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!!!

With the name "Shrimp Basket" you certainly wouldn't expect a fine dining experience. This is a very laid back atmosphere which I think is perfect for a beach vacation! I ordered the fried shrimp basket and my husband got the chicken po'boy. Both were excellent....More
