We love good, fresh Gulf seafood so any time we are somewhere we can get it, we always try to make a stop. We have eaten at the Shrimp Basket in Gulf Shores many years ago and since we were going to be in Foley, I wanted to give this location a try. It did NOT disappoint! Our philosophy is... More

A year ago I ate at the Shrimp Basket as a tourist. I found it to be excellent and returned again this year. Previously I had eaten the Fried Shrimp Basket and it was great. This time I tried the gumbo and found it mediocre at best. This evening I returned to the Fried Shrimp Basket and it was excellent.... More

went for dinner and were immediately seated, wait staff are very friendly and attentive. the food was prepared to my liking and very delicious. you need to be able to tolerate "loud" snowbird conversation at nearby tables. definitely a return visit is warranted.

Stopped in for lunch. Ordered a shrimp and oyster basket. the shrimp were overcooked but the oysters were good. The service was prompt and attentive. Overall, it's an average place. Not expensive, not cheap. Good for lunch, but not a place I would take someone to impress them.

The food was good and reasonably priced and the service was fine. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated. My poboy was good and there was plenty of shrimp. It might... More
