There are now two Shrimp&Stuffs, skip the one on the Strand downtown, it is average, common, and expensive. Go to 37th at O. It's where people who live here go. The best fried seafood in Galveston! No kidding. Facilities are low tech. No table cloths....More

Shrimp and Stuff is aptly named, because if in Galveston you must eat shrimp - it's fresh it's delicious and it's local! At Shrimp & Stuff the ambiance is welcoming, friendly and relaxed. You stand in line to order at the window and there's usually...More

THE best seafood sandwiches! Eat outside for a relaxing meal. The breakfast is just as amazing! Must have is the bloody Mary! Best I've ever had, and I don't like tomato juice!

Everything was kinda meh. Catfish was the best. Said it is fresh shrimp but tasted like regular frozen shrimp. Onion rings weren't hand battered, fries weren't fresh cut. Sorry to burst s bubble, but we know fresh never frozen seafood and this wasn't.

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.
