Don't eat here.

Quality only so-so, quantity terrible compared to Shrimp Baskets in Mobile and
Gulf Shores. Manager could not have cared less.

Picture on tripadvisor site is not a picture of the interior of the restaurant; picture
is as misleading as the Shrimp Basket name on the sign is.

Plenty of good seafood restaurants on the Miss Gulf Coast. Shrimp Basket
Gulfport isn't one of them.

Don't eat here.

“Small portions”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

This was my first time to this popular chain . I found the prices high and the portions small. The oysters were fresh but very small. The shrimp was tasty . The food was greasy . I think the oil needed changing.

“All You can Eat Shrimp”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Our staff members have dined in the Mobile and Gulfport locations in the past. Recently we brought four employees into the Mobile location for lunch. Each time the food was really good. However, the service was somewhat slow. The break between ordering and being served could be somewhat quicker, especially during lunch. However, the waitstaff are friendly and helpful.

Staff members have tried the all you can eat shrimp special in Mobile and Gulfport locations and have been completely satisfied.

Average is probably the correct term for this place. I thought the shrimp etouffee was a bit greasy, but it tasted ok. The blackened fish could have been a bit spicier for my taste. The shrimp cole slaw wasn't any different than regular slaw, so I'm not sure what the point was. The beer was cold.

“Always good!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I have eaten here many times in the past year, the prices are right, and the food is always good! I typically try to avoid “chain” restaurants, but this one keeps me and my family coming back.
