My son wanted to go here, because he read a review that the place was the best seafood in Galveston. Food was average, price was not bad, $69 for 4 people. Service was good

The shrimp was just okay. To me, if you are going to call yourself "Shrimp & Stuff" the shrimp at least should be memorable. Maybe the other "Stuff" is good. We had shrimp and jalapeno stuffed boudin balls that were fine.

Very good, but not great, casual gulf coast seafood. Fast service. Been open a long time. I think it used to be better but still worth a visit.

Been here a couple times in our visits to Galveston, love me a good fried seafood basket. Nothing revolutionary besides a nice local seafood house that offers some good fried catch. Love their house remoulade as well. Got fried shrimp, oysters, and fires.

Close proximity and many referrals led me here. Food was delivered quickly. Presentation is a bit lacking but the food was excellent. Lots of fried food on the menu. Reasonable prices. Will return

We visited Shrimp & Stuff restaurant from a friends recommendation and walked away happy! Great atmosphere and just a local spot. Nothing fancy but the food is good. The fried shrimp didn't blow me away but was really good. Now, the fish and shrimp tacos...More

We've been regular vacationers at Galveston Island since the late 80's and this was our first time dining here. Our party of eight for dinner on a Sunday included four adults and four children. The kids were typical of hungry children, eagerly chowing down on...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.
