Just spending the night in Tillman’s Corners and needed a quick bite to eat. Checked out Trip Advisor and went here for dinner. The restaurant had a rustic look to it, both inside and out. The waitstaff were very friendly and helpful with the menu...warning...More

Nice, casual, seafood themed and friendly. Servers are very nice and will help with suggestions. Their shrimp slaw side dish is awesome.

We weren't expecting a gourmet meal, but just fast seafood. The oysters on the half shell were quite good. The fried seafood we had was mediocre. Our server was quite friendly, helpful and responsive. Would definitely come back for the oysters.

Wife and I eat at Shrimp Basket Restaurants often- across Alabama, Florida and Gulf Coast. So, we know what they are like. The slaw did not have shrimp like at other locations. The Shrimp were rather hard and too crispy. But, they did cook over....More

Well. This just wasn’t good, period. The fried clam strips seemed to be ground up something, not even real clam strips. The batter was terrible. We will never return & will never recommend it.

... for excellent food. Quantities were generous, and it was freshly prepared (fried items were NOT soggy). Service was good both times we ate there, but they could have used another server Monday evening.

This place was a real mixed bag for us. It's very casual and good for families. My husband ordered coconut shrimp and I ordered a shrimp and oyster basket. When our order was served, there was no coconut shrimp and two shrimp and oyster baskets....More

Only fried food today, they're remodeling and just open the doors at 3:20pm. Cash only, card machine was down and only side dishes were fries or fried okra. I was really wanted some blackened or grilled fish. Oh well maybe next time!
