There are better options in this area to eat. The restaurant seemed dirty, the food was average, price was high for the quality, and the outdoor seating looks out over a very busy street. The floor looked like it hadn't been cleaned since they opened the restaurant

Pleasantly surprised with the food. Ate outside at lunch and was very nice. Our group loved the Mahi Mahi tacos, cheeseburger and tuna PO boy.

The Shrimp Basket is a must for everyone that visits Gulf Shores. They have the best fried shrimp and corn fritters in town. But since it is a MUST for everyone you have to time your visit appropriately to avoid a long wait. This is a small restaurant with a few tables inside and a few more outside and usually... More

My family and I enjoy eating here when we're at the beach. The food is consistently good. And we enjoy sitting on the patio.

Most customers want large quantities of food and to leave feeling really stuffed. You can do that at the Shrimp Basket, but you don't have to. They will gladly let you share a platter and that's all you need to be fully satisfied. Try the whitefish and shrimp which are prepared in a moist and crisp batter you will want... More

We visited with our 3 children during Shrimp Fest. Service was friendly, food was fast and fresh, and we sat and watched the CRAZY traffic trying to get into Shrimp Fest. Ordered the shrimp burger, stuffed crabs, coconut shrimp, and some sweet and spicy shrimp (forgot the name) and everything was great.

Thank James J
