I was sadly disappointed by Benny. I am a frequent visitor to this area of the coast and the times I came to eat here, there was a long wait so I skipped it. Now I know I wasn't missing much. The food flavorless, sorry....More

Family-owned and run, Captain Benny's serves the best fried shrimp I have ever tasted. Hand-breaded right when ordered, they are crispy, savory perfection! Order them in a basket or a la carte with a Nancy's Salad--chopped cabbage, fresh boiled shrimp, a little minced jalepeno and...More

Came in about 15 minutes before closing and by that time they were out of oysters as well hamburger meat for our non-seafood eater. The Seafood Platter goes for $25 and to their credit, is a generous portion.

Hubby had gumbo and crab cake. Gumbo average, crabcake was greasy, no crab to be found and limp. I had shrimp basket and those prebreaded frozen shrimp were awful. Pricey for bad food. And the waitress was strange.

Went here for dinner. Place wasn't very crowded, and their menu says be patient, they are not a fast food restaurant. That is an understatement! Took a long time for food, and even worse for the check. The menu items are overpriced relative to the...More

The restaurant is only open Wednesday-Saturday starting at 5pm. It is BYOB. We brought a small ice chest with a few beers. This is a long-time, family run restaurant. Our waitress on the first visit was Britney, the owners grand-daughter. On our second visit, our...More

We make it a point to drop by this truly great seafood and BYOB restaurant when we're in town. We get there when they open for really great service and bring our beverage of choice. We'll be back!
