My family and I waited an hour to get a table at this restaurant on Saturday night, but the food was well worth the weight.

Food was horrible, if you don't speak Spanish your service is horrible and it was way over priced. I got a salad and it was whole carrots and celery and cantaloupe? The grilled chicken was also disgusting.

We went on our last night here on SPI to this place. We were seated right away, but they were already packed by 6:00. The server got us our drinks and appetizer pretty quickly.

We ate at Blackboards not only once but twice on our vacation to South Padre Island. We had a party of 18 and the food and service was wonderful. Great seafood and great steaks and burgers.

The food was great and their prices were reasonable. The char broiled mahi mahi was so tasty, dessert included in kids menu was a plus. We were seated quickly as we elected to sit outside. This is definitely a place we would visit again.

Bland food, bland service, had to stare at full, gross bus bin throughout the meal. It wasn't disgusting but was nothing to write home about, either.

The food was average. We brought 8 people and no one commented on the food. Service was great. My husband ordered stuffed crab and crabbed stuffed shrimp. He was the only one in the party to do so and felt ill the rest of the week. My food was lukewarm but maybe they were waiting on different plates. Kinda disappointed.
