Good food, congenial atmosphere. Every time we visit the island (on vacation), we include a trip to Blackbeards.

I came here for dinner with friends and we split the fried seafood platter and the fish 3 ways. You can't really go wrong with anything fried, it all pretty much tastes the same wherever you go.

Went here with 2 other couples. We were seated promptly. Server rushed us to order. I know she was busy but we felt pushed Food was good. Menu seemed to be different from last year. I had grilled shrimp. Slight iodine flavor . Others had no complaints. I would have given better rating had the server been more patient.

The restaurant is huge, as were the crowds, even in the off season. But that only added to the fun feel of a meal there. The decor is "ocean fun" style and the menu is quite plentiful. We split a burger and onion rings and they were really good. The stuffed pepper appetizer was also really good.

Service was good and our server was very nice. Our food was OK. I think we didn't order their specialty food. I had a burger and my husband had a chicken sandwich. After talking with some locals a few days later we should have ordered fish or seafood.
