If you're looking for no-frills seafood, this is the place. Place your order at the counter and go back when your beeper goes off. Our group had popcorn shrimp, fish tacos, fried oysters, shrimp gumbo. Everyone was pleased. Was nice sitting out in the "courtyard" area.

Have ate at this restaurant multiple times. Whenever I am in Galveston, I always eat one or more meals here. As far as I am concerned it is the best restaurant on the Island. Love their Fish and Shrimp Taco's as well as their Shrimp Gumbo, is the best I have had on the island. Friendly staff, nice size portions.... More

Took family for dinner. We always liked the old local 39th and O. They offered a more extensive menu and had table service. We had been to this place when it was Speculose, before the hurricane and often wondered why someone else didn't put a restaurant there. Everyone liked their meal, even the children. Most of the family had the... More

The shrimp taco was good! Wished I would also tried the fish. 5pc shrimp platter was great with lots of fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. Good prices would go back.

Freshest shrimp on the island and the hush puppies are awesome. Been going there for years and never miss it every time we go to Galveston. Go early as the line gets long fast.

Shrimp and Stuff serve fresh seafood prepared after your order is placed at the counter! The Coconut shrimp, gumbo, salad with boiled shrimp, and many other choices entreat all family and friends! If it is pretty, sit outside in the courtyard, but guard your food; the birds tend to think it is theirs!

I read the good reviews here on Tripadvisor so this place was on our plan. Seemed like mostly fried seafood. It was good but not super good. I had the fried shrimp and crab balls. I didn't care for the crab balls. The employees were not very friendly either. You'll have to try it, maybe it was just us.

This place was recommended by our hotel...very local clientele. Order at the window, find a seat, get a pager to pick up order. Fried comfort foods. Huge portions, friendly service. Got very crowded by 6pm.

My wife and I went here the first time we came to Galveston, about 25 years ago. Except for the flat screen TV it's exactly the same. Not at all fancy, but good fried seafood at good price. I noticed a lot of locals eat there, cops too, they know where the good food is.

Good local joint, no frills, order at the counter, find a seat (we liked the breezeway in the middle), and pick up when your beeper goes off. Patient staff was helpful picking from the menu.

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.
