Found this place on our last night and wish we had found it earlier. Fish was fresh and so much better than Willy Gs. This is how fish should be prepared. And much less wait time. Lovely staff and a homey feel.

I got an order of three shrimp tacos, one friend, one grilled, and one blackened. They were absolutely delicious. The staff was kind and friendly

Ordered takeout today. 2 crab patty dinners and 2 chicken fried stake dinners. I didn’t think it was possible to screw up chicken fried steak but they did. The steaks were so tuff my daughter and granddaughter could chew the meat. However, my daughter said...with enough salt the meat tasted a little better. The meat appeared to be cheap round steak that the grocery store ran threw a tenderizing machine to make it sellable. I wouldn’t buy this crap from the meat counter at Kroger and would never expect a, so called, reputable restaurant to disguise it as chicken fried steak. As for the crab patty; My wife said it was “ok” but she was the one that ordered the food and probably felt bad about bringing it home. I had to coat mine with tarter sauce and ketchup to make it eatable and still wouldn’t eat it all. This is the second time we’ve eaten food from this location. The first time was shortly after their grand opening. I thought we decided not to come back after that visit but my wife decided to give them a second chance. What a bad idea. Their original restaurant offered great fried fish and shrimp. That little effort and is hard to screw up. They should leave the other food their trying to sell to ANY OTHER RESTAURANT.More

Good food! The wait was a little long but the food was great and affordable! It’s mostly fried stuff but it’s good!

We came here because of a recommendation from someone staying at our hotel. We really enjoyed it, but everything is pretty much fried. We came for lunch, but it was such a large heavy meal that we didnt eat dinner for a very long time...after. Try the shrimp po boy.More

Do yourself a favor and skip the expensive seawall restaurants and go a few blocks north to this place. We were impressed with EVERY dish we ordered and the price was very reasonable.

We came to Galveston for a week to get away from the mountain snow and enjoy good seafood. We were speaking with a long time local gal who recommended several places to go for seafood up to her standards served by smaller local restaurants. Shrimp...and Stuff was near the top of here list and did not disappoint. The service was great and the staff friendly. We enjoyed their fresh shrimp dishes on several occasions during our stay.More

We ate on a Saturday about 6:30 pm. Good time since the restaurant was almost full when we left. We had ten in our group but everything was great. Friendly staff and great food. The shrimp no matter how prepared was fantastic! Highly recommend the...coconut shrimp or the shrimp Alfredo but everything else was great also. Probably figure between $15 to $25 per person depending on drink or appetizer. Highly recommend if you want freshly caught seafood.More

I ordered the grilled shrimp tacos and they were AMAZING! I don't usually ordered grilled but was impressed with the seasoning and the amount of shrimp on my tacos. The tacos were probably my favorite meal I ate on the trip. Service was also great.

I paid with my Visa when I was there in September, I assume that they take other cards as well.
