Black Beards began in 1966 as a stand alone coffee shop serving the first pizza in Estevan. It has been attached to the hotel since 1972. We still continue its tradition of real food and good service. Our burgers, fries and gravy bring us a very loyal clientele and they appreciate our basic yet homestyle atmosphere.

Breakfast Delight

We had two breakfasts at Black Beard's during our Estevan stay and the meals were very good and served quickly; however; the fruit bowls were not fresh but frozen and unfortunately not up to what were expected.

Fries are homemade, gravy is consistently good. The rest of the food has been on the menu for the last 25 years.

The burgers and fries are the best and all homemade! Currently under renovations but can't wait for Blackbeards to reopen!

Head here quite often for breakfast, never seems to disappoint, the portions are always large, service is friendly and fast! Shredded hashbrowns are so good! Their homemade burgers and fries and gravy are also one of my favorites to order! Whatever time of day you decide to head here you will not be let down! So good!!

The yummiest fries and gravy EVER!! Fast, great service! Friendly staff! Good priced food. I highly recommend the clubhouse sandwich - can't forget a bowl of their cheesy pepper pot soup!!

We enjoyed an evening meal and had good food with large servings and very good service. Rather dark and old looking but we were happy with our meals.

I am from NL & since moving to Estevan I couldn't find homemade fries & gravy close to the taste of back home. But after visiting Black Beard's Restaurant, I was hooked. For the first while after discovering this, my husband & I was there every week, sometimes twice. We still visit there quite often. They also have great customer... More

This is good wholesome food. The burgers are small, but the home made fries and gravy make up for it. Not the fanciest place in town, but the service is great.

The service and food are always very good. I don't know of a better place to eat and enjoy the conversation. Breakfast is their specialty, but any meal is great in my opinion.

Had a couple of breakfasts while staying at the attached Day’s Inn. Food was good, servers were proficient and personable, and the atmosphere was pleasant. They kept the coffee coming, which was much appreciated on a frigid winter’s day. I'm assuming they share the kitchen with the adjacent hotel pub, which had excellent fare later in the day - hence...
