The staff are friendly and helpfull with ordering from their extensive menu. Their GUMBO is out of the park!! Constantly Good food. The only thing that I could say negative is everything is fried. I will go back and eat here.

Small old building full of super fresh seafood. I've had it grilled, fried, stuffed, and made into a salad. It's all delicious. Casual Attire for sure. Nothing fancy except for the flavor.

Visited two years ago, and came back. Still excellent food. Hush puppies are a must with your meal. Friendly service and laid back place.

I walked almost a mile to try what I remembered used to be fabulous food. They didn't give me one of my sides. Measly servings. Food was OK. I'm not walking back for a side but I'm no longer impressed.

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.
