So how do you find a great non-touristy restaurant that serves good seafood on Galveston Island? You ask a couple of people that work in the shops at the strand! At least that's what my girlfriend and I did. We were told that for good...More

Clean restaurant and good friendly service. We had the fried shrimp dinner. Shrimp was breaded frozen kind that you can get in a box in the freezer section of the grocery store. Very disappointed for being on the gulf.

This restaurant is some of the best food and service you could ask for. I had Brunch on Sunday and it was delicious. For the type of food you get, it is at a low price. Try this place and you will not be disappointed.

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.
