Corpus Christi Seafood - Blackbeard's

If I can veer off of the sports page for just a bit....

Went to Blackbeard's in Corpus Christi this evening and had a great time.  They had the best fried calamari I've ever eaten.  We also got gator bites which were wonderful.  Even the three-year olds liked the alligator.

I do not think anyone was disappointed with their entrees.  The crab cakes, blackened tilapia, and everything else was great.  We had one person who is not a fan of seafood so she got a chicken fried steak.  The verdict was that the steak was terrific. 

The kid's menu was full of choices as well.

I'm now convinced that Blackbeard's has some of the best Corpus Christi seafood.  The food, the reasonable prices, and the family friendliness (at least at 5 o'clock pm) will make this place a destination in the future.

Finally, a shout out to our waiter, Louie.  Great job Louie!  Even if you are a fan of the Astros and (shudder) the Philadelphia Eagles.

  1. Had a great time serving yall! best table i had by far all night !!! Fun time!! Good people make my night fly by! And i dont know if u got a chance to catch my eagles play last night but we won our first preseason game against the ravens and are looking like true superbowl contenders...i know it is early but they are showing promise... and i know my Stros lost again...but as u can see the dumb GM has put us in REAL rebuilding by trading our top two players so give me a few yrs and we will be in a pennant race soon as these young prospects get there feet under them!!!

  2. oo yea and it was nice meeting you "BIG TIME" and not prime time.....hahahaaa

  3. I would totally agree with you that Blackbeard's has some of the best food in Corpus Christi. We ate there last summer and the fried shrimp was some of the best I've ever had.
