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.

If you are in Galveston - you HAVE to eat here. We ate at several seafood places (even high $$ places) and this was the best food we had all week! We ate here twice.

The catfish is how I remembered it. The rest was ok. Have been coming to the island for years, this was the most disappointing visit to shrimp & stuff yet. Sorry. Was not like previous visits. As I stated earlier catfish is still yummy.

I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a good informal meal in Galveston. The prices are good and its easy. I got the oyster poboy and some crab balls. It was all good. Locals love it and so should you

We hadn't gone to Shrimp and Stuff in quite some time and when friends came to visit in Galveston, decided to go again. I was quite disappointed this time. The shrimp tasted like they were pre-breaded and frozen before frying, not fresh like years ago, and was overcooked as well. My friends's meals were disappointing as well. I won't be going back.

Just ate at this local hidden gem on Sunday and almost couldn't find a place to park. Previously we ate there in late December 2013 with a coupon we clipped from a tourist magazine and enjoyed the catfish basket as well as coconut shrimp.
Had the same items this current time as well with a bowl of shrimp gumbo. All delicious. If you want the ambience of The Strand or a sea wall view of the Gulf, then this place is not for you. If you want a cheaper seafood price and don't mind sharing your seafood dining experience with happy locals, then this place is not for you. Will definitely eat there again and then stroll The Strand or go and dip our toes in the Gulf with our tummies satisfied
