I must preface by saying the last couple of times we went to Blackbeard's, we were disenchanted. However, it seems to be a tradition for our family to eat there the first night we get on the island. Saturday night - June 28th at 7:15 and they seat our family of 15 in about 5 minutes. Okay, this is a first and a definite surprise! We're used to waiting about an hour for this place.
Our waitress wasn't excellent, but she wasn't bad given all the orders, and at least 3 separate tickets. She delivered all the food in a decent amount of time and all the food was much better than we had remembered. My husband & I shared the crab-shrimp-crab and a plate of cold boiled shrimp. We especially liked the crab stuffed shrimp and the stuffed crab. The salad was great, but I have had the watered down version mentioned before. My son had a the British burger and my daughter had fried shrimp, they both enjoyed. My other son had Fettucine Alfredo and didn't care for it. I tried it and it wasn't that good - stick to something else. We also had a bottle of wine and the bill was under $70 so that was pretty good based on all the other places I ate at down there.
Because my husband couldn't get enough of the stuffed shrimp, we went back on Monday for lunch. They had the fried shrimp basket for $5.99. We ate for around $50 this time and took food back to the condo for the next day. We even shared meals! So, they give you A LOT of food....
