My family of 5 waited about 15 minutes so a table since it was still crowded. But we didn't really mind since it was spring break and most restaurants were crowded anyway. Parking was easy to find and free also, which was great. When we were sat, our drinks came out pretty fast, but our two appetizers took a while... More

We were beyond hungry and tired when we arrived. Avoiding the wait my husband went in and ordered 3 shrimp baskets to go. We ate outside. The tea wasn't very good and my granddaughter found one of her shrimp had not been properly cleaned. I was too hungry so I ate mine without ever giving a glance at what I... More

We ate here with a group of six over spring break. The place is loud and crowded, and we had a surly, crabby waitress. Everyone enjoyed their food, including fried shrimp, local seafood, etc. They have a captive audience, with several hotels nearby, so the place gets filled up quickly.

Let me begin that we the teacher's wanted to give our students a good Corpus Cristi experience. They all wanted to go to Whataburger and we wanted them to eat in a restaurant that we do not have in Midland, TX. So we called ahead to let them know we were coming. Well, they don't take reservations. So we showed... More

We stopped at Blackbeards for lunch following our trip to the Lexington. It was early so no crowd which was nice. Once you get in the door you are looking straight into the kitchen with lots of stuff surrounding you. T-shirts and other souvenirs are obviously available at the register. We were seated quickly and the waitress, Ashley, was very... More

The building doesn't look like much but they had some of the best shrimp I have ever ate. I ordered the shrimp sampler off the appetizer menu. It had four types of shrimp and they were all amazing.

After leaving the Lexington, we walked to this gem. OMG! From the salad to the shrimp, and finally the pie, this is a don't miss. Also, close to beach access and other interesting shops and sights.

We ordered a calamari for the appetizer, it was good but it only had two rings & rest was tentacles, which is fine just not what we expected. We then ordered popcorn shrimp basket, kids cheese burger, & a shrimp po'boy. Shrimp could have been cooked a little longer. But overall the service was great & food tasted good.

Great food! Fast service! Live music! Thanks to Chris, our waiter, for being extra friendly and serving the food & drinks at a quick pace! Highly recommend you stop here to eat and experience a no frills place near the beach.
