We had a great dinner our last night on the island to complete our weekend trip. I ate the seafood alfredo and my husband had the steak special. Both were delicous

This place is a very popular place and I found out why. The food was the best I had ever had as far as fried shrimp and crab legs go. I could not believe the flavor!

We also go to Blackbeard's whenever on South Padre, not so much because the food is the best so much as going there is a tradition for my family. A sprawling restaurant that has grown over many years it has a good family-style ambiance, funky island decor and always good service. You can't go wrong with any of their burgers,... More

We ordered the fish and shrimp. It comes with coleslaw, french fries, and hushpuppies. When the plates arrived, I knew that was our food for the day. It was piled up in a mound. The only part that was a disappointment was that I have had better hushpuppies, but overall, we were pleased. If we go again, I will try... More

They have oysters seasonally and they are fresh. They have some special stuffed pepper thing they are "famous for" I was not impressed it is more breading than anything. They have good daily specials with fish and will "cook what you catch" which is pretty cool.

We went for lunch so the prices were lower and we ordered the fish and shrimp special. It was very good but my husband mentioned liking hush puppies and she brought extra but then we were charged for them.

Our waitress was excellent, and provided quick service and took everything with laughter and was very pleasant to have as a waitress. It was her service that prompted us to eat at the restaurant three times during the weekend. The prices where average for a tourist community, but the food was a lot and plates full. Drinks where great, and... More

I was one of the originals who started going to Blackbeards when it opened and it has grown size wise but the great taste has always stayed. I do not think I have ever had a bad meal there, from their shrimp or fried fish to one of their signature hamburgers, it has. Always been tasty. You can't eat at... More

We went here for my husbands birthday, the food was great! I was told by another friend to try this place and it was so worth it! I ordered the fried catfish and it was very good! The fish was fresh and fried well, they give you a lot of food. I had to take some home! My hubby ordered... More
