We are here for lunch and the serving sizes are monsterous, which is never a bad thing. Most of us had their fried seafood offerings, oysters, shrimp, stuffed crab and fish. Food and service were both great. Fried oyster po boy is a definite win.

Visited with hubby. Hubby got the chicken fried chicken and totally enjoyed it. I got the stuffed avocado with tuna-salad. It was DELICIOUS! This salad is served with super-crisp iceberg, carrot,celery, tomatoes, zucchini, cantaloupe, with a HUGE serving of tuna-salad. I devoured it all! The restaurant was unusually quite when we visited. The service was for the most part good.... More

My husband wanted a steak and I was craving buffalo wings. He is hard to please but thought his steak was "better than expected". I ordered the boneless buffalo wings (chicken strips) and they were fantastic. It was a huge amount -- more than enough for a meal, even though they were on the appetizer menu. The chicken was perfectly... More

I have been going to South Padre my whole life and Blackbeard's has been around for a long time. On my last trip I decided to get dinner there. The food was average at best. The price was ridiculously high. I think this place has gone downhill unfortunately.

My boyfriend & I ate here during our stay in South Padre Island. We both enjoyed the food very much. We had the flounder. There was plenty of food on the plate & the price was good. The staff was friendly, & was informative when we asked what good Sites to see.

Nice casual atmosphere. Super waitress really attentive. Calamari was meaty and tender. Dinner salads fresh served right away. We all liked my son's cole slaw which i normally do not like but this was light in a slightly sweet ( but not overly sweet ) sauce. Massive portions!! My steak and shrimp skewers were done perfectly but I found the... More

Our group of four had lunch in the slow period a few days before Thanksgiving. Most of the diners appeared to be locals which we took as a good sign. Once our food arrived and we dug in we could see why this restaurant is a local favorite. It was great and delivered with prompt, efficient service at a reasonable... More

So many restaurants on this resort island but so few good ones. Great for tourists, but a year-round local favorite. Best burgers on the island and outrageous chicken fried steak. But plenty of other choices of seafood, steaks and more. The service is always well above average. Two thumbs up...and don't forget the onion rings. Giant Texas 1015 sweet onions... More
