day at beach but didn't want fast food. This was just what we were looking for with good variety of sides.

“Wonderful Crab Claws!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We recently vacationed in Pensacola Beach. While we were there we chose to dine not once, but twice at the Shrimp Basket. It is a chain restaurant located in the Deep South, but none the less it was really good. We have eaten at the Shrimp Basket on many occasions over many years and have always had good experiences and good food anytime we've been there. I always have the fried shrimp basket with new potatoes along with a full order of fried crab claws to share as an appetizer with my family. Even though it is a chain, it is still a very good place for a very nice meal, you won't be disappointed by the Shrimp Basket. Darrell and Lisa Walters, Oak Grove Missouri.

We had the crawfish poboy, shrimp & fish basket, and chicken strip basket. All was good, although I felt the shrimp was not great...funny huh? The SHRIMP basket...?

“Big Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This eatery was recommended to us by our motel clerk as an easy, casual place with really fresh seafood. We were a party of 4 adults and two kids - 6 and 13 - and it was a everything and more for a family seafood meal. It's a relatively small and very casual, "low atmosphere" (intended as a compliment) place to relax and eat a basket-type seafood meal with beer or soft drinks. It wouldn't stand out in a drive-by but it stood out in our experience there. I give it high marks for exceeding our needs at the time.

“Something For Everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Good service, good food. We always appreciate options for kids, too. Great little hidden gem located by the local.
We'll eat here again if back in Pensacola.
