Good place to stop for great seafood. It's a BYOB which is interesting! Family owned and operated with good food and friendly service!

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 waitress was Britney's mother. There are many family photos on the walls. I think most... 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!

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
