Description: 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.

Excellent restaurant. Good food and good service. Don’t leave Galveston without trying it. Great prices too.

The place is interesting with old linoleum tile floors and ceramic tile walls. The chairs and tables are the old art deco 60s style. You stand in line to order like a fast food place. We has the fried shrimp with fries, boiled potatoes, cole slaw and gumbo between us all. There is a drink fountain to self serve also. My son said the gumbo was good. The fries and cole slaw were average and good but nothing special. The shrimp were flat and thin and mostly breading. Not bad. Glad we went. But nothing special.

This is a wonderful place!! The food is always perfect! Crab balls are tasty and full
of crab meat. We eat at this establishment every time we visit Galveston.

Wanted some good old seafood like we remember from the now gone Captain Zebb’s on Bolivar Point. We have been to Gaidos and it is now expensive and average.

We Googled Galveston Restaurants and found, “Shrimp and Stuff”, located deep in a Galveston residential neighborhood. Looked like the best we were going to do for a “local joint”.

Got there and it met our expectations. Local, no frills, long time, order at the counter and pick your place to sit. I got the Fried Shrimp and fries basket. Donna settled on the Shrimp Gumbo.

Shortly the food arrived fresh and hot. No frills and as good as you would get at a seawall restaurant at twice the price. Donna said the gumbo was just not as good as the Spring, Texas, Loose Caboose. I thought the butterflied shrimp were done well and at least fair sized.

I think we might go back if we are back in Galveston some time.
