Went with friends for a seafood dinner. Casual and comfortable and not too noisy. Service and food were very very good.

Good if fried seafood is what you are looking for. I’d rate the crab cakes above average, and my husband liked his shrimp platter. Biggest surprise was that my SUPER picky daughter loved the chicken strips. Not the best beach ambiance on the sea wall.

We stopped at Bennos Cajun for late lunch on a Wed. Casual dining across from the beach Excellent fried oysters and fried gulf shrimp. Very tasty tartar and cocktail sauce. Good Cole slaw. Friendly service. Would definitely recommend and will definitely come back.

Had the Fried sampler. Everything tasted the same. Average nothing special. Good service though. Not my favorite.

We love to come to Benno’s! Lots of food and option for grilled (I am loosely gf). The Cajun spice on my tilapia was good. Wish they would have had a grilled option for fish besides tilapia but oh well. This is so much better than many other upscale seafood places.
