Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Mississippi: Shrimp Basket

Visit Mississippi: Shrimp Basket

We were hungry in Ocean Springs, and after Googling nearby restaurants with good ratings, we decided to eat at the Shrimp Basket.

They were serving brunch, so several of us ordered brunch items.  

Country Breakfast Bowl

The Country Breakfast Bowl was really a plate of sausage, tots, eggs, bacon, cheese, sausage gravy, and chicken (you could also choose shrimp instead of chicken).  It was a very hearty dish of my fave breakfast foods, and it was quite a generous serving!  There was plenty to share with my fam.

Catfish Basket
The Catfish Basket included breaded and lightly fried catfish, along with shrimp slaw, hushpuppies, corn fritter, and a side (pictured is fried okra).

Crab Burger in Paradise

Crab Burger in Paradise was a burger topped with a grilled crab cake.

Strawberries & Cream Waffles

Seafood Omelet

The Seafood Omelet was full of grilled shrimp, bell peppers, onions, and cheese, and topped with a crab and shrimp cream sauce.

We also ordered some Broiled Crawfish which was on the specials board.  After a few minutes, the manager came by and said they were out of crawfish because guests just couldn't get enough of them the night before.  He apologized and asked if we wanted anything else instead.  We said no, and he offered to give us a discount for the inconvenience, but we ended up with no discount, as there was an obvious lack of miscommunication between him and our server.  

Our server was very friendly, however.

Overall, the food was good, but nothing really stood out, as the dishes were ones we could find just about anywhere.  The prices were on the high side compared to similar places.
