The food was very good, much quicker than expected, service was very good and prices were much more reasonable than expected. Will eat here again. Recommend the grilled shrimp!

On the recommendation of our resort concierge, we took a short drive from the chain restaurants along the seawall and visited Shrimp & Stuff. This is a no frills fried seafood restaurant with some of the friendliest staff I have recently encountered. We arrived after...More

Googled & found this place. I'll admit, I was a bit apprehensive due to location & then the walk up counter. I could tell there were mostly locals in there, which is what I like to find when I'm traveling. We decided to stay &...More

I always strive to go where the locals go and I was not disappointed tonight. Catfish and crab balls were good and well seasoned. Rice and gravy is available but not on the menu. So good!!! Def recommend it.

Not sure what has changed but the food is not as tasty as it used to be. It was just ok. We had the fried shrimp and it just wasn’t as flavorful as before. Almost tasted like it was pre-battered. We were disappointed.

We usually stop at the Shrimp & Stuff outside of Jamaica Beach. It's great for a quick bite. They serve fried food and grilled fish tacos and the like. They have excellent gumbo and the staff is very friendly

This was the first fried shrimp of a 5 day weekend. Out of five restaurants for shrimp eating, this would rank #4. The service was great. I felt very welcomed there. They have some great murals on their property.

If you like fried seafood- your ship has come in! Plenty of Po’ Boys, and seafood dinners. All very reasonably priced (most expensive item is a Seafood Platter for $17.95.) and rushed out quickly for you. Two locations to enjoy this Galveston staple!

I absolutely love this place. Have been coming here since around 1985. Went again last weekend with my daughter. Service is always top notch, food is always 100%. Pricing is very reasonable. Don't waste your time doing the national chain restaurants. They are good, but...More

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.
