We visited with our kids for dinner on a Thursday night. We were seated right away (surprising, at 6pm!) outside on the covered deck. Service was ok, but the food was great! Portions were big, especially the kids meals. The kid shrimp meal was big enough to feed an adult. The meals come with a little corn fritter... I wish... More

We are local so we are spoiled by real seafood restaurants (fresh caught). All I have to say is the shrimp seems imported (may not be but must be just under the legal limit) and everything seems old or frozen. The service is fair but the price point is on the lower end but you get what you pay for.... More

It's a large restaurant in Orange Beach (smaller, original in Gulf Shores). We stopped in for lunch and were seated right away. The fried shrimp was great, and they gave you 12!! I couldn't even finish mine. Fries, hush puppies and corn fritters are all good. They have a bar, but we all just drank Ice Tea.

My family and I have been traveling to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores/Perdido Key area for the better part of 16 years and our favorite place to eat has always been the Shrimp Basket. They have consistently excellent fresh food and courteous service. On a week-long stay, we will eat at the Shrimp Basket at least three times during our stay.... More

This is one of the more affordable and yet very good seafood places on Orange Beach. You can find swankier joints, but the Shrimp Basket offers very good food and won't break the bank. We loved sitting in the outdoor seating. The wait staff is friendly and the children's offerings are excellent. One tip: get there early for dinner as... More

We ordered the shrimp dinners and the whitefish dinner. Shrimp were plentiful and good. We really liked the sides we got with our dinners. The fritters were small but very tasty. The hushpuppies were good too. I got the potato salad for my side and my husband had the red potatoes. Mine was ok, but the red potatoes were really... More

We tried this out for lunch upon arriving as we were stating at Island House across the street. It was perfect for what we wanted we shared a shrimp po boy and Onion rings wanting something but not wanting to ruin dinner and it was perfect we were both full and it was delicious and unbelievably fast service!

Shrimp basket is always a great place for a quick meal. Blackened fish sandwich and shrimp sandwich are always good. Slaw with shrimp is also great. This is the kids favorite place for grilled cheese !!
