We come at least once or twice everyone we get to Galveston. It's the best shrimp on the island. No kidding.

My food is prepared to my liking always. I love seafood and the grease is not old and stale plus it is seasoned well. When you see locals eating at a location you know it is good.

The coconut shrimp was really good! Also catfish , and plain shrimp! The hush puppies were too hot! Had jalapeño in them. Husband liked them! Coleslaw not so good! Great variety and good prices at the O street and 39 intersection. Better selection and price than the down town location!

Shrimp basket, crawfish basket, crab balls... your plate will be full. Tasty (and not fried in peanut oil, so allergies to that are not a worry). You should NOT leave here hungry! Drawback - limited parking if you are in a bigger vehicle or towing your boat!

A classic Galveston restaurant. Always busy. Always good. Their fish, shrimp, and oyster baskets are hot, crisp, and delicious. Their po boys are stuffed with the best that the island has to offer. Super relaxed and easy on the wallet. I visit this place monthly.

The shrimp and fish is like prebreaded stuff from Sam's Club. The cost of the food is not on par with quality at all. Go somewhere else for quality seafood.

The food and the price match. Both are decent. It's a casual place. Family friendly. We love to go on our way to or from the beach because it's affordable and pretty fast. My kids love their sweet potato fries, my husband loves their shrimp po'boys, and I like their fish tacos.

Shrimp & Stuff is a small "hole in the wall" type of restaurant that features good food and family atmosphere. I had a shrimp po boy (this was the first of four while I was on the Island for 10 days) and this was the best shrimp po' boy that I had. The catfish was excellent as was everything else.

The catfish was amazing!!! Everything else, from the hush puppies, fried oysters, fried talapia and even the French fries was over cooked.

This is a very casual restaurant where you order at the counter, take your electronic buzzer to a table, and pick up your food when you get buzzed. Wide selection of fish and po-boys, all at very low prices. Has inside and outside seating.

Description
Shrimp 'N Stuff Restaurant opened in 1976 and quickly became known as "the place where the locals love to eat." In these past 38 years we have had many guests visiting our fine city from across the U.S. who tell us they wished they had found Shrimp 'N Stuff the first day they arrived and assured us they will be back several times before they leave Galveston.
