Live in Lafayette, LA. We know good seafood. Recommended by a motel employee. She was right. Shrimp were prepared well and lots of them. Shrimp slaw was different, but good. Catfish poboy was like home. Wait staff excellent. If you want good seafood, you just found it.

This is a great place to go for shrimp. We had the shrimp basket and the shrimp and grits. The portions were large, the food was good, and the service was warm and friendly.What more could you want. We went back the next day and enjoyed it again.

The atmosphere is casual, but waitress very attentive and fast. Food came out fast I had steamed shrimp and my dad had fried catfish and shrimp. Both meals were exceptional. Will go back when visiting my dad again.

The fried shrimp were not as big as advertised, but they were good. Coconut shrimp not big but good. Sides were good. Price was moderate. This place is more like a fast food shrimp restaurant than a fine seafood place. Not bad for a shrimp fix along the Interstate but would not make it along the coast.

My friend recommended this place for seafood since it was close to where she lived. Just the name made me think, don't expect much. However, we started with a dozen raw oysters....Oh my. Heaven to my taste buds.Then we shared a basket of shrimp and catfish. Lightly battered just the way I like. I really wanted an adult beverage and... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner as we were passing through. The fried catfish, fried shrimp, new potatoes, fritters, hushpuppies and okra were all very good!! One of my kids had a burger and it was just ok, but who orders burgers at a place like this... The service was also very good!

I do not crave fried food much but when I am near the beach bring on the fried shrimp. We had oyster and shrimp baskets and they were really good. The fried shrimp were cooked perfectly and not heavily battered. My wife was unsure about the oysters. She thought they were good but they were small. I am going to... More

We eat at our local Shrimp Basket often in Fort Walton Beach and really like it so was an easy choice to try this one after a day of shopping in Pensacola. It did not disappoint. Service was friendly and prompt and the food tasty and reasonably priced. Grilled whitefish is a delicious, ample serving and seasoned just right to... More
