The place was busy. You place your order, sit down and they will buzz you when ready. My husband and I both had sandwiches, nothing spectacular , people were friendly, was clean. It did not stand out to us.

Loved the initial ambience and was expecting really fresh, local seafood. It was worse than Popeyes! The shrimp was not fresh Gulf fried shrimp. The fact that they had oysters on the menu in August indicated the oysters were not fresh. No seafood place worth...More

Shrimp were not very big but what they lacked in size was more than made up for in flavor. This is a local neighborhood place off the beaten path. My wife had the Crab Balls which were excellent. Jalapeño hush puppies were also excellent. Wanted...More

Great food and friendly, fast service! We got stuffed shrimp (both fried and broiled) and we all loved them! Very tasty! And the restaurant is cute too!

The shrimp was great and their cocktail sauce will make you want to wat it with a spoon! The hush puppies are disappointing, but this Galveston standard restaurant is always worth the visit.

Shrimp & Stuff has the best fish tacos I've tasted outside of Mexico. I love to stop by their food truck in Jamaica Beach when they are open in the summer. They never disappoint.

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.
