Dropped in for dinner and really enjoyed the visit. It is within walking distance for people preparing to depart for a cruise at the harbor. The place is small; however they do have a few tables in the court yard to handle overflow. It's not fancy but the dining room is pristine and the servers are efficient, quick, knowledgeable and...

The food was good but it was expensive for what we got. Shrimp, french fries and cole slaw with iced tea was 31.00. I even double checked the prices

This is our absolute favorite place on the island!!!!! We take all our family, friends, and business associates here. The Only thing that would make this place better is an ocean view. Meanwhile, we visit at least once a week.

I looked at reviews of this restaurant before I visited Galveston. And they where great reviews. I was very disappointed. The food was greasy. The bathrooms was dirty. I would not recommend this place.

If you're looking for no-frills seafood, this is the place. Place your order at the counter and go back when your beeper goes off. Our group had popcorn shrimp, fish tacos, fried oysters, shrimp gumbo. Everyone was pleased. Was nice sitting out in the "courtyard" area.

Have ate at this restaurant multiple times. Whenever I am in Galveston, I always eat one or more meals here. As far as I am concerned it is the best restaurant on the Island. Love their Fish and Shrimp Taco's as well as their Shrimp Gumbo, is the best I have had on the island. Friendly staff, nice size portions.... More

Took family for dinner. We always liked the old local 39th and O. They offered a more extensive menu and had table service. We had been to this place when it was Speculose, before the hurricane and often wondered why someone else didn't put a restaurant there. Everyone liked their meal, even the children. Most of the family had the... More

The shrimp taco was good! Wished I would also tried the fish. 5pc shrimp platter was great with lots of fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. Good prices would go back.

Freshest shrimp on the island and the hush puppies are awesome. Been going there for years and never miss it every time we go to Galveston. Go early as the line gets long fast.

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.
