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.

My wife and I had dinner there one Wednesday evening, the food was excellent, the staff was very friendly. Red snapper, the catch of the day was my favorite, while my wife chose the Seafood platter. I slipped a few crab claws from her plate. A great place to dine.

So I actually drove to Auburn from lagrange to try Ming House, which when I got there wasn't closed on Sunday but not a soul in the parking lot. So I kept travelling and found a Shrimp Basket. I had heard that they were sprouting up around Georgia. I went inside and was seated. I then had some very nice... More

Stop here on the way home from Atlanta to take our son out for a meal. The lighting is a little dark. The staff was friendly and everybody loved their order will repeat next time in area.

It's hard to find great seafood this far away from the coast, but here it is! Had the blackened shrimp basket and it was very good! I'll definitely be back here next time!

When we decided to try the Shrimp Basket on a recent trip to Auburn to visit our college student, I have to admit I didn't have high hopes. I was thinking it was probably a greasy fried fish place, which I am ok with, but once you've tried one of those, you've tried them all. But the good news is... More

We have visited before and knew that the food was so-so but when you are wanting raw or fried oysters there are not many places to go in Auburn. This visit was our last. It took a while for a waitress to appear in our area which was immediately at the entrance to the kitchen. Our meals were finally delivered... More
