This restaurant has pretty good seafood at reasonable prices. You must try the Mexican shrimp cocktail-truly delicious.

We ate there when we first got to SPI. The food was pretty decent but I felt a little over priced for what we were given. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi. I had to squeeze a lot of lemon just to get flavor. The seasoned vegetables was the same. The beers came out and were not super cold which... More

This place is good for someone looking to have some beers and watch some sports. As of being a restaurant, they have a lot to improve. Plates were not as tasty as their description and really disappointed everyone at the table. Dessert was the only good thing there.

My family and I had lunch at blackbeard's after arriving to the area. The website is a bit different than reality. Walking in and seeing the kitchen made me want to leave, but we stuck it out. The kids ate cheeseburgers, I had grilled shrimp taco (very small compared to other places and tasted just ok). Service was friendly. Bathrooms... More

Our large party of 11 was promptly seated and drinks we're served. I don't think anyone of us ordered the same meal so we had a... More

My husband and I arrived early enough to try their happy hour specials and were impressed with the $2 margaritas and half price appetizers. We had the fried calamari and were surprised with the huge, huge plate of calamari brought out. The calamari was cooked well--not chewy and well seasoned--and was easily an entire meal alone. We shared a plate... More

We had high expectations going to this restaurant for the first time. It was always pretty full around dinner, and the setting seemed nice. The food, however, proved to be of very poor quality. The calamari wasn't zesty or tasty: it felt overcooked and bland My French fries were tasteless: they were the worst fries I've ever had. My crab... More
