It's hard to beat the Shrimp basket as far as value goes. You get an amazing amount of food in your order. The vegetables are great and the shrimp is fine considering you are in east, central Alabama. Lots of fried sides from hush puppies to fries.

Solid choice for shrimp. Awesome little hush puppies. Gumbo was good. Young people serving could use a few pointers on service, but no major issues.

The food was fresh and delicious, wish there were more options that were not fried. The service was fast and courteous. I highly recommend!

Had a great meal here. Portions are very generous, Food is hot and tastes great. At the table there was a variety of things from catfish, shrimp, gumbo and red beans with rice. All of the items were served hot and tasted great. Service was spot on.

Went on a Tuesday night which is 47 cents an oyster night. Had oysters, shrimp & grits. Very tasty. Staff was friendly & service good. Ordered food to go for the next day which was packed just the way I asked, (deconstructed)

Always enjoy The Shrimp Basket. This is the second visit to this particular restaurant and I was just as impressed the second time around. Four people and less than $60 is a pretty good deal considering the amount of food one is served. The service was great. The AC was in tip top shape plan to wear a jacket.

Excellent seafood. Excellent service. We had come to Auburn to visit our granddaughter. She enjoyed a jalapeño hamburger. We had shrimp, grilled whitefish and fried catfish. All was thoroughly enjoyed.
