“Good fast Seafood”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Benno's on the Beach in Galveston has really quick and good seafood. We had the Gumbo and crab cakes. Both lived up to our expectations. The crab cakes were southern style and gumbo was very good. The hush puppies were very good as well. We sat outside and watch the people walk along the beach and seawall. Will go back there on our next visit to the island.

“Good food, so-so place”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We liked that it was on Seawall with a great view of the ocean from the patio. The food was delicious. The place is old and weathered. I guess that makes since being on the ocean. :)

“The crab was incredible!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

OMG! This was one of my best meals in Galveston. The weather was so beautiful and sitting outside was perfect. This is a down home place with real food. Somewhat self serve, but they will make sure you get what you need. Only serve beer and wine, the basics.

“Great food!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stayed at a nearby hotel and trien Benno's on a whim. The atmosphere is casual and the food was wonderful! It's not cheap, but for the amount and quality of food we got, we felt it was reasonable.

“Unpretentious local place with soft-shell crab”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

The tour guide (Cool Tours) recommended this restaurant, because they use local seafood and have been in business for 30 years. When I was in town, they were advertising that they had soft-shell crab, one of the few places to be serving it (even Joe's Crab Shack in Houston didn't have it on the menu). For a reasonable price, you got 3 soft shell crabs, with sides of hush puppies, slaw, and the option of fries or grilled potatoes. The potatoes were awesome - had a little kick to them. The place is right across the street from the beach, you order at the counter and they bring it to you. Very casual - plastic red-and-white checked tablecloths, paper towels on each table, etc. It was really good, no frills food and attentive service.
