“Great family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

We ate here a couple of times the week we were in Destin. I have to say this is an excellent place for lunch or dinner. It is reasonably priced and the service is prompt and very courteous. I highly recommend this for lunch or dinner.

This is a chain and it tastes like it for sure, there are many seafood resturants around here that serve local shrimp and have great prices. Find one.

“LOVED IT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We ate here and LOVED it! They give you a ton of food here for the price! I had the fried shrimp and oyster basket. It was so delicious. Definitely do not overlook this place it's so much better than some of the high end places!

“Great food for the price!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

I have dined at the Shrimp Basket several times during my annual trips to Destin. The seafood baskets are always delicious and a good size portion. I love their hushpuppies! My family as ordered a variety of their meals, and all have been really good. It is a great place right off of 98 and is a casual dine-in restaurant. It can get busy during the typical dining times, so try an off time. Enjoy!
