Shrimp Basket does seafood right.
This place has more of a "local" feel than a tourist trap. The dishes my party of 5 ordered were all great, the portions were large and the prices were very moderate for Destin.
The Shrimp Basket doesn't have the harbor view but they don't have the harbor prices either.

Go here for Alaskan White Fish, The whitefish basket comes with one side and hush puppies. There was plenty of fish included and the total price was about 10. the best I remember.

The grilled shrimp are average but good.

The cocktail sauce is great.

The fries taste like Burger King.

The broccoli tasted microwaved.

The fried whitefish is why I returned to the Shrimp Basket more than once. It's excellent and inexpensive.

The soft drink was extra sweet and yummy.

The waitstaff is pushed to the limit, but doing their best to keep up with demand, our food was great and plenty of it for a reasonable price...I'm going back tomorrow for the shrimp poboy.

It was good as a quick bite. The place stays pretty busy, so the waitstaff seems too occupied to care. The food itself was fried, pretty tasteless, nothing substantive.

We went and it was packed. The wait to be seated wasn't that long so I had high hopes. The waitress came over and took our drink order and left 15 minutes later she brought our drinks. Then we ordered our food. She wander off then came back to the table that was next to us where 2 guys were sitting and talked to them for 20 minutes then went served another table and went back to the 2 guys. Then went back. Took another order and stop by to flirt with the guys again. After 45 minutes and still no food, we complained to the manager. The manager in formed us that the waitress only entered the order 15 minutes before we complained. When they did brought it out it was cold. Never will go there again.
