Great fried shrimp and oysters at very reasonable prices. Benno's on the Beach doesn't look like much and you need to order at the cash register but the food was very good - freshly fried shrimp and oysters, good hush puppies and tasty coleslaw. The meal also came with fries which were just ok.

Good spot if you like fried seafood
Portions were large, and beer was cold
Parking was limited, but service was good

We were hungry but worried about falling into a tourist trap of expensive seafood imported from Alaska. (Advertised at another restaurant on the seawall)

We were happy we selected this place!

It took us a few minutes to figure out it was counter service. We both selected the all-you-can-eat-catfish. It was more than we could eat! We received catfish, fries, hushpuppies, corn-on-the-cob, and cornbread. (Tip: try the cornbread with the honey butter--it perfectly sets off the seafood.)

The waitstaff kept our glasses full. The food was splendid. We'll be back!

Took a day trip to the Galveston Texas Seawall and decided to try this place out as it's right across from the ocean. My husband loves Stone Crab and they actually had it on the menu! He also had the jambalaya that was stuffed with sausage and seafood that he said had really good flavor. My shrimp was very lightly breaded and not oily at all. The staff was awesome, they were extremely attentive and we lacked for nothing. Looking forward to our next visit at Benno's!
