Blackbeard's was our first dinner on SPI. The Strawberry Banana daiquiri was really great. I ordered the Bourbon steak and steak fries. I have to say this was the best and most tender strip steak I have ever had. It came with a salad, grilled zucchini and a huge onion ring. Delicious. My husband had the steak and shrimp kabob and my son had the chicken parm sandwich. Both said each were equally delicious. It is a bit pricey, but the quality was worth it. The service was great as well--the waiter even had me check the 'doneness' of my steak to male sure it was to my liking. Recommend this for a lovely dinner!!

We found this restaurant to me a mixed bag of experiences.
The location is cool, the decor your typical pirate theme and it has a huge outdoor seating area that unfortunately has a view of the road.
Wandering through the attractive entrance courtyard gave us hope of a great experience.
NOTE: We were there for Lunch on a Friday.
We were seated quickly and the service staff was attentive.
We also noticed it was a favorite of the above 60 crowd this particular Friday in March. It looks like the restaurant has the capacity and the ability to handle much larger, busier and louder crowds.
The combo Oyster and Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich was excellent with the Oysters and Shrimp cooked perfectly - not overcooked as it can often be. The tarter sauce they provided was excellent and above average.
On the other hand... The special of the day - Mexican Plate, was miserable with lasting affects requiring many restroom breaks for the rest of the day.
So... all things considered, with other opportunities to dine, we will opt for another place on the next visit.

We had our final dinner on the island here with some friends. We all had our kids.
The staff worked with us to make it a good experience. Everyone was pleased.

One of the guys needs a special meal due to recent surgery and they modified a menu item to help him out. It was not too busy at that time!

This will be a regular stop in the future.

Went there for dinner. They were almost closing up (near 11 pm) but we did manage to get their specials and stuff. Tried some crab cakes and buffalo chicken wings. The crab cakes were awesome!

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
