With locations in several southern states, this family-friendly restaurant chain offers up fresh seafood with a casual, beachy atmosphere. Sit outside on the large porch overlooking the dunes and enjoy that balmy breeze while you wait for your meal. The low-slung metal roof and simple wood exterior give you a hint that everything here focuses on the seafood. Local art and some cute, fishy accents decorate the interiors and keep things fun at the Shrimp Basket.
