I order the oyster po boy and should have ordered the shrimp po boy. It cost me $15.02 with slaw and regular frys. The shrimp po bot was only $7.95, next time I should ask any market price. It looks like a local hangout,

My husband and I stopped in to eat Wednesday night after seeing so many great reviews on Yelp! First, you are on the gulf coast, and you serve frozen seafood from a distributor? Why?? My shrimp were terrible and had a soapy taste! No lie, long john silvers has better quality and tastier shrimp!!! Sweet potato fries and Cole slaw... More

Read some of the reviews and thought it was worth a try.... wrong! Very basic food and not worth the price!!! I had the poboy combo oyster and crab balls. Oysters were old and over cooked the crab balls were mush inside! My wife had the combo platter with coconut shrimp and crab balls. That's 4 shrimp and 3 crab... More

Restaurant is clean, service is fast, and food is amazing! Po Boys are famous, but I love the stuffed jalapeños. Sorry, I didn't take a picture, I was busy eating.

The locals never suggest this place! It is a island seafood gem of a restaurant. Nothing but fried everything (shrimp, oyster, catfish po'boys or plate) fries or hushpuppies. Nautical/shabby chic decor. Lots of seating in crowded dining room, small but cute covered patio garden seating too. Limited parking; mostly locals, but worth it!

This was my second trip to shrimp and stuff. My last visit was about a year ago. This visit was much better. The food was good the portions were also good. I will say the food coming from the kitchen is slow. When they are not that busy. I will say this visit it was not that busy as there... More

Description
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.
