So much food and sooooo good! We ate our weight in Cajun seafood! Flounder delicious, 3 pound crawfish wonderful, crawfish etoufee yummy, and lots of shrimp! So good. We stop here every time we’re on vacation! Service was fantastic.

I don’t normally write a restaurant review unless the food and/or service is particularly awful and Benno’s food definitely qualifies. I was charged $20 for 2 of the worst-tasting crab cakes I have ever eaten. I am not even sure they could be called crab cakes because I could find no evidence they had ever even come near a crab, except for a couple of pieces of broken shell my teeth ran into. I have never seen anything like them. The inside was a gooey mess that consisted almost entirely of breading. The consistency inside was a lot like play dough and I could not discern even a slight crab flavor. I left them uneaten on my plate (no desire for a doggy bag). If it weren’t for the French fries and tolerable hush puppies, I would have starved. My companion ordered an oyster poor-boy and she also hated it. Unless you like paying lots of money to eat French fries, avoid this restaurant.

We were part of a large group for dinner. We ordered the seafood platter, it was ok. Had a fish, 3 oysters, 4 butterfly shrimp with cole slaw, fries & hushpuppy. But the best was the keylime pie. Tart with a light gramcracker crust but had meringue topping. Thats was a new way for me I don't care for it but this one was really good. Not a sticky sweet goo topping thst meringue usually is.
