I went to eat here and an angry employee told me that their seafood is all imported out of country. Only the oysters are fresh. How can they lie to us like this? I dont understand

Felt ripped off

I've been here several times and it is generally pretty good for the money, however this time I feel like I didn't get what I paid for. I had the blackened catfish with crawfish étouffée, the catfish was good could have been spicier, but the étouffée was a big disappointment, very bland, thin and watery, and only 4 crawfish tails. I didn't say anything because it might have caused a scene with some family members but I won't be ordering that again.

worth the wait

Best Oysters and Shrimp in Gulf Shores or Anywhere

The beach is the best thing about a trip to Gulf Shores. The Shrimp Basket may be the next best thing. You will not find better fried oysters, shrimp and fish than at a Shrimp Basket in Gulf Shores and a few nearby fortunate neighbors. Their seafood beats the East and West coasts, and is tops on the Gulf Coast where I grew up loving great seafood. I am especially particular about how I like my oysters. The oysters are crispy on the outside, not greasy and soggy like some folks prepare them, and firm and delicious on the inside.

Baskets come with shrimp slaw, their version of cold slaw made even more delicious by tiny shrimp. Brews are served cold and daiquiris are good. Their key lime pie makes for a great finish. Service is efficient and Value is amazing, especially in a beach resort town with a lot of overpriced tourist traps with long lines.

I loved it !!

It was my wife and I's first time to Gulf Shores and a good friend of mine reccommended that I try eating at "the shrimp basket" and I was so glad that I did. the food was A+++ , service was great, atmosphere inside and out really makes you feel like your on vacation ! I had never tried fried oysters before we ate there, I tried them and they were great ! I would tell everyone I know about this little restaurant.. and very nicely placed next to a giant souvenir shop, so stuff yourself full and go shopping with your family after ! My mouth is watering all the way in Kansas City just thinking about there shrimp, I cant wait for the next trip there. KP and family

Best Seafood in Gulf Shores, AL

I always make it a point to make it to the Shrimp Basket when I go down to Gulf Shores. I'm a married man now and have a 4-person family. This is the main reason that I pick the Shrimp Basket. I know that the food is going to come out quickly and not on a plate that's 1000 degrees. I know that the food is going to taste good. The service is consistently good. We have had several of their servers take great care of us. This is one of the restaurants in Gulf Shores that tends to have little turnover on the wait staff. We see the same servers year after year. They must be doing something right. Their location is more than handy being right by Souvenir City and in the middle of the beach area. I would simply recommend getting a shrimp basket from the menu. Of Course!

I'd recommend the Shrimp Basket to anyone looking for good food fast at a reasonable price. It is very family friendly.
