Seafood platter here is excellent. Shrimp and oysters were very good, the fish, well, it was fried fish. Great service. The place was packed and we had to wait out on the sidewalk to get in. We will be back.

We were there on a busy Sunday but our orders were taken quickly. My shrimp were delicious as was the slaw. Others got the platter- big and fresh. This place not fancy but clean, beer was cold, and great food.

This little gem is off the beaten path but it is the best bang for the buck in Galveston! Huge heaping platters of yumminess! The boudin balls are awesome but so is everything here! Buckets of beer and deep fried heaven!

Friendly staff, fun ambience, great place to eat that Poboy you inevitably crave when you come to the island. I had been looking for a good shrimp poboy in Galveston since Hill’s Pier 19 closed. (i.e. a LONG time) This was our second visit—that means...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.
