Always stop at Shrimp Basket for our Seafood. Good portions and delicious oysters and shrimp. The waitress was very attentive and made sure we had plenty of food. Gumbo was very good also.

Shrimp Basket has delicious fresh seafood and is a comfortable atmosphere. Service is outstanding and friendly. Prices are between $10 and $20 for a platter for dinner, and the coconut shrimp appetizer is the perfect portion! Definitely recommended!
