I had the White Fish with Etouffe. The fish was probably Tilapia, I would have preferred a mahi mahi, something with more substance to it. Otherwise the fish was good, the etouffe was delicious. I just wish there was more Shrimp in my shrimp etouffe.

Last evening my wife and I and a mutual friend went to dinner at the Shrimp Basket. She and I had all U can eat catfish for ten- ninety five. Our friend had grilled whitefish all U can eat.
The batter they use on the fried is Excellent! They were a little slow on re-orders and you only get 2 fillets per. I guess this gives your stomach a chance to fill up between orders. Our friend loved his fish that was grilled.
We have eaten at this particular restaurant before and always had a pleasurable experience. I do recommend the Fried Shrimp. Gulf caught, butterflied, and delicious!!!
We arrived at 6 pm and by 7 the place was slammed (Tues night. ) No room and a waiting line.
Also, a very bright and loud atmosphere. Talking at the table was more like yelling.
Overall, Id go again and probably at 5 pm, to avoid the crowd.

We enjoy dining at The Shrimp Basket! You can enjoy the flavors of the beach without having a long drive. The catfish filets basket is moist and fried perfectly to enhance the flavor of the fish. The oyster and shrimp platter was equally as delicious with a light breading fried to a golden brown but definitely not overcooked. All entrees are served with Shrimp Basket's signature shrimp slaw, which is awesome, and your choice of sides. We enjoy the new potatoes, corn on the cob or French fries. We will definitely go back to The Shrimp Basket, both at the Auburn location and several others scattered around the Southeast!

We normally eat at the Shrimp Basket in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach areas so we were excited when they opened one in Auburn! The food is always fresh, cooked well and affordable. They have different AYCE specials certain nights of the week. We did the AYCE fried shrimp. Yum! Try the coleslaw (it has little shrimp in it) and the potato salad - both fantastic!!
