Were headed back to Dauphin Island and stopped here about 3 to grab a quick bite. Don't know what made us turn in;maybe the ketchey name. Was almost deserted at this time of day save locals. Waitresses were super nice including ours which was in training. After perusing the menu decided why would you go to a place named The... More

My family and I love Shrimp Basket. This is a normal stop for us as we are around Gulf Shores. Their specials are always good. Fried shrimp, fried fish, steamed shrimp.....all great! My wife always gets the crawfish po-boy and loves it. Their sides are delicious. Try their key lime pie. Mmmmmmm!

I had read so much about steamed shrimp in the south and had never had it until we stopped here. It was good. More work than I'd like to do when it comes to eating, but the taste was good and so was the price. My wife got stuffed crab that was tasty as well. I recommend going at slow... More

Three of us ate there Wednesday about 7pm. My wife and son both got the Shrimp and Oyster combo.The shrimp and oysters were good sized with turnip greens, fries, and coleslaw. I had the all you could eat shrimp with fries and slaw and the waitress brought more shrimp quickly. We also got gumbo and it was very good. I... More

Shrimp Basket is a chain out of Gulf Shores, Alabama, and although one is coming to our area, I had never eaten at one. At a recent lunch there, I found that it's a pretty doggone good place for seafood at very decent prices. I had--what else?--a shrimp basket, which was $12.00 and included a dozen shrimp fried very nicely,... More

Anywhere I try a Shrimp Basket I am never disappointed. We stopped here in Foley as we were headed to the beach and I was glad we did. Our first seafood meal of our trip!! I always get the grouper basket with new potatoes and it is great. The food is good with a good price. Don't expect fancy but... More

My wife had the Shrimp & Grits, & I had the blackened Shrimp po-boy. Both were delicious. There was nothing subpar about this small chain seafood restaurant. Every bit as good as the corporate places down by the shore with cheaper prices. We will definitely make this a staple of our beach trips.
