Every time I order blackened fish, regardless of which Shrimp Basket I go to, it's always laying in a puddle of grease. And the fish is never cooked properly. It's always overcooked. I love blackened fish. It's just not the place to get it. Lesson learned. And there's an additional charge to ruin it. Ewwww.

This was my favorite place we ate at. Our server, Alexus K., was very friendly, helpful and is a wonderful young lady! The manager (whose name escapes me at the moment) was also very friendly and accommodating. The entire staff was excellent! The food was AMAZING!!! The atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. I will DEFINITELY be returning to the... More

My Dad and I dined at this Shrimp Basket; it is one of several locations in Pensacola. The server was friendly; but the staff seemed too small to quickly serve all the patrons efficiently.

We love the Shrimp Basket! We have visited 2 in Pensacola, and frequent the one in Mary Esther, FL. They always serve a nice meal that is more than enough to fill even the hungriest of people. The Grilled fish and grilled shrimp are excellently seasoned...very tasty! The cheese grits are the cheesiest we have had anywhere...our favorite side dish!... More

Have been there many times and usually enjoy the food and service. Someone in our party order the seafood platter and we were all amazed it was so small of a serving. Our waitress sent the manager, Chad, to our table and he had nothing to offer as far as the small portions. Very disappointing.

I have visited Gulf Shores where there is a Shrimp Basket, but have never eaten at theirs. On a night through Pensacola we decided to eat here. Accessed the online menu before eating here, so I knew the menu options and prices. My daughter ordered steamed shrimp and felt they were bland, but my husband tried them and said they... More

We ordered beers, grilled shrimp and oysters. It was quick and easy. Very laid back. This is a chain so you will see them everywhere you go in the area.

Live in Lafayette, LA. We know good seafood. Recommended by a motel employee. She was right. Shrimp were prepared well and lots of them. Shrimp slaw was different, but good. Catfish poboy was like home. Wait staff excellent. If you want good seafood, you just found it.

This is a great place to go for shrimp. We had the shrimp basket and the shrimp and grits. The portions were large, the food was good, and the service was warm and friendly.What more could you want. We went back the next day and enjoyed it again.
