“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I've eaten at the Shrimp Basket in Tuscaloosa four times. I've tried the fried shrimp and catfish fillets. Both were very good. I really enjoy the catfish fillets. Each time I had the all you could eat special. Each time the service was very slow. I obviously like the food enough to return, but don't go that often because of the time it takes to get in and out. There is not much of an atmosphere. However, if you want some good catfish and have the time, check it out.

“Wonderful seafood”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great variety of seafood cooked three ways. I feel like I'm at the beach without the drive. Even the casual atmosphere is beachy!
Staff has always been super friendly and attentive.

“Over one hour.”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Service was terrible water over a hour for food and when we got it was cold. The manager was walking around wearing what looked like a nightee on and half her a## hanging out when she bent over. This is not Hotters. Glad no kids werein there. I have been to all the other resterants in the gulf area and never got bad service. Will never eat here again. Very bad service and if it had my name on the building I would change thing around there are get someone else to run it wright.
