We called ahead to order sandwiches to go. They were ready when we got there and the server who helped us was really friendly and helpful. The shrimp po-boys were delicious! I love the Shrimp Basket!

I wasn't sure what we were getting into but we ended up really loving this place. The shrimp was good and the corn fritters were to die for. They were a little stingy with the fritters as part of the meal so we had to order a side. I'm from the south and I liked the hush puppies but my... More

Blackened shrimp is good, soup is very good! Nice atmosphere. Only complaint... only Miller lite on tap. But, that's minor. Consistently good (stop here often).

A restaurant that's rather filthy has a strike against it to begin with. This Shrimp Basket needed a good scrubbing. Very nasty floors. Food was bleh. Didn't cost quite as much as other seafood joints, but it shouldn't. Wasn't my worst dining experience, but they gave me no reason to go back.
