Went for lunch on Saturday. Seating was a bit confusing because there's no hostess. It took a while for anyone to ask us what we wanted to drink even though it was maybe 3/4 full. We had the shrimp po-boy, seasoned fries (fries are not included with the entrees), chicken and sausage gumbo, and boudin balls.

The shrimp po-boy was very good, but not exactly New Orleans-style; however, it wasn't advertised as such. The gumbo had a good flavor, but again not exactly New Orleans-style; however, it wasn't advertised as such. The chicken seemed like it was processed chunks and was very dry. The boudin balls were good, but soft and didn't really have enough flavor.

The waiter we had was very friendly and worked hard. Seems like the servers all helped each other out. I thought the prices were good. Street parking can be difficult to find sometimes. This was for the downtown location.

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!

We were in the mood for seafood while poking around the historic downtown district of Galveston. When we saw a sign with an arrow that said “Shrimp and Stuff," we followed it to a courtyard with a small restaurant. The staff was super friendly from the moment we walked in.

I never really thought that there was much variation in how restaurants made fried shrimp. This place proved me wrong. The fried shrimp was THE BEST EVER. Lightly breaded, butterflied and extremely fresh. Everything else we ate was delicious as well. I would definitely return here.

I like this restaurant better than the counterpart "Shrimp & Stuff". It has better choices for healthier food: grilled. I love their combo, it is not as think as the one that Shrimp & Stuff" makes, but it is very tasty, especially the sausage version. The choices for grilled fish with stuffy (gluten free) are really good. The service is great.

After a long day of travel and settling into our hotel, this small eatery was convenient and satisfactory. We shared a fried shrimp dinner and a crawfish appetizer. In my opinion, neither were particularly outstanding. Conventional fried shrimp. Food was okay, not memorable.

Place seemed clean. Waitress pleasant. Prices too high, but typical of Galveston.
