About Shrimp Basket It all began in 1993, when two locals in Gulf Shores, Alabama decided to open a casual family-focused seafood restaurant on the Gulf Coast. 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. Shrimp Basket is the way to the beach. Celebrating the laid-back experience and flavors of the Gulf Coast, Shrimp Basket is where the locals, tourists and enlightened gather with friends and family for great food and luscious drinks, while enjoying our heartfelt southern hospitality. Shrimp Basket has made its name offering up quality, affordable Gulf Coast cuisine. We all have a variety of food moods, so our menu provides—from light to fulfilling and driven by our love for comfort seafood, freshness and innovation. We work to make every meal delicious and memorable. You can taste the love.

Shrimp Basket is a part of Artistry Restaurants, a boutique restaurant group committed to the art of hospitality, offering its guests memorable experiences and its team members opportunities to thrive and grow. Artistry currently owns and operates 5 distinct brands comprised of 28 restaurants and has one additional restaurant under development. Artistry’s portfolio includes Oak & Stone Craft Beer & Artisan Pizza, a 6-unit, high volume New American tavern offering craft beer and whiskeys, artisanal wood-fired pizzas, craft burgers, signature wood-oven wings and healthy salads featuring fresh and local ingredients. Guests also “craft their own experience” by pouring from the largest restaurant self-serve beer wall in the state of Florida. Oak & Stone is designed to create an exciting, interactive environment to enjoy great food and drink with family and friends, with each location also offering outdoor dining options. In addition to opening additional company-owned restaurants, Artistry plans to begin franchising Oak & Stone later this fall.
