We ate at the Shrimp Basket for the first time this week. We enjoyed the all you can eat shrimp special. The shrimp and the sides tasted fresh and homemade. Great value for the money.

Had the fried seafood basket. It's what you would expect, choice of seafood and side and comes with fries and slaw. Our waiter was nice and service was quick considering how busy they were.

Yes, but like the other responders, I am not sure what day(s) the special is offered. The Shrimp Basket is a bargain in any event for every order we have tried.
