We've been here several times on multiple visits. Most food is very good although our shrimp was a bit too well-done for our taste. The wait is reasonable and everyone enjoys their food.

I don't call lunch for $15.99 cheap. My husband liked the shrimp. I did not. We got the 12 fried shrimp meal with fries and coleslaw. The coleslaw was not very good.

Stopped in after visiting The Children's Museum because my husband was craving seafood and we were not disappointed! Service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere is fantastic. Shrimp n Stuff will definitely be our spot in Galveston from here on out!!!

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.
