Great Place to Eat

This is the first restaurant that I went to on my first visit to South Padre Island over 30 years ago. The food was great then and it still is. It is a good place for families to eat. The staff are courteous and the service is fast.

A popular spot on the Island and for good reason. Lots of parking, really good service and seafood done right. Try the calamari.

We had a large group of folks and brought our catch in for them to cook for us. We did a third of grilled,blackens and deep fried. The blackened was everyone's favorite however all were excellent. We got excellent service when needed but allowed to linger and visit with friends and family. Another must stop when on the island.

Delicious meals and choices and since I love the gulf shrimp (usually jumbo) I look forward to the fresh and large shrimp so that is what I enjoy the most, but other nice choices are available for a change of pace. Comfortable surroundings to relax in and casual.

Stopped in with a small group. we were seated right away. The service was friendly, atmosphere was nice. Good food. It was a Sunday evening and they were not real busy. I would recommend you stop in and try Blackbeard's.

We stopped by for lunch the other day. Just ate at the bar and had a burger and sandwich. Service was great and the beer special was good with our food. Pleasant atmosphere and good service. Will go back for the happy hour soon.
