Great location to take family and have a quick seafood meal. Also offered a variety of other food. All you can eat boiled shrimp was a favorite.

The food was great but service was not prepared for the amount of customers so it was a little slow and hard for them to keep up with the tables but again it was great seafood especially if you like fried food.

If you came to Gulf Shores and did not eat at Shrimp Basket, then you have to come right back. This is the home of casual seafood dining with lots of locations. Kids love it. House salad is the best then there is the grilled shrimp by the pound.

We love going to the Shrimp Basket - sometime service isn't the fastest, but the food is worth it. If you want good oysters (seasonal) and fried seafood - this is the place. Their oysters, po boys, shrimp and clams are my faves. Shrimp Basket is always on my "to do" list while in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores. We... More

But I highly recommend the... More

About 40 minutes after ordering our food, our waitress came and asked for our order again as they had lost our order. We then waited another 30 minutes. We then just told them we were going to leave. Then the manager came by the table and... More
