Feels like a place that should be on an island. I was traveling with three others and we had been several places on our weeks vacation to the island. I had the steak and shrimp special and it was very good. My traveling companions had the catfish or flounder all you can eat special. They all said it was really... More

My friend took me here and I had a fabulous steak dinner. Just steak and baked potato, nothing crazy like fava beans with a nice Chianti! Lol

Not only was the seafood great, the stuffed Jalapenos are HUGE and the biggest onion rings I've ever seen! The Italian Calamari was light, non greasy & delicious!

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.
