An inexpensive good restaurant

A great place for inexpensive but good food. This island favorite offers a variety of seafood to match everyone's budget. It is bigger than it looks thus can sit many customers.

I've eaten here too many times to count. The fish tacos are the bomb. The place gets really busy and crowded, but the real problem is the one-hole restroom.

Theres better places to eat on the island. I had the oyster poboy, and the bread was untoasted, the oysters were salty, and there were way too many tomatoes on the sandwich. The location is great, right next to the strand, but I wouldn't come here for the food.

We eat in Galveston on a regular basis and usually at the same restaurants over and over. We decided to try somewhere different this time and chose Shrimp N Stuff based on reviews. It does appear to have locals as its clientele and there is a regular flow of them. We ordered the shrimp dinner, shrimp poboy and a bowl... More

We ate here last Saturday for dinner and it was very busy. The food was good but I didn't find it to be excellent. We had some issues with them charging us incorrectly and giving us the wrong sides with our orders. They corrected the issue but I think because this restaurant was so busy it caused them to make...

Shrimp and Stuff always busy. The Stuffed Shrimp and fries were good. Don't get the chicken po boy sandwich it has two little pieces of chicken on a po boy bun. Not very tasty. Stan H.

The fried catfish was good, but most everything else was a bit over-fried. It was good, but I probably wouldn't come back.
