Based on all of the good reviews we tried the Shrimp Basket last evening. It will be our last visit there. We were seated out side at a table that was wet and had chunks of food all over it. Our waitress had at least 5 tables and a trainee. To be fair it could have been that she was overwhelmed rather than a poor waitress, either way it was not good. We had to almost beg for drink refills. I asked for a glass of water that never came. The food was ok. One son ordered a house special of catfish with etouffe over rice and he really liked it. I had a shrimp po boy..this consisted of luke warm fried shrimp on a cold hoggie bun with contiments plus cold, soggy french fries. I also ordered a cup of etouffe but received a cup of gumbo. Normally I do not like gumbo, but I admit this was pretty good. My husband and other son ordered cheese burgers. Neither liked them. My husband ate approx 1/3 of his and my son literally took only one bite. The waitress never asked either about their food, never offered a box, she just hustled away the plates on a rare visit to our table. We saw no evidence of a manager or anyone other than young, frazzled waitresses.

Stayed a week in Orange Beach and made a trip to our 3rd Shrimp Basket- had already eaten at the ones in Gulf Shores and Foley. After our first stop in 2010, this became a favorite place for my grand daughter who is 13 now. She a fried shrimp connoisseur :) and loves the Shrimp Basket best.

The meal at the Orange Beach restaurant was terrific as usual, the waitress was good and food came hot and tasty. Thanks Shrimp Basket!

We have eaten at several Shrimp Basket locations and have not been disappointed at any of them. Always good, fresh food at a reasonable price.
