“Great Raw Oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We were just passing thru Gulfport and saw it on the way to motel at airport. Asked hotel staff for recommendation and they also mentioned this place. My wife had raw oysters and we watched the staff shuck the oysters prior to serving. Unique place with friendly and helpful staff. My wife said the oysters were best she had on our current winter vacation. Also had crawfish poboy sandwich and they were incredible. On Monday they had margarita special that was also fantastic. Would definitely go back to this place when back in the area.

“Shrimp Basket Gulfport,Miss.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were visiting Biloxi and drove into Gulfport and saw "The Shrimp Basket", we have previously eaten at the one in Destin, FL. and it was very good so decided to give this one here a try. We ordered the popcorn shrimp basket and it was a good choice. It was a good sized portion and tasted good. The service also was great, we did not wait long at all for our food. I have read some of the other reviews that were not so good but our experience was different than theirs, we visited end of December-first of January. Overall it is a small restaurant .We enjoyed the food , the price was reasonable and the popcorn shrimp baskets we ordered were well proportioned , we will definitely be returning when visiting again.

“don't eat here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

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”
2 of 5 bubbles 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.
