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.

When we asked locals where to eat, every single one of them said Shrimp & Stuff. Of course, we had to try it.

We went there for lunch. You order at a counter and then are given a buzzer when it is ready. There is a cute outside patio. Sit out there if you can! We went on a Wednesday at 11:30 and it was already pretty full.

I was a little disappointed when I heard everything was fried. I ordered the Fish Tacos and just peeled the batter off. They were very good tacos. Everyone in my family enjoyed what they got and would go back again.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants something local, traditional and laid back.

It had been recommended by some college students. Food was great. Decor was terrific. You order and pay and choose your table. A pager alerts you when your meal is ready.

We had heard about this place from the locals and decided to give it a try and boy are we glad we did. The inside was pretty packed so we decided to eat out in the back courtyard and was pleasantly surprised by it. The food was cooked perfect and as very good.The atmosphere was pleasant and fun. We were visiting the area for the weekend and enjoyed it so much we ate there again before leaving! Definitely recommend to friends and family!

This place is our favorite when on the island. The meals are huge and the prices are very reasonable. I had the fried tilapia and the fried shrimp....AWESOME! I also tried the fish tacos which were SO GOOD!! Everyone in my family really enjoyed their food and plans to return ASAP.
