“Benno's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The food is good here but make sure you like the unusual. It's definitely not a place for diabetics or those watching their cholesterol.

“Never miss Galveston restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Every trip to Galveston, we MUST eat at Benno's. Food is consistently fabulous, portions are generous, and staff is always friendly and accommodating. Recommend -- fried shrimp, crab balls, stuffed shrimp.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food was good at a reasonable price. You can sit outside with a great view on the seawall. You order your food at the counter and they bring it to you.

“Good cajun seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stumbled on this restaurant on Seawall Boulevard looking to try some local cuisine, and we weren't disappointed. They serve mainly seafood Cajun style, although as we had never tried Cajun food before we can't attest to how authentic it is. The price is reasonable and the portions were very good, we tried the shrimps and soft-shell crabs which were fantastic! As restaurants seem to be few and far between in this part of Galveston, we would definitely recommend this place.

“Good Cajun Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We went to Benno's for dinner on an early Sunday evening in late October. Perhaps due to the cooler weather, the restaurant was not crowded. There were plenty of tables available. We ordered the gumbo and the whole fried catfish. The gumbo was a bit on the salty side for my taste. It's not bad. We liked the fried catfish a lot. The French fries that came with the fish was so-so. I believed it had been sitting out a bit too long.
