An SPI staple!
The legendary onion rings never disappoint! Fantastic shrimp. Could not finish the mahi-mahi tacos, too many but delightful. Other restaurants have come and gone. Others have deteriorated into a tourist trap dive. Blackbeard’s is still shines, still doing a great job! Attentive staff. A must...More ... read more

I had the steak and crab legs, my wife had the steak and shrimp. Both steaks were very tender and flavorful. The crab legs were very good too. We would definitely go back.

Great dinner here!  Loved the blackened mahi, veggies, rice, salad, and fish & chips. They were out of crab cakes and flounder, which was our preference. They quickly offered alternatives that were very good. Thank you!

What a surprise find for dinner.  Was unsure of what to expect per the reviews.  The restaurant was scheduled to close in one hour so expectations were low.

We were told to come here by the captain of the Danny B. Fishing boat. They cooked our catches for a very reasonable price and it was some of the best fish I've ever eaten, absolutely amazing. All you have to do is bring them your filets and they do the rest. I will definitely be back.

First time I had ever brought my own catch to be cooked, it was awesome! We had them prepared in every way and had a great time. They sang Happy Birthday to my granddaughter and she loved it. We'll definitely be back!

Atmosphere is great and waiter is outstanding however the Asian catfish is tough to eat almost like jerky , now my wife's Pollock was fantastic and hush puppy's are fantastic and shrimp is great too, but the catfish at London Broil is much better. They do give Veterans discount.
