Stopped as we were strolling the malecon to refresh ourselves with two cold beers. The menu was very tempting, except it was not yet lunch time. The sound of the surf is just across the street where it is perfect for a Kodak moment! We will be back for shrimp on next visit. Many recommendations. Oh, beers were $20 pesos... More

Shrimp Bucket has become our favorite place to eat in Mazatlan since we've been coming here for the last 35 years.

Dined here several times - once for appetizers/drinks and twice for breakfast while staying at La Siesta hotel. Appetizers were good and drinks were strong. Hotel had a good breakfast offer in conjunction with the restaurant. Staff were friendly. They also had karaoke one evening.

We had breakfast there every day, Manuel was a great help to us as our spanish is not the greatest. Food was delicious, we also had the shrimp bucket and couldn't believe the size of the shrimp. Enjoyed the music in the evening, the band Kracking is a must, Leslie's voice is unbelievable

The food is very good. I don't eat seafood, so the selection was a bit limited, but I went for the live music. The service was excellent & really enjoyed the whole evperience! Manny was so helpful & professional! Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Three of us shared the shrimp boat. Lots of fried shrimp. They had mariachi dancers performing during lunch. We enjoyed our visit.

We had some great shrimp cocktails and good fried shrimp. A classic place with interesting environment but too much fried food. Service was good and attentive and great prices. Will return one day but not in a big hurry.

Well, the fish tacos were great! Not sure about the rest because we were only there a week and every time we went to the Shrimp Bucket, we just had to get the fish tacos again! Be sure to get a side of their guacamole sauce as well,

We have eaten here a few times over the years, but did not particularly enjoy this experience. It wasn't overly busy and we felt that service could have been better. My grilled swordfish was "mushy" and it may have been frozen and not fresh. I was told they didn't have draft beer but later saw another table with draft beer.... More
