Since 1978, Blackbeards' has delighted South Padre Island guests and residents with their great sandwiches, steak burgers, famous fried seafood platters, specialty gulf shrimp and fish dishes.All of our dishes are prepared with the unique culinary influence found nowhere else but along the gulf of Mexico.
Over priced for what you get. I tried the broiled seafood sampler. The Mahi Mahi was delicious but the scallops were gritty and the shrimp slightly overcooked. Not the worst place but definitely not the best.
I TOOK MY GIRL FRIEND THERE FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY.
THEY WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP ME SURPRISE
HER. SHE AND I ENJOYED OUR TIME THERE. THEIR FOOD
WAS GOOD AND THE SURVICE WAS GOOD. I WOULD RECOMEND THESE RESTAURANT TO ANY ONE WHO WANTS TO EAT GOOD AND BE SERVED RIGHT.
We ate here while on vacation. After doing a bit of research, we were apprehensive about trying it, but we did. So glad that we did. We all loved our food. Large portions, short wait time, considering how busy they were and we were such a large party. Definitely something to try while on the island!
Why would anyone order cheese sticks and a hamburger from a seafood restaurant??? Of course it wasn't that great! (eyes rolling) We LOVED Blackbeards. We all ordered seafood OF COURSE and it was wonderful. We had cold shrimp as an appetizer and they were very fresh and tasted great. We were a family of 5 and we all were more than happy with our food. Naturally it's going to be pricey because South Padre is a major tourist destination. Everywhere is going to be pricey. We ate at other seafood restaurants on the island during our stay and Blackbeards was our favorite and the most affordable. Definitely recommended!
Chef salad was served with more shrimp than another day and scallops
been so bad next day when I return with my
husband second time and wanted him to have the same meal with me
Scallops been a bad quality and not broiled they been like
a rubber taste and undercooked
but waiter offered for me additional 6 shrimp and again these undercooked scallops
And I told him about it and asked if the same chef was working that Saturday
he answered that sometimes a different chef does differently
And I saw it myself
I didn't have another problems with them but quantity the same dish for different days were different
five shrimp ans five scallops waiter told me was not true because day before they gave me 8
shrimp and 6 scallops.
Blackbeard's is the best seafood restaurant on the island! Hands down!!! We've been to SPI four times in the last 3 years and it is always the absolute best. The shrimp are the best we have ever eaten - anywhere! The food is always prepared to perfection, the service excellent, the restaurant is immaculately clean. If the locals don't think this place is fabulous, they have just gotten used to fabulous, and need to eat in other cities to go back and appreciate what they have. We are going this weekend and cannot wait! Thank you Bud & Margaret for introducing us to this restaurant from heaven!
