I got the catch of the day which was snapper, it was great. My girlfriend got the shrimp basket. The shrimp were nice and big. My kids got the chicken strips which they enjoyed. I would eat there again.

My wife and I had taken off of work on a Friday to take care of personal errands and decided to eat at Shrimp Basket's new location in Gulfport. We'd eaten at their place in Gulf Shores before and didn't have any complaints then.

I got their daily special, which was all you can eat fried fish (catfish or whitefish; your choice) and my wife got the mahi mahi tacos. We sat outside; the inside was packed. It was rainy and chilly outside but under their canopy they have a very powerful heater that kept the area warm. However, it was turned on and off 4 times during the course of the meal because individual customers would complain to their waitress, who would then go cut it on/off. This made it very uncomfortable to eat.

The food was reasonably priced considering what seafood is going for these days. Both of our meals ran about $9-10 without drinks. Higher than we normally pay for lunch but that's just us.

Our server checked on us every 2 minutes or so until the food was there, giving us reassurances it would be done soon. Once we got our food, we only saw her again nearly 30 minutes later. We had to grab 2 separate waitresses for refills of water and to get a refill on my catfish. After waiting forever, both waitresses brought out two more baskets of catfish. I know its not acceptable, but I gave one to my wife because....

She ordered her mahi mahi tacos grilled, and they came out fried. Due to not being able to get our waitress to assist us, she decided to eat them. Problem: there was maybe one single filet of mahi mahi..across BOTH tacos. It looked like they cooked one filet, cut it in half, and pressed it down to the bottom and piled lettuce, tomato, etc on top to cover the skimpy portions. Oh, and saying these meals come with hushpuppies is a joke; mine came with 2 and my wife's came with 1.
