We started out at a bad time -7:00 on a Saturday night - to try to feed a party 2 adults and 5 teens. Seawall was a bad idea, bumper to bumper and no parking - hour and a half wait times. We soon gave up and decided to try a place our condo manager, Connie, had told us about.... More

Yes, everything is fried at this location. But it is delicious! I had crab balls and husband had shrimp. Not the best I've ever had, but pretty darn good. I like the fact that this place is simple not fancy and has really good food. Will return.

I'm a "Po Boy" aficionado, in my mind, and this place delivered the goods. Outstanding Oyster Po Boys! Ice cold beer and a great atmosphere. Other seafood options are also very good. If I lived in Galveston, I'd be eating here 4-5 time per week. For now I just have to settle for our annual trips to the gulf. Looking... More

I can't say enough about Shrimp & Stuff. They are the best local seafood restaurant we found in Galveston. Their coconut shrimp and crab balls are to die for! We ate there more than once during our stay it was so good. Love this place!

We ate here twice while on the Island, and the food was consistently good and filling. You order at the window and they call your number when the food is ready. I prefer battered fried shrimp to breaded, so this is not my favorite shrimp place on the Island, but it still tasted fresh and portions were ample. The catfish... More

We always go to Shrimp and stuff when we are in Galveston. We ate there last week and as usual the food was great. They have a variety of seafood and my grandkids loved their chicken.

The food was very good. I had the Crawfish tails and I loved it. We also shared an order of Shrimp Kisses which is shrimp stuffed with pepper jack cheese wrapped In bacon and they were very good. They were a little greasy but still delicious. My son tried the gumbo and he said it was good.

Great place off the beaten path to enjoy some fresh seafood! Catsfish platters are big enough to share

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.
