This use to be one of the best local spots. When it changed owners it became an embarrasment. Spotted immitation crab in the gumbo!! It was so obvious but the lady in the kitchen wouldn't fess up. Never been back.

This place has excellent food at a very reasonable price. The portions are very generous. The atmosphere is casual, and the staff is friendly. I loved the look of the place.

Needed some good fish fast. This is a walkup (place your order) and pick it up kind of place. Great for families. Catfish was great for me, since I'm allergic to shrimp. But the rest of the gang got shrimp and thought it was great for the price!

When we asked locals where to eat, every single one of them said Shrimp & Stuff. Of course, we had to try it. We went there for lunch. You order at a counter and then are given a buzzer when it is ready. There is a cute outside patio. Sit out there if you can! We went on a Wednesday... More

It had been recommended by some college students. Food was great. Decor was terrific. You order and pay and choose your table. A pager alerts you when your meal is ready.

Food was fresh and good. The place is small but nice. It has it's own parking. Service is fast. Prices are good. It was quite full, still we got a good place to sit. Family environment. Worth visiting it.

This place is our favorite when on the island. The meals are huge and the prices are very reasonable. I had the fried tilapia and the fried shrimp....AWESOME! I also tried the fish tacos which were SO GOOD!! Everyone in my family really enjoyed their food and plans to return ASAP.

If you are in Galveston - you HAVE to eat here. We ate at several seafood places (even high $$ places) and this was the best food we had all week! We ate here twice.

The catfish is how I remembered it. The rest was ok. Have been coming to the island for years, this was the most disappointing visit to shrimp & stuff yet. Sorry. Was not like previous visits. As I stated earlier catfish is still yummy.
