Daily specials, great seafood, fun bar area and excellent service. Beware if you order onion rings - they are HUGE! We had a half order(4)and couldn't eat them all!

Food was mediocre at best. Over priced compared to other seafood restaurants on the island. Seating is very uncomfortable. We were not impressed and will not be back..

We just ate here last night. the boys had 6 oz fillets for $18 and mama had a burger. Service was good and we left stuffed with togo boxes as well. Steak were solid a B+ to A-, which is great for that price. Service was good. We live here and have never had bad food or service at Blackbeards.

Been going here for years whenever we are at the island. We try to do on Tuesdays or Saturdays to catch their chicken fried steak special. My boys love their burgers, and we often get their fish po'boy. Onion rings are my son's favorite.

As usual, the food was... More

Blackbeards is a staple when you come to the island. It's just OK for me. It's nothing fantastic it's nothing terrible. I know that we had a Petrone silver margarita and it was one of the most terrible margaritas i've ever had in my life. It was so sour we could barely drink it. We should've returned it but we're...
