Visited here before and it is still the yucky food as before. Do not understand why anyone goes here, the slaw is soggy, shrimp are chewy.

I had the "Shrimp Basket" at the Shrimp Basket and it was delightful. Twelve plump shrimp fried in a light crispy batter with hush puppies and corn fritter and two sides. The sides are worth your trip alone. The delicious coleslaw has shrimp in it...More

The Shrimp Basket shrimp basket dinner was great. Especially with BOGO coupon from the 2017 calendar, the shrimp were perfectly fried. The shrimp slaw and they have some of the best cheese grits. Can't wait to go back!

On the second Tuesday of each month Shrimp Basket has an oyster special, 43 cents each. They do a land office type of business that day and the oysters are FRESH and excellent. My wife likes but does not love oysters as I do so...More

If you want to eat great seafood while on the coast, Shrimp Basket isn't the best option. They have a decent-sized menu focussing on seafood, with other options for non-seafood lovers. My husband's shrimp etoufee was just bad, my granddaughter's hamburger bun was burned, and...More
