We eat here at least twice at every visit to the island. They are always friendly and the food is always very good. The staff is very attentive.

Friendly and helpful service. Restaurant is decorated in a rustic style with a nice outdoor area. The food was excellent with a Tex-Mex flare. It was quite good as if it were homemade.

Couldn't decide on an exact meal, when I did there wasn't enough shrimp in my meal. So much noodles that I couldn't finish it. My meal got cold so fast, it wasn't worth the money I spent. Service was great, meal was a so so!

We have eaten at Blackbeard's many times over the years and dinner last night was the best yet. We started with the crab stuffed jalapeño popper which was huge and delicious. This was followed by shrimp with Mahi Mahi and shrimp with stuffed crab. Plenty of food that was excellent. Well done Blackbeard's!

Highly recommend! The only downside is that this place is freezing inside!! The food was great and the atmosphere was fun. You can share food because you get so much!

Great restaurant super staff, huge menu and huge portions, great selection and very fair prices. If you catch a fish, Blackbeards will cook and serve it to you and your party. I've been eating since the 1980s and have never been disappointed.

Blackbeard's location is good, would have been nicer if it was on the water but that is ok. The service was good but the food was really lacking everything was deep fried and wasnt all that good. I wouldn't recommend this place.
