Wanted to go back again but was still full

This place had a great feel and was so much bigger on the inside than it looked to be. We went at the end of the night and they staff wasn't the least bit angry about us being there. The fry batter was nicely seasoned and the hush puppies still tasted good the next day for breakfast! If we... read more

I was on a personal vacation to Galveston, I stopped in to shrimp n stuff because I love shrimp especially stuffed shrimp and was blown away by the tasty stuffed shrimp platter I treated myself too. The staff treated me great like they knew me

We recently took some friends from France to Galveston and took them to our favorite restaurant, Shrimp & Stuff on 39th St. It lacks the bells and whistles of a Gaido's but the food is excellent and valued priced. I knew we had found a great place to eat from all the police, fire and other city vehicles in the... More

We came for lunch. A good sign is locals eating. Not that it is the greatest food, but it is consistent and people are comfortable. We had the fried combo...shrimp and crab balls with fries and hush puppies.. My husband loves fried...I am more of a non-fried person. But it was good. You order, then wait for your number to...

Get off the sea wall and eat here. Clean, wonderful food and great prices. We come here every time we come to the island. It just gets better. This is where the islanders eat. Perfection.

We found this place off of a cruising facebook page, and we weren't disappointed! Excellent food for an awesome price! You go in and order your food and they give you a pager. The seating in the main area was full, but there is a large room behind the main one with plenty of room.

I've eaten here before, but I don't recall the lunch specials. For 9.95, you can choose from a variety of meals that come with a soft drink. I ordered the 8 piece fried shrimp, and it was cooked to perfection. It came with 3 hush puppies, fries, and slaw. My wife ordered the 3 piece fried catfish fillet meal. The... More

I'd give it a 4 rating for value and taste. We had shrimp, oysters and crawfish, all fried that were better than average.

Comes in cardboard,plastic spoons etc. Get the idea? But the two items mentioned in the title is the important part. Catfish very large and coconut shrimp fresh and good. Not for those wanting a candle lite dinner; but very good food.
