If you're here for a week choose Tuesday for the all you can eat steamed shrimp. Best steamed shrimp and the price is right! Servers are fast & friendly and the hostess cleans up quickly making it a nice environment to eat in! Outside deck is comfortable.

Not impressed. First they jam you right next to others where it was impossible to move and overheard every conversation from every table around you. The view was the busiest street and a souvenir shop. All fried food and had no taste. Mixed drinks and food all served in plastic. You would expect better prices but still expensive. Better value...

The food was awesome. I had the Etouffee and it was full of flavor with just the right spice. We started with the Boom Boom Shrimp which are some of the best around.

We ate here twice. Once for lunch and again for dinner. Both meals were very good. The wait staff was polite and attentive. You can choose patio seating which is great for people watching or sit inside. We did both.

While on our beach trip, we ate at four different Shrimp Baskets. We loved sitting on the patio. We love the fried shrimp and crawfish. It was delicious!!!

Plenty of food for money. Especially like to carry out to eat at condo when just too lazy to dress and eat out after day in sun.

Definitely the place to go for good shrimp (& sides). The new potatoes, shrimp slaw are the perfect sides. I come to Gulf Shores every year & eat at the Shrimp Basket almost every day for lunch. Very laid back & comfortable atmosphere & always packed. But that is because their food is so good. The Catfish is excellent too.... More

Have had good fried shrimp here, and it's very casual so a cover up over beach attire is okay. Ordered a pina colada, but was served a daiquiri... not the same thing! I don't know if they don't know how to make a pina colada, but I never could get one here. Food is pretty good though.

Eat here everyone I come to Orange beach and haven't been disappointed. Blackened shrimp and blackened catfish. A must try if you like blackened seasoning
