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.

After living on the Island for over 10 years we became very familiar with Blackbeard's! It is a must for us to stop in and eat every time we are in for a visit. The seafood is amazing and the service is spot on! We have always had a great experience and you should definitely give them a try!

We came here on a Thursday night and were seated inside in about 15 minutes. I've been here before, years ago, and remember it being incredible. We weren't as thrilled with it this time. The food was fine, but not outstanding. With the exception of one of our fish plates (which was excellent), the rest was ok, but not great... More

Get there by 6 or prepare to wait a long time. Last time we were in S Padre, we got there at around 6:30-7 and had to wait 40 minutes to get seating. It gets very busy. This time we got there close to 6 and walked right in. The food was great, but our server was not on the... More

The food was excellent and the service was very good as well. This was the best meal of our week long trip. I guess there is a reasons it has been around for 35 years.

The service wasn't the best I've ever had, but we had over 20 people in our group. I think the waiter just didn't like taking care of that many people at once, and once a few of us began to treat him even nicer than we had been, he began to do the same for us. The food was delicious... More
