Excellent catfish!

The shrimp are good but the catfish is even better. Was actually surprised that the shrimp were so small and a little bland but the catfish was perfect. This is a popular place so expect a wait!

We discovered Shrimp & Stuff years and years ago. I had heard Ike took it out but thankfully that wasn't true! We always work in a trip to Shrimp and Stuff even if we will only be in town a day. The prices are great and food is awesome!

Tonight I ordered 8 fried shrimp a la carte. I was very disappointed in the quality. It was definitely pre breaded and a bit doughy. There was as much dough as there was shrimp. I have eaten here many times but normally order the fried catfish which is consistently good. Therefore, it is hard to compare the shrimp to previous... More

This is a local jewel. It isn't a fancy dress-up restaurant, but generally has a line as the food is incredible and prices reasonable. You can eat inside or on the patio. They offer all kinds of seafood served quickly and with a smile. You never leave hungry! Good for kids as well as adults for just the two of... More

Ok food for the price but another cheap plastic cutlery and paper tray self-serve place. Sauce served with the coconut shrimp was thin - almost watery. The place was packed on a Saturday afternoon. I guess the big draw is the price.

Perhaps three stars is a bit unfair. The place was always busy and we ate there three times over a two week span. The food was good, but not fantastic. The atmosphere was utilitarian, verging on spartan, but we weren't there to make a night of it. I'd say there were plenty of regulars from all levels of society and... More

this is exactly the kind of place I want to eat, where the locals are. Usually means cheap and good. This is a bit inland toward downtown in a residential/commercial area. Great neighborhood corner place. Fried shrimp, oysters, and crawdads were awesome and fresh. Quick serve at the counter
