Benno's is a casual beach restaurant specializing in cajun spiced seafood. Ordering is done at the counter, and as food is prepared when ordered, it can be a long wait at times due to the restaurant's popularity. We managed to arrive just before the lunch crowd so were able to quickly order and receive our food. I would suggest going to Benno's in slightly "off" times to avoid the wait. I had the cajun grilled tilapia and the large serving was well spiced and tasty. My husband opted for the cajun grilled mixed seafood plate and declared all of it excellent, especially the oysters. And, this from a man who had always said he didn't like oysters. We would definitely return to Benno's, but would plan our arrival time carefully.

Well that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. The food was ok, but rather boring for Cajun. And the wait was a just a joke, over 1.5
hours for 3 plates of food!

We waited and waited - our food never came - our order had been lost- when it finally came, the food was cold and food was substandard - crab cakes were mostly breading and salt.
