This place is obviously one that locals enjoy. There is a menu board above the counter and you order your food there. You are called when your food is ready. We had the shrimp po'boy. It had 6 large shrimp which was plenty. I'm used to having popcorn shrimp on po'boys so it was a bit of a shock. Anyway,... More

"where the locals eat" with good less expensive seafood. Shrimp n. Stuff lives up to its motto quoted on its delivery trucks. Place has good reputation and has been open since 1976 despite being nowhere near the main tourist areas. It is on the corner of 39th&O in a basic residential part of Galveston. Interior is light and airy and... More

The fried shrimp basket was good and adequately priced. The shrimp appeared to be equivalent to those from the frozen good section of your super market. The chicken tenders basket with sweet potato fries was delightful. The chicken tenders were flavorful. The atmosphere is extremely casual. Shrimp meal= $13.99 Chicken strips meal=$8.59

Obviously several locals eating there. Nothing fancy, order and pick up from counter but good food. Nothing fancy. Catfish filets are very large and very good. No heavy batter, nice and light.

I have said before that we prefer local establishments over chains or big names. This place has a great reputation although it is nowhere near the seawall or the Strand shopping area. It is located in the older residential heart of Galveston in a clean but not highly polished facility. They specialize in one type of cooking- fried foods- and... More

A great place off the beaten track. If you're tired of the overpriced Seawall Eateries then this is the place to go. Excellent gumbo, fried and stuffed shrimp. Walk up and order and the food is ready in less than 10 minutes. Great selection of Po-Boys, Chicken Fried Steak, Fish and Shrimp Tacos. I'd go back anytime.

Finally got off Seawall blvd. and headed for the S&S as per a recommendation. Labor Day Sunday and we parked with no problems, around 6:30 pm. Only a short line (but it got longer with time) and plenty of seating. I had a cup of shrimp gumbo; lots of small-medium size shrimp, well seasoned, and not too much rice. It's... More

The fish taco was excellent. Loved the clams. Coconut shrimp was great. You order at the counter and pick up your food. It was efficient and fast. The prices are very good. I would go back and will recommend to everyone who comes to Galveston!

Really, really, really good food. And its not that expensive. Went to eat with the family, they were just a couple of minutes before closing, and they still gave us extraordinary service. I recomend this place, and I will definitely be back.
