“Nice little no frill eating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

We had a nice shrimp & clam dinner here. Was able to sit outside and enjoy the evening. This is a no fuss place, no fancy anything. The food was good, reasonable and we had a great server who met all our needs. Would not hesitate to go there again.:

“Yum O Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Awesome place with all you can eat Shrimp! A buck more gets you grilled instead of fried!

Only real complaint, food service is slower than other places.

“Great tasting and great deal on shrimp!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Went here based on reviews, they are pretty accurate. We was wanting peel and eat shrimp and we got more than we could eat with the steamed shrimp plate ( contained over 1/2lb shrimp). With the plate you also get new potatoes, corn, and shrimp slaw! All was delicious and only cost 12.99. Everyone loved their food the only downfall of the restaurant was their service which was slow! If they get the service fixed will be the perfect restaurant!

“Slow service and low quality food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stopped in for a nice dinner at the Shrimp Basket. It took about 40 minutes to get our food after we ordered it (the place was far from busy). The waitress kept apologizing and saying bad things about the cooks. When my husband received his combo platter, we all looked at it and asked if there was another plate coming. He had 2 VERY small pieces of fish and 4 shrimp. The waitress told him that the portion size was normal. She also told him that she was a manager but changed her story about 5 times in the same story. We were very disappointed in the food and the service.
