The Cajun Seafood Combo and shrimp Pivot are quite good. The Gumbo is worth the visit on its own. Generous portions all the way around.

Hubby and I were here the weekend after thanksgiving. We did some research about the area restaurants and were on our way to another restaurant that happened to be closed for the long holiday weekend. We started driving around and decided on Benno's. The counter people and waitstaff were so friendly. We ordered a Seafood platter, and a bowl of... More

I had the gumbo. Nice. Meaty but little spice. Visited during early lunch near the holiday. We were the only ones there for 20 minutes. Attentive staff. Quick service.

This was a local recommendation. I had the shrimp with grilled potatoes made Cajun style. You order at the bar and the food is brought to your table. Good size portions. My friend wanted to give a check and was turned down...good to know. The staff is a little on the rude side so I marked this place down because... More

My husband and I ate here twice on a weekend in Galveston. The first time I had the fried shrimp and fish combo plate, which came with 2 huge fish filets, 4 (I think) shrimp, a cup of coleslaw, hushpuppies and fries. I could not eat all of it. The fish and shrimp were battered with a nice peppered batter.... More

You can only get Cajun on the gulf. This is great Cajun outdoors the way it was intended. Casual atmosphere and steps to the beach.

We went here for dinner on a recommendation that this is where all the locals go. Well, I should have walked out quickly after walking in but for some reason didn't. We started to sit down, and the lady at the counter yelled to us that we "had to order up here". So we went up to look at the... More

This is my choice of Cajun seafood restaurant in Galveston. I've been a customer since 1990's. Food is Same has been changed for years. Staff is friendly and helpful. It gets very busy on weekends. Gumbo seafood is real good and poorboy sandwich too. You can seat out side and have your food or drink too. Prices is about 10-20$.... More
