Excellent food and service. Really nice location. The wait staff were really amazing and loved that they smiled and has such a positive attitude - you can tell that they really enjoy working here, and serving their customers. Prices are really reasonable. Highly recommended!

Shrimp and Stuff offers excellent seafood at reasonable prices. While the restaurant is not large or fancy, I enjoyed an excellent meal of fried shrimp and crab balls, which I highly recommend.

This is small restaurant downtown with decent prices. Their food is just okay. I had the gumbo which was just okay and the jalapeno rice which was bland and the hot boiled shrimp which was good. They offer the general Galveston seafood fare with some...More
