This is a good, moderately priced place to get any kind of seafood you want. Very, very casual. The prices are moderate, and the portions are generous. The fried shrimp, or fried fish dinner plates are loaded up with french fries. We've been more than...More

Discovered this restaurant changed hands after Hurricane Ike. Not the service or the food it once was. It is pricey for what you are served. We found the tables not clean. There are so many better seafood restaurants on Galveston Island. Take your money and...More

Rustic old time fish fry place but the food was great and I love the ambience. Walk up an order and the food comes out nice and fast. Washed down with ice cold beer. Will be back. I hope the hurricane did not affect it

Been coming here for years. The fried shrimp, gumbo, and fried catfish are what we normally rotate or purchasef. These typically are always excellent. In winter we'll have the fried oysters.

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.
