On vacation we always visit Shrimp Basket! We love their Fried Shrimp and that amazing signature Coleslaw! They have great sweet tea. Today we had wonderful service. The food was fresh and HOT. And we were served quickly. Always a favorite! 🦐

This was a simple place, yet awesome and delicious! The shrimp were lightly fried and perfect. The best I had at the beach in fact. The lunch prices were good, and portions were large. The patio was nice as well as location. I recommend!

Service was excellent but the food while good was not great. Party of 11 so things took a little while, but that was expected.

I had the fried oyster basket. Husband chose the shrimp basket. It was ok but nothing special. Being in Gulf Shores I guess I expected the seafood to be really fresh tasting. Tasted rather bland and just like the Shrimp Basket in Montgomery AL. Won't...More
