“Big Surprise”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This eatery was recommended to us by our motel clerk as an easy, casual place with really fresh seafood. We were a party of 4 adults and two kids - 6 and 13 - and it was a everything and more for a family seafood meal. It's a relatively small and very casual, "low atmosphere" (intended as a compliment) place to relax and eat a basket-type seafood meal with beer or soft drinks. It wouldn't stand out in a drive-by but it stood out in our experience there. I give it high marks for exceeding our needs at the time.

“Something For Everyone”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Good service, good food. We always appreciate options for kids, too. Great little hidden gem located by the local.
We'll eat here again if back in Pensacola.

“Love the fried oysters!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had been taken to a Shrimp Basket last year so found one on our own this trip. Oysters were as yummy as I remembered. Cole slaw was good. Service was prompt and pleasant. Prices were fairly reasonable.

“Roach Infested”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

The Shrimp Basket is infested with roaches. Three little ones were crawling in the corner of our booth and our server also said the fish came from Thiland. If I wanted to eat bugs then Id go outside. The meal would be equivelant.

“One step from heaven”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Absolutely WONDERFUL. Great food, great service, great prices, great atmosphere. No wait time like at the beach where everything is crowded and overpriced.
