A very nice cosy restaurant..

We visited this restaurant during our trip to SP. The ambiance isn't the greatest but the food is really good. My kids are very picky eaters. But they loved the food. we would definitely come back to this place on our next visit.

Blackbeards, in my opinion, is one of the best restaurants on the island. Their hamburgers are to-die-for. Also, their Shrimp three-ways is something you don't want to miss. Service is always prompt and the servers always courteous.

I thought the food was good, and everyone at the table also had good food. They had a happy hour, and some appetizer specials between 4 and 6. Since it rained all day we went to eat early. One thing that I didn't like is they add gratuity to tables of 6 or more, which is fine but when the... More

Great tasting beef. Other 2 ladies had the fish and shrimp platter. It was huge!! Very tasty as well. I had a stuffed avocado. It... More

We went to the island with a fish craving. When we ordered the lunch specials, we were expecting more for the money. There were plenty of French fries on the platter but the shrimp were smaller and had quite a lot of coating on them. We prefer a lighter coating.

Service is very good - ambiance is good. Seafood is excellent, especially Gulf shrimp and Talapia - haven't tried other food.

The seafood and service at Blackbeard’s Restaurant is great. However other types of food is only so-so.
