While our wait time was minimal. The staff is friendly, the margaritas were terrific, wish we could say the same for the food. The mahi mahi I had was over cooked, dry and the garlic on it was fried and hard. It was like eating tiny rocks. The stuffed crab was okay, not worth the price. We won't be back.

Great Great Food / Service ... such a popular spot that you better get there early ... but worth the wait if you have too. Drinks are really good too. Portions are very generous and price accommodates the taste. Must go

The food was delicious and the waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was clean and busy, but was worth the little wait. Definitely will go again when we visit SPI!!!

Blackbeard's was reasonably priced and had very good food. However, we did feel like they tried to rush us in and out.

We had the sampler type plates and had enough to take home and make fish tacos with the next day. Great flavor and service was excellent.

Seafood was flavorless. Had the Mahi Mahi, which was tough and had an awful Parmesan breading. The broiled shrimp were average. Crabbed stuffed shrimp (sounds good, right?) did NOT live up to expectations. Just overall poor food. Service was okay. Drinks were average. NOT worth the price. Find somewhere else.

I came here years ago and this was the place to eat. The memu seems to have gotten extremely limited and the food is just bland. My husband and I had totally different dishes and we were both disappointed. Maybe people go primarily for the drinks now.

A frequent stop for us is Blackbeard's on the island. We enjoy the service and the food. Great happy hour specials and great lunch and early bird meals. If you bring in your own catch they will cook it for you however you like. Very family oriented. Full bar selection available. Watch your sporting events as you dine. Cool layout... More

My fish meal was good; three fish done in different ways. My wife's fried fish meal was not to her liking. My granddaughter's shrimp were okay.
