Not sure what to eat? Blackbeard's has variety and everything is BIG. I went with co-workers and we ate different things. Two had chicken fried chicken, two had steak and one has a burger. Our plates were full and that's good because we were very hungry. The onion rings were also Texas size. Seafood is available and the place is... More

Went for dinner. Menu choices were plenty & our meals were delicious. Great seafood. Service was prompt & friendly. Only negative (& its very small) was the chairs, we all agreed, were not very comfortable...but the food made up for that! I would highly recommend trying Blackbeard's & will definitely go back on our next visit to SPI.

The food here was good but honestly if you're looking for more flavor I suggest pirates landing. It's delicious!

Island Resident - mostly go for Lunch. Stuffed Tomato w/Shrimp just awesome. Catfish por-boy excellent, get the flounder but it's pricy. Onion Rings best on the Island.

I'm not sure when they opened, but I can recall back to 1975 or so and we've loved it. The menu has changed many times, but still good service and food with daily specials.

My husband picked this before we even left for our trip so maybe the expectations were too high. It was just okay. Appetizer was good just chips and queso so that's tough to mess up. Steak was fine. Shrimp was good but the cocktail sauce was not good at all it tasted off. Stuffed crab was okay not the best... More

Great restaurant. Good food with good portions. A favorite over the last 20 years. Some restaurants come and go. And some restaurants on and around the island are not that great. But Blackbeard's has always been good.

Thank Robert M
