Pretty good for the island! The island notoriously has not the best food so I would consider this one a win. Definitely not the best food of your life but for the island I would say one of the top 5 we have been to. Docked a star just because some of the food (Cesar salad was way covered in dressing, mashed potatoes were very cafet ... read more

Our Captain recommended Blackbeard's to prepare our catch.  It was excellent.  Service was friendly and attentive.  House margarita's are delicious. Average wait for a Friday night.

It was good enough. I had the rib eye steak, it was grilled pretty well, not sure if it was a $36 steak though. Service was outstanding!

The best fresh oysters I've ever had! Great food and exceptional service! Will always come back here!

Could be better. Food was great and as a chef i think that's important. As far as service......could be better..had to ask for straws, salt and pepper. I'm in the industry. No need to ask for salt and pepper, utensils, straws especially during a "pandemic"..... But I'm a pirate and how can you not eat at a place called blackbeards...

This is my favorite restaurant on South Padre Island. They have excellent hamburgers, the best blackened red snapper Veracruzano anywhere. I eat a lot of fried shrimp. The shrimp salad stuffed in an avocado is probably a dozen shrimp, so it's plenty big.  Don't forget the big onion rings.  
The margaritas are really good and they'

My Fave!
Blackbeards is always the best! Struggle to choose what to eat because I have about five favorites! The fried shrimp is the best, stuffed jalapeños, ribeyes, shrimp salad over the top!

The food is good but pricey.
The food is good but pricey. We came during COVID so it wasn’t crowded which is nice. The restaurant is clean.

A little pricey, but worth the splurge on vacation if you love great seafood. It was easy to place an order over the phone and pick-up without any hassle. They remembered to include all the extras-utensils, sauces, etc. which was great since we were taking back to the house. We make it a point to eat at Blackbeard’s every Summer duri ... read more

Great steaks!
We were told 45 min. but we hardly received our margarita's when we were called. Everyone had a mask and the tables were spread out so you felt comfortable taking off your mask to eat. The seafood was great but the steaks were evem better.

We love eating at Blackbeards' whenever we get a chance. This time around it wasn't such a great visit. Our waitress forgot a lot of stuff, including what we ordered. The fried oster plate that you pay an arm and a leg for- oyster were severely over cooked, entirely too salty. Our appetizers were great, onion rings are the best here.

We enjoyed our meal. Restuarant was clean and it looked like it had been remodeled since the last time I visited. The Mexican Shrimp cocktail was good, our other meals so so. Ordered fish 3 ways, lunch special "catfish and fried shrimp" and a few drinks. Will give it another try. Mercedes our server was very attentive.
