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.

“Great, out-of-the-way seafood "shack"”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My family really enjoyed Shrimp & Stuff. Great food, great value.
Counter service and not much of an atmosphere, but it is what it is. If you want white table cloths, not the place for you.
Very good seafood; much better in fact than a lot of other places I've been that are far more fancy and expensive. The shrimp, prepared in several ways, was very good, as were the hush puppies. The crab balls were less exciting, but now I know that. It's heavy on fried stuff, but again it is what it is. Enjoy it for that.

This is a neat place. Very good comfort seafood for a very reasonable price. Definitely something to go and try while in Galveston.

“Very good food for a great price.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We went to this place because of the reviews. We were looking for something not too expensive and family friendly. This clearly was the right place. Food was very good and servings plentiful. Definately NOT the place to go if you are on a diet as most things are battered and fried.

“Yum”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

My fried shrimp was very good, nice breading but not so much that it was all you tasted. Tried my first fish taco, excellent, tortilla was light and tasty. My sister's shrimp poboy was rather hard to eat, the shrimp were on top and kept falling off but she said it tasted good anyway.

“Shrimp is good”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Quaint atmosphere - nothing really to talk about you might miss it if you did not know where you were going! Get a coupon and go - you will not be disapponted in the food - we have been there several times now and it only gets better!
