Each year for close to 15 ,,, the first stop was always Blackbeards... It is good... family tradition... crowded... menu the same.. They were very helpful with one family member who has food allergies and doubled checked on the food for them.. Nice wait staff.

On the advise of one of my husband's co-workers, we tried out this restaurant while visiting in South Padre this July. It is a very large establishment and we still had to wait about 20 min for a seat on a Thursday night. This will tell you how popular it is with locals and tourists alike. They have a great... More

Brought in our own fresh fish and had them cook it up blackened, grilled and fried. The fish was very good. Appetizers, sides and mixed drinks were not good at all. For the prices you pay I would have expected a lot better.

Our family of 4 celebrated my husband's birthday this evening. He wanted seafood and chose this restaurant which we had passed several times while here this week. Everything was fantastic!! Service was exceptional. We had the Mexican shrimp cocktail which was described as sweet & spicy but was not super spicy and very delicious. The kids had a cheeseburger basket... More

We ate at Blackbeard's twice during our visit to South Padre Island. The food and service were excellent both times we were there. On one visit we brought our own fish in and had them prepare it for us. It was delicious. Our group had the seared tuna with ginger teriyaki and soy, the crab stuffed shrimp, and the blackened...

The food was great and our server was very polite. We had the seared ahi tuna and it was so good. We shared the platter, didn't care for the stuffed shrimp but everything else was very good. Great atmosphere and cold beer!

This was the best dining experience we had in a week on SPI! Service was fast and friendly, the food came quickly and was piping hot- a rarity in polar A/C Texas summer! Fried Mahi-Mahi and top shelf margarita were amazing. The kids all loved their shrimp burgers and fish! Fun, family atmosphere with lots of conversation decorations!

Stopped here to eat and was very disappointed. We ordered the lunch specials of fried fish and shrimp, and it wasn't very fresh. The shrimp tasted old and one even tasted like it was spoiled. Also they didn't clean the shrimp properly which was disgusting. The pilaf tasted generic. The only tasty items were the French fries, hushpuppies, and a... More
