The wait staff were very kind and helpful. Still yummy food and just wanted some T-shirts to have since I didn't have mine from 1965. But they didn't seem to have a full on management, but food and service was good!

We had to go back to El Shrimp Bucket. It was so good in '92. It played out again as well. Awesome shrimp by the Kilo, Margaritas were good. Then, they fired up a great rock & roll band outside. We spent hours sipping and...More

El Shrimp Bucket was wonderful. The Shrimp Ceviche was the best that I have ever eaten and was large enough to share. I highly recommend El Shrimp Bucket.

We enjoyed a stop here during Carnaval! It had a great location, good food, and great service! They often have live music, and that just adds to the fun!

We had eaten here a few years ago and knew we would not be disappointed! (In fact, booked the hotel directly adjacent to the "Bucket" to be near by). Highly recommend the chilled peal and eat shrimp. Very accommodating servers, and excellent breakfast menu!

Stopped in for a couple cold beers and the tuna teranido. Delicious. It hit the spot. Worth every penny.

The liver Mexicano style with refried beans was tasty. The chilaquilas were not very good tasting a little stale. The egg was fresh and cooked perfectly and the steak was good but served in slices. Servers were friendly and efficient. Washrooms clean

After a morning of walking we stopped in for a milk shake. It was served in a tall glass with whip cream. Great Location on the Malecon.

I think you are thinking about The Shrimp Factory. The one close to the Playa Mazatlan.
