All my ratings are in the context of the price I paid. On that basis I rate the Shrimp Basket excellent. I was looking for a place that served seafood, nothing fancy, had a full bar, medium price, good service. I was alone so I sat at the bar, had a good drink, friendly service, very good oyster basket and... More

Avoid this location like the PLAGUE! Arrived at 6:30 on a Friday evening with a party of 7 in tow, all adults. Seated promptly, greeted well, and was able to immediately place out beverage and appetizer order. Fifteen (15) minutes later we received our beverages. Forty (40) minutes into our evening, we received our fried pickle chips and fried crab... More

The food was excellent, not gourmet, but very nice for a casual meal. We definitely will return. The fish tasted fresh and was prepared nicely. The service was also good and prompt. Although I like the taste of fried food, I never order it. I was delighted with the steamed option. It was tasty. I ordered a combo plate with... More

Delicious food. Don't like the Shrimp Slaw. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Clean restaurant and restrooms. We've eaten here several times and will eat there again. Much better than the one in Gulf Shores/Perdido Key.

We stopped in for a quick lunch. The server was great. Must try the coconut shrimp and hush puppies. Both are nice and crispy and not oily at all. The orange marmalade did for the shrimp was a little spicy ( I like that). Sweet tea was fresh.

Coconut shrimp big and good, shrimp skewer good,red beans and rice good, turnip greens excellent. Melted butter for shrimp skewer looked like a sauce but tasted like butter. Looked like squeeze butter. Service was very good. Lots of parking which was good since we were pulling a trailer. Would come back.

Tough choice between the shrimp and grouper. Crispy fried southern style. Staff is super friendly and fast. Be back soon.

Ive eaten at the shrimp basket several times and it hasn't let me down yet. Crazy as it sounds I find myself ordering the surf and turf burger more often than the actual "Shrimp Basket" but youll be satisfied no matter what you order. Now obviously this isn't a fresh seafood market right on the beach in panama city, but... More

This is just what is sounds like, an all you can eat fried shrimp and fish place with above average gumbo and delicious Cole slaw. Surprisingly, they have great tasting grilled fish/shrimp taco.
