Food is okay. Mixed drinks were weak. The food needed seasoning but the service was really impressive. Very friendly waitstaff.

Other Shrimp Baskets in the area made every effort to accommodate a shellfish allergy. I was with a group of 10 therefore I went along for the friendship and conversation. The waitress said she spoke with the chef and they would pan sear my whitefish....More

We apologize for your bad experience with us, John. Unfortunately, the only two sides that have an additional $1.49 uncharge on any entree is the broccoli and onion rings. The silverware should always be very clean, we actually get all new silverware very frequently in...More

Food is ok but I really hate the atmosphere. It’s slways loud and no sense of intimacy or privacy. Always full off the senior crowd and families with kids. Also the staff is always young girls who feel entitled to tips rather than earning them.

I’ve hit the Shrimp Basket a number of times and it’s still a good place for quick seafood. If you’re not into extravagant dishes and just want some good fried seafood at a good price, this is your place. The atmosphere is relaxed, it’s close...More

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.
