With four restaurants on the Alabama Gulf Coast and just across the line in Perdido Key, you are never far from the friendly service and delicious seafood that the Shrimp Basket is famous for.
Once you decide on the location, deciding what to eat is either a breeze or a challenge, depending on how you look at it. It’s a breeze because everything on the menu is yummy. It’s a challenge because you’ll have to narrow down your selections.
We say start off with a dozen hushpuppies and an order of fried pickle chips… you know, just to warm up your taste buds.
Then order a basket. The best strategy is for each person to order something different so you can share. Maybe you’ll pick the Fried Popcorn Shrimp Basket, or perhaps the Fried Crab Claw Basket, or the Fried Stuffed Crab Basket. And if you can’t pick just one, go for the Seafood Platter which is loaded with Shrimp, Oysters, Fish and Stuffed Crab.
Not a fan of fried seafood? No worries. The Shrimp Basket isn’t opposed to grilling or steaming. In fact, they serve up an amazing Shrimp Country Boil complete with corn, new potatoes and slaw.
Okay, we’ve got to go. We’re craving the Shrimp Basket and we’re closest to the Gulf Shores location. See you there!
