Shrimp Basket - Gulf Shores

As soon as we got to Gulf Shores we headed to Shrimp Basket to eat lunch. We were seated immediately on the front porch dining area. It started to rain so it was nice to sit outside under the covered porch. I ordered the Mahi Tacos grilled with potato salad, coleslaw and hushpuppies. To drink I ordered a strawberry daiquiri, my favorite summertime drink. I really liked their potato salad. It did not have a strong mayonnaise taste but it was creamy and had pieces of bacon in it. Everything was good.

After lunch we went to check in and then went to the grocery store for breakfast, lunch and snacks to keep at the condo. We are staying at Grand Beach Resort condos. Excuse all of our stuff. I didn't think to take pictures before we started making ourselves at home and unpacking.


Even though the condo is across the street from the beach we have a great beach view.


The condo is a great size. It sleeps 5. There is a king size bed, sleeper sofa and a twin bed.


The bedroom has this painting of the condo.

I loved the keypad entry. It was great not having to worry about making sure to grab your keys when going to the beach or pool. The condo was clean and very inviting. It also has free wifi. I will definitely be keeping this condo in mind for future vacations.


  1. Beach condos are the best! They really do make for a nice vacation :) Hope you had fun!

    1. I would rather stay in a condo over a hotel anytime! We had lots of fun, thanks!

  2. AHH! The Shrimp Basket is our favorite! And I always get the Mahi Tacos!!! They are the best! So glad you got them! :)

    1. The Shrimp Basket has always been a favorite of mine too! We just got one in Tuscaloosa like 5 minutes from my apartment! I haven't eaten there yet because every time we go the wait has been over an hour.

  3. How fun! Any place that's right a cross the street from the beach is a place I want to be. Glad you had fun :)
