This is one of the older and best restaurants on South Padre Island. Blackbeards is one of those must try restaurants. If attending this restaurant during the weekend you should make a reservation because if not you may have to wait for a long time. I like this restaurant because it has an outdoor component which is really nice to dine at when the weather is nice. This restaurant is a little more expensive than other places on the island. The seafood, however, is better than the food provided at other competing restaurants.
