“Great shrimp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Came on a Friday night for dinner. Of course it was busy but there wasn't a wait for the two of us. As larger groups came in their wait was minimal. The shrimp was wonderful. Impressed at how the wait staff got along with one another and how quickly they could turn the tables over without making one feel rushed

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

visiting on a Friday evening we found a crowded restaurant with people waiting outside for tables. My wife and I went inside to put our name on the list, as they don't take reservations. We were seated immediately. A waitress appeared as soon as we sat down with menus and to see if we would like a beverage. Our beverages were delivered in rapid fashion. Our waitress, Kimberly, was as efficient and cordial as we've ever experienced. Considering the number of people in the restaurant, our dinner order arrived before we finished our cocktails. The meal was excellent and Kimberly was attentive at all times. The atmosphere was a bit noisy, but understandable. The evening was a bit cool, so no one was using the outdoor seating, which looked quite pleasant. All things considered, our waitress was the focal point of our visit. We will gladly return.

“Good SPI Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We always have at least one meal at Blackbeard's on our trips to South Padre. The service is usually very good. The food is good most of the time. We have always been happy with the results. Better than most on the island. Resort prices.

“Great food, good services and prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Food was great...We had steak and shrimp. Happy Hour margarita was very good. Our waiter was excellent, prompt service...will go back next time I'm in the area. A very busy place but they are big enough to handle lots of people!
