The food is the gem here. The seafood tastes great and comes out quickly plus the service was wonderful. But you just have to get past the old fried food smell. Worth a visit though

I’ve frequently visited over the years and notified that since it’s opening they have declined a lot. Tonight my coconut shrimp was fried to much and my okra tasted uncooked . Not to mention this shrimp selection has not flavor and doesn’t compliment the dip that is paired with it. I’ve sat here 20 min and my server hasn’t asked me if I want a refill once.

I recently visited the shrimp basket location in Montgomery Alabama on Friday, June 7, 2019 @6:35pm. I was very disappointed in my meals. I called my order in the guy who took my order told me 10-15 mins I arrived 10 min earlier waited additional 15 min order still not ready. When I got it ( mind you I only live 5 minutes away). The food was not only cold,soggy as if it had been sittings up or previously cooked. Please donot forget salty! Times are hard enough to just throw away money on food that you can’t eat and that was $29 I spent for a seafood platter and catfish basket NEITHER was able to eat. I tried calling back to the establishment no answer! I would NEVER go back here or recommend this place to NO ONE!!!!!!!!

This was the friendliest place I have eaten in the Montgomery area. Saying "Hey" to you as soon as you walk in the door. Our server was very attentive, and the food came out so hot. That does not happen often. Loved it!
