We have eaten here several times over the years. The seafood is always fresh & tasty. It is a family run business and only open 4 days/evenings a week. I always enjoy a grilled selection & my husband chooses fried. We're both happy! Best of all, it's BYOB! They will provide the corkscrew & glasses!

We got there just before closing and even though they were willing to seat and serve us there, we opted for take out -- no point in causing them to stay just for us. We had Po-Boys. My oyster sandwich was the best I've ever had. my wife's shrimp po-boy was also incredible. Next time, we'll arrive earlier.

The food here is so good! And the staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere is such fun, with the napkins being rolls of paper towels hung on the wall!

There were only 3 tables with customers...when we visited on a Wednesday afternoon. They were all locals! We were served our 2 cokes, but then it went south! The waitress left us sitting with our menus while she made 5 visits to one table and 3 visits to another table. Last straw was...when she stood at one table and just... More

In my opinion Captain Benny's in Rockport is consistently the best seafood restaurant on the Texas coast. We've been eating there for 12 years or more. If we are staying in Port Aransas we always plan to eat there on the way or leaving. The food is consistently great, we've never been disappointed. It's family owned, most of the staff... More

Captain Benny's has the best shrimp cocktail...it's his sauce that makes the difference. Service is personal and truly makes you feel appreciated for being his guest. Pricing is comfortable.

We had the poboys and jalapeño poppers. Both were very good. A lot of shrimp on the poboy. Very pleasant staff and a pet friendly patio.

We eat here frequently and love it! Usually we each get the platter and take some home for another meal. Oysters are local and only available in season. The picture I uploaded was taken in non-oyster season. In season you can get raw oysters as well as cooked. We love the gumbo! It is a family-owned and operated BYOB establishment... More
