We had a great view of the Seawall from the back patio. In addition to some regular menu items, we ordered a seafood sampler so we could all get a taste of the variety of Benno's offerings, and it was all good.

Had a late lunch here and it was great. The Cajun seafood platter had so much food, my daughter and I split it. It had fish, shrimp, oysters, and Cajun potatoes and bread. She said the oysters were the best and we both enjoyed everything else too. Had a side order of hushpuppies that were good too. Nice place, patio... More

Right on the gulf, open patio dining 50 Yrd's from the water. Came here two nights back to back and tomorrow will prob be my third. Cajun at its best, soft shells to die for, bread pudding and key lime pie that are spot on, cold beer, great view and reasonable pricing. Wish they had cots in the back, I'd... More

Great food, and great folks. The wife had the crabs, corn on the cob, cajun potato's and I had the red bean and rice. They gave a great portion for the price, and we were still not able to eat it all. I will say watch your food if you sit outside. The birds will get it quick if you... More

Great Cajun seafood; but the kitchens seems always in the weeds. Last order was jambalaya and it took 45 minutes to deliver (something that just needed to be put in a bowl).

The lunch offered plenty of food. The food was "okay" (no bells and whistles). The restaurant had a great location to the beach! The serving size of food was good and I had to take some to go. I did not like the flavoring or seasoning of the fish it tasted kinda bland IMO. It was a cool spot not... More

Had the lunch special and it was pretty good. I had oysters and they were a little overdone. My husband had the shrimp and his were good. The cole slaw was not good at all. Neither of us liked it. The fries were good. The service was not good at all. Never got a water refill or any other service... More

This has been our go to place when visiting Galveston. Food was always good and we expected the service to be mediocre. We were super disappointed in both this time. We were there for lunch and ordered the special. The fries was cold as was the shrimp. The cold slaw was not refrigerated and the temperature was tepid at best.... More
