My son and I made our first trip to The Shrimp Basket in Tuscaloosa, this past Friday. We had a great lunch. Food and service was great.
It's nice to have them open a place in Tuscaloosa.

It was just ordinary....nothing bad about it. At least the wait time was minimal, food hot and waitress friendly.

The night we were there they had all-you-can eat steamed shrimp for $13.99 with new red potatoes, corn on the cob and coleslaw with baby shrimp. They also had raw oysters for 35 cents each. As we'd never had them before we just ordered two, one for each of us. We asked our waitress (she was awesome by the way!) how they were supposed to be eaten and she said some people just slurped them down whole, but then offered to show us how she eats them by dipping them in cocktail sauce and putting them on a cracker with a bit of lemon juice squeezed on top. They were delicious so we ordered a half dozen more. We really enjoyed eating here and would definitely go back!

I've been a Shrimp Basket customer 4 times now and deciding between the grilled or blackened selections is very difficult. The shrimp cole slaw that accompanies almost all meals is really good.Fried is only one choice on the menu.
