My wife and I went to the Shrimp Basket for lunch. She ordered the Shrimp Po'Boy sandwich and I ordered the Shrimp Basket. The food was wonderful, service was very good and a delightful time was had. Prices were very reasonable. We will eat here again.

We stopped for a quick lunch last week and ordered their gumbo. The gumbo was tasty, however, I have a big problem with having the gumbo served in styrofoam bowls...not sure if all their food is served that way but we were turned off by this and most likely will not be returning.

Will not return. Fried shrimp were way too greasy for my taste. Service was adequate but disinterested. If you go,?i hope you have better luck than I did.

If you like fried seafood, this is your place. A good beer selection to add the your meal. The service was friendly.

Never been to a Shrimp Basket before -- but this one is a good one. Great shrimp, lots of 'em, nicely seasoned. Surprise - beer was served is a very small glass. Kitchen was fast, server was attentive, atmosphere impersonal and blah.

A chain restaurant serving frozen seafood. One platter of fried shrimp was served up fried in the shells. They do have grilled and boiled seafood options.

Avoid this place unless you like eating bland, greasy food in a restaurant where even the floors and tables seem to be perpetually coated in grease with servers that don't really care one way or another if you even exist.

I arrived in Orange Beach starving & dashed across the street from my condo to grab some late lunch at The Shrimp Basket. I've eaten at several of these and, although the menu is pretty consistent, the quality of the food has varied a bit. I ordered a fish & shrimp basket - about $14 - and thought that was... More
