Pros: Great seared tuna appetizer Cons: Average food, nothing exceptional/ No sweet tea (in Texas)! Bottom Line: Would go back if I was in the area anyway.

This is a pirate themed establishment with a grill and a bar. Some of the decor and collectibles are not necessarily kid friendly. That being said read on. This restaurant offered amazing food at a reasonable price. The food was so good! The staff is...friendly and willing to help. They may look rough, but they are amazing at service! It's clean and well kept. The bartender is spot on. A great place for adults and families with older children/adolescents.More

This place was amazing! They had a very wide variety of food and pirate-themed drinks. The service was very friendly and the place was much larger than it appeared from the outside. It’s a great escape from the sun and located right next to the...beach.More

Food was good but it is not such a great dining room. It is ok just nothing special. Close to water but not view and it seemed dark in the dining room when we went, however, the food was very good and I would go...back for the food and would recommend the food too! Service was ok... nothing bad and nothing great. Price was normal for this area.More

Most of our food was overcooked and one of the oysters was Completely black inside. Was told they were out of the souvenir mugs. Walking out later, there they were. Server was nice enough though

Great atmosphere. Food was good at a good price. Staff was very friendly and one dress like Jack Sparrow. Had a large menu, but mainly shrimp.

Good food for the money. Couldn’t eat everything on my plate. We had calamari, shrimp, oysters, fish, chicken. Service was excellent! Would definitely go back.

Kinda dark and old, but now after reading the previous review it makes sense, Blackbeard is supposed to be haunted. My fried shrimp were delicious but my husband’s grilled shrimp had no flavor. The atmosphere in the building was upbeat, it could have been a...little cleaner. There was a sign at the register that said “mask not required but strongly recommended” This was right after the CDC change it’s guidelines. Overall I give it a thumbs up !!More

We ate here while on a mini vacation at the end of April 2021. We had Fish and Chips and Popcorn Shrimp and Chips. Both were really good. People were spread out and the waitstaff wore masks. It has a fun atmosphere and apparently it's...haunted as you can take a ghost tour! The only exception was the VERY loud table behind us throwing F bombs with every other word. Our sweet waitress apologized for the noise. Despite that, I would definitely eat here again.More

Yes they do. Just tell them it's your Birthday. They will ask to see your drivers license. It's only a certain amount, I don't remember the exact amount.
