About

It all began in 1993, when two local guys in Gulf Shores, Alabama decided to open up a casual family-focused seafood restaurant on the Gulf Coast. The first Shrimp Basket opened in what was once a small yogurt shop. The idea was to create a restaurant where people would feel welcome to be themselves, families could afford to dine out together and strangers would leave as friends. 

Coastal vacationers demanded that Shrimp Basket expand to provide this incredible seafood value to those unable to be at the beach year round. 

Today, we’re happy to offer locations in five states across the Southeast for family and friends to feel a part of the beach, dine and enjoy delicious seafood!

At the Shrimp Basket, our goal is to make sure that you - our friends -  leave happy and satisfied after every visit. Because with us, you are much more than a customer- you’re part of our family. 

We are grillin’, steamin’, and fryin’ for you!
