The best jalapeño hush puppies I’ve ever eaten. I’m not into seafood so I had a baked potato and salad too. Great atmosphere. We had the sweetest waitress.

We visited Blackbeards for lunch per recommendation from a local. We were told this is one of the best restaurants CC has to offer and I must admit they set the bar too high. The food was average at best. The fries and hush puppies...were the best items which says a lot when I ordered a seafood platter. The price was good for the food and portion size but the taste was just not there which made for a less than enjoyable meal. Probably won’t go out of our way to visit again.More

This is a fun and quirky spot. Service is efficient, staff is friendly and attentive I had the seafood queso and OMG! Hands down the best queso on the planet! You will not be satisfied with any other after this experience

It took a while to find this restaurant (it’s a purple building across the Doubletree), but I was glad to eat lunch there. I ordered the fish basket for lunch, and got two large fried fish with fries. It was delicious. I would skip dessert....I had a slice of key lime pie that was rock hard frozen.More

We had a great dinner here. We ordered chips & queso as an appetizer, which was surprisingly flavorful for a primarily seafood place. I ordered the border chicken Monterrey, my husband got the grilled catch of the day (snapper) with Diablo sauce, and our son...had the kids hot dog. I also had a Big Red margarita that was **chef’s kiss**. Service was friendly and quick, and everything was delicious. My chicken dish was just so unique and tasty - I would order that again in a heartbeat. The menu has plenty of options - seafood or non, in various cuisines. There’s something for everyone and it was all good.More

Stopped for a carryout order of fried shrimp and they were super fresh tasting. They even included some to go sauces and I'm not sure what they were, but they were absolutely amazing with the shrimp. We didn't dine in, but the environment looked fun...and the t shirts were funny as well. Nice staff.More

We visited Blackbeard's after seeing a review on our hotel that included "the purple place across the street is yummy." Our waitress, Christina, was friendly and helpful. She made a recommendation to my daughter who is 10 yo, that the child's potion may be a...bit small and suggested a larger portion without going into a full size adult meal. She was right and making the adjustment worked well. My husband's salad was fresh and filling. My kids said the fries are awesome. My shrimp was good - a little bland but cooked well with a nice crispy batter. The jalapeno hush-puppies we're indeed yummy. The Brownie Explosion we had for dessert was delicious!! If we go back, I plan to try one of their "specialties."More

I was so excited to check this place out and drug my friends along. We were really disappointed in the drinks and the food. I ordered a burger because the pictures on the website made them look so good! It appeared to be from the...freezer and was super dry. We ordered cocktails too and they were a disaster. The dessert was actually pretty decent but that was about it. Now we did go on a Sunday evening, so maybe that’s what effected the atmosphere but we won’t be going back.More

We eat at Blackbeards at least 5 or 6 times a year. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. My personal favorites are the crab burger and the shrimp wrap.

So, the building itself and the interior are not fancy or new, in fact it looks like a bit of a hole in the wall, and it’s not exactly on the beach. I was expecting a nice deck overlooking the water or something, but no....It’s across the street from a hotel that looks like it’s been there for quite awhile, as do a lot of the buildings in Corpus. Be not deceived, however, the food and the service are wonderful! The Aloha Burger is to die for if you like tropical flavors like coconut and pineapple. It comes with coconut mayo - what?!! It’s amazing! The fries are delicious as are their fried mushrooms. They have dessert drinks! I had a coffee that I can’t pronounce, but it’s the Keoeke coffee; brandy, Kahlua, creme de cocoa, topped with whipped cream. It was yummy and didn’t break the bank! The staff were friendly and accommodating. It’s a new favorite spot in Corpus and I highly recommend it!More

We visited twice on our recent trip. The first my husband had the grilled catfish. He said it was very salty. He was allowed 2 sides so ordered thecsteamed veggies They brought his fish and said the veggies would be along soon.they were. I ordered...the grilled chicken breastbone sautéed mushrooms and Swiss cheese. The chicken was a little dry. My steamed veggies were cold. My fault though I didn't return them. Baker was good and they brought plenty of butter. Forgot to mention the seared tuna appetizer. It was so very good. Seared perfectly! Really enjoyed the singer/musician that night. Went back two days later for lunch. This time my husband asked that they not season his fish or sides if veggies. It was perfect. I had a grilled shrimp taco. Lots of shrimp too. I also has a side of veggies. Mostly green beans but very good.More

Food was good and plenty of it - try the onion rings, they're HUGE! The drinks are pretty decent, and with the pirate theme and musician photos (some signed), it's fun to look around.

We chose two of them Burger with bacon, guac and all the fixings, Baja tacos as they were a...bit slow they were able to give me one with grilled fish the other with fried shrimp. The Coconut sauce on them was very good. Atmosphere was nothing fancy but friendly staff and good vittles.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.
