Don't let the worn outside fool you - inside is clean and bright, A/C kept us cook, and other tables in a covered breezeway/porch if you choose. Sampled much, as we ordered the seafood platter (loved everything but the fries underneath) and gumbo (very good,...More

I tried a bit of everything....coconut shrimp, rice and gravy, boudin balls, fries....every thing was better than expected. The location is smallish and a location that the locals use, not a location that is on the tourist path. It's located in a small corner store...More

Went here for lunch with family, mostly fried food but a decent selection. Crab balls were tasty as were the sweet potato fries and coleslaw. Seems to be a local hangout so it can get pretty busy but we went thru the line fairly quickly....More

This Galveston gem is hidden in a neighborhood near the sea wall. It offers a great po boys, fried fish and shrimp, hush puppies and fries. When we come, there is a line and a crowd. I recommend the shrimp po'boy sandwich. So good!

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.
