Nice enough place- central location. Varied menu. Good fish items and crab cakes w/ excellent tartar sauce! Limited wine menu. Won’t be back— Out for 60th celebration and were totally behaving ... walking / not driving ... but still counted our drinks. Really?

When I go to this restaurant it is with a group of big eaters. They love the food and the love lots of food. I found the place dirty, busy, noisy, and the food very greasy. I would not recommend it for the fussy eater.

We like going to local places with history and Blackbeard's has it. Must mean they're doing something right. Great menu and food. Service that night was timely, but the server was a bit on the rough side.

Had lunch with friends. Everything was good. The food was plentiful, and the service was very good. Moderately priced. Enjoyed inside dining, especially all of the fish mounts. We will return.

We enjoyed our visit to Blackbeards, the service was good, we loved the atmosphere and we went back twice just so we could have the crabcakes again! Onion rings are a must and so are their ice cream drinks! We especially liked the Drunk Monkey.

I was in the mood for shrimp and onion rings. This place was perfect! Shrimp was jumbo size, and the onion rings are not greasy. It hit the spot. With a dot dot dot!
