This place is awsome its right down from Ball High school I have been going here for 20 years

The fried shrimp is awsome here and they have boudin, This is good food very reasonable. If you are in galveston stop by shrimp and stuff and get a great meal cheap.

This is a true local charm! Fried is the key word. Prices are great. We had fried crawfish and crab claws. You get slaw and fries. It is a must try because of being a neighborhood favorite. BTW . . You can get it Walk Up!

Great atmosphere and went here on a recommendation. With the gulf so close, I expected a little bit more than what was on the menu...if you enjoy fried shrimp, friend stuff it's great. But I was looking for something a little more...fresh. This isn't a bad restaurant if you want something easy and fast. Staff was great, friendly, good for... More

Get off the beaten path. This place is a "dive" and those have the best food! You do not pay for any fluff at this place, must be on your to do list.

Went to the original Shrimp & Stuff today for lunch. I had coconut shrimp lunch and my wife had fried shrimp lunch. Came with fries, slaw, and hush puppies (Japoleno), and a cold drink. As always, meal was excellent. More to eat than you would want. The coconut shrimp had a honey dipping sauce to die for. If you are... More

If you like fried fish this is the place for you. Prices are fair and the food is good. I'm from Wisconsin and this is your typical Friday night fish fry place - with more options! Seating available inside and out. I was surprised at the number of diners in this out of the way spot. Would I go back?... More

We went for a late lunch and had shrimp and fish. This was my first time and went because it was recommended by friends. I was diaappointed in the shrimp, tasted like frozen shrimp to me. Fish and coleslaw was good. I will not add it to our regular places to eat when in town

The seafood was delicious. It's not a health food restaurant. Everything is fried, but if you want authentic, fresh, yummy seafood, this is your place. The gumbo, crab balls, coconut shrimp, fried shrimp and fried oysters were really delicious, but especially go for the gumbo!

Our least favorite meal in Galveston. It seemed like fast food seafood. We ordered at the counter and picked it up at a different counter. The food was barley warm and had a greasy taste. All the food we tried was fried. We both felt the food had been setting in a pan under heat lamps.

We found this local "landmark" restaurant courtesy of a waiter at another establishment. Loved our fryed shrimp. Easy to order when you walk in. They give you a beeper so you know when your food is ready. We sat outside and it was very comfortable. The food was awesome.
