Really wanted seafood and went here on a recommendation from another. Small place. Order at the counter. The evening we visited it seemed highly understaffed for the crowd. Not completely familiar with how things rolled with this place and it was a little overwhelming. Employees...More

Locals eat here not tourists, but tourists should. Plates are brimming with fresh gulf catch for a reasonable price. Nothing fancy just yummy. Just a couple blocks off of the seawall and a location near the strand. Our favorite place other than the “spot”.

This is our favorite fish restaurant in Galveston. They serve simple fried fish, shrimp fries and huspuppies. The gumbo is good too. The only drawback is that your options are limited to boiled shrimp if you don't like fried food.

Visited Shrimp & Stuff with a family group today. Delicious food. I had the fried shrimp lunch special. Others had gumbo and chicken free steak. All were pleased with their food. Not fancy. Old school. Lots of locals. Recommended!

We ate here on Christmas Eve and the service and food were wonderful. I had the fried shrimp platter that had a large number of shrimp along with fries, coleslaw and incredible hush puppies. I could not finish my food. My husband had the combo...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.
