I eat here every time I am in Galveston. It is pricey and out of the many times I have eaten here only one time was not fantastic. Be sure to eat on the patio!

We have been to Benno's many times over many years. This is one of our favorite "non" chain restaurants on the island. The food is always delicious and the portions are nice. I don't have one favorite dish as they are all really good. It isn't a fancy place, so casual dress is welcomed. The staff are nice and it... More

Decided to try a new place for lunch, why not near the Sea Wall. We ordered the fish and shrimp plate, under combination plates/dinners. Fish and Shrimp Plate included cole slaw, hush puppies, and fries. The food had a kick to it, (my nose was runny) lol, but very delicious. We also tried a side order of corn on the... More

On a whim, we had lunch at this restaurant on the Seawall in Galveston. It's the best Cajun food I've had outside of NOLA. We split a po'boy, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and jambalaya. One too many sides but we managed to choke everything down! And the sides were "cups", not bowls. Fantastic food. Would recommend without hesitation.

LOVE their food! Got Cajun style oysters. They are spicy but so good. I look forward to coming to Galveston just to eat here. The hush puppies are the best on the island.

You know you're close to the Louisiana state border when you find authentic Cajun food like this. Great food, relaxed atmosphere, and a friendly staff. We will definitely return!

I can't even remember how long I've been coming here with the family but it was my Mom's favorite place and she passed in '97. And we STILL come here once or twice yearly! The food is fabulous, the atmosphere is totally fun, you can't go wrong here!

I had the blackened shrimp and fish. It was so spicy I thought I was eating over seasoned crawfish. The beer was hot and only minimal choices. NO Michelob Ultra or Coors Light. It was a little expensive for what you get. 2 adult entrees, 1 child plate and 2 adult beverage and a soda was 74.00 plus change. Would... More
