Felt like stepping back in time to a quaint neighborhood family restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful. Went with the reviews and ordered shrimp, was not disappointed. Most everything is fried, but I expected that from the reviews. Very reasonable prices with good size portions....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.
