Recommended by locals, this place does not disappoint! Great food, big portions, & reasonably priced. Order from the counter If you want good seafood without the tourist trap, go here. Crab Balls & Shrimp Po Boys are excellent!

Table service. Pleasant staff. Really enjoyed our shrimp Po boys. Large cheeseburger for non-fish-eaters. Moderately priced for the area.

Everything was good. We had coconut shrimp, fried shrimp, fireballs, and catfish. Everyine was nice and courteous. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars was because we didn't like the flavor of the coconut shrimp. Nice to eat away from the beach

I cannot say enough good things about Shrimp & Stuff food. This visit, my husband and I had the gumbo. I could eat this once a week or more! Their rue is just right, and the fresh seafood, mostly shrimp, is delicious.

The Seafood is delicious and at a fair price. The wait staff keeps the tea and water coming. We sat outside and ate on the patio with a very nice view.

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.
