We dined in for a birthday dinner and food was delicious and fresh! Our waiter was wonderful and very helpful with guiding us to the right meal for each of us! Highly reccommend!

I ate a seafood plate that had Catfish and Shrimp. The inside of the fish was great, but the crust or the membrane of the fish was chewy. Use to look forward on going her, but I think I’ll pass next time.

We had a pre-arranged dinner for about 30 high school kids and four chaperones. The food was very good and the staff was amazing! The portions were very generous. I definitely recommend Blackbeard’s for group dining!

We visit several times every time we visit SPI. The food and service are always good! Broiled shrimp, scallops, and mahi-mahi are excellent!
