Our family had the opportunity to eat at several different places during our one week trip to South Padre Island in August. Based on those experiences I would say this restaurant is over rated on Tripadvisior. On the positive side the place is large and atmosphere family friendly. However after that several restaurants we ate at offer better food and better value. The portions at Blackbeard's were fine but the quality suspect. The salads were limp and even the fried food seemed like it had sat for a while. The cost was not abnormally high for a tourist/resort environment but you definately felt over charged given the quality. The service was a bit slow but more than that almost mechanical in tone. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you are looking for a sit down place with a "fast food" feel.

Wait not bad, but food tasted like processed (pre-pared) Sea Food. Sirloin was all grissle. If you appreciate and know what fresh qulity sea food tastes like, this is not the place. Waiter was very friendly and attentive.
