This is a very good resturant for seafood especially the grouper sandwich when available. The wait staff are very good.

My wife enjoyed the drink selection there and the food was okay but the quality didn't match the price.

Went to eat later on a Saturday evening. Everywhere had hour plus waits and we had group of 22. They were able to accommodate us within 30 minutes. Food was good - typical seafood menu - prices a little high, but we were hungry!

Blackbeards was recommended to us from a few people inland, but I was not impressed at all. The food is simply okay. There are large portions for the money, but with an "okay" flavor, I certainly didnt need a large portion.
