My husband & I first came to Shrimp & Stuff more than 30 yrs. ago with our children. This summer I came back to Galveston with our kids & grandsons in his memory. It's been at least 12 years since we've been to Shrimp & Stuff and they are still the best place for a shrimp po boy and boudain... More

A bit off the beach but the length of time it has been in business is testament they cook good food. If you want to get away from the usual chain restaurants here give them a try!

Love the feel of this place, love the onion rings, love the sweet potato fries. But if "Shrimp" is in your name, the shrimp should be great. And they weren't. I got 5 fried shrimp for $7.49, and they were small, heavily breaded, suspiciously the same size and same flatness. Clearly frozen and supplied by someone who doesn't appreciate fried... More

This is where the locals go for Poor Boys. Also good fried seafood. It may look crowded when you are ordering but there is another dining room on the other side of the outdoor park. Try the dinner plates or other daily specials. I tried the crab balls which seemed to have a lot of filler and little crab but... More

This restaurant is always crowded. The food must be ordered at the counter, then you can pick it up when ready. I had tacos with tilapia fish, very good and abundant. The fish tasted fresh. A previous time I had a shrimp poboy, also good. The atmosphere is very informal, and you can choose to eat inside or outside.

Family went to this little local place and we were treated very well. People in there were super nice and food was very good also. Come try it out. Line was to the door but service was quick.

This is one of those no fuss type places... don't expect excellent service but do expect fast delivery of your food and solid / dependable food!

I've been coming here since I was a little girl and it never disappoints. It's always my first stop when we get to Galveston. Best fried shrimp! Very casual atmosphere. Fried oyster po'boy is great too. Great place to get good seafood without needing a bank loan. It can get a little crowded at lunch so we avoid the noon... More
