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

Wednesday night is the rock & roll band and it is very pleasant to sit outside with a view of the beach, good food and live music.

Had lunch here for three people. Lots of Pacifico Lights and bacon-wrapped shrimp. Nothing better. Nice atmosphere sitting outside watching people and the ocean. We were there during a "marihala", I think it means "rough ocean", because the waves were huge and smashing against the seawall. Cool sight to see.

On a previous trip to Mazatlan, we ate at their breakfast buffet, which was excellent, so on this trip we decided to try it for supper. Several of us ordered the shrimp bucket, which comes with a choice of 3 kinds of shrimp, with fries. The coconut shrimp and breaded shrimp were delicious, but the beer battered shrimp were soggy...

Its located in my favorite part of town Olas Altas, right in front of the malecon. Its a great place to people watch and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere. It is family friendly... More

We had shrimp wrapped in bacon, fried in garlic and butter, to die for. The beer was cold, the service was just over the top. We were here on an evening tour of the city, this tour is worth it just to eat here. If I ever go back to Mazatlan, I will go here again.
