I have visited both locations and did not enjoy the downtown location. It’s finer and fancier, but the service was not as quick and the prices were higher.

I ate here while in Galveston on business. The shrimp and catfish are great! I liked the atmosphere and the local feel to the place. Skip the big chain restaurants and try a small place. This place is great.

Shrimp 'N Stuff Restaurant opened in 1976 and quickly became known as "the place where the locals love to eat."
