I went back mainly for the Grog. And while that was as good as i remembered it to be, the food was even better than I remembered. Shrimp Sampler was incredible, nothing overcooked. Key lime pie as good as Tampa, Florida's (though it seemed frozen). Maybe it was the ambiance or the,waitstaff but I went back three times in three... More

Food quality was excellent! Unlike the place where we dined yesterday, food was brought out promptly, hot and delicious. Portions were adequate or above. My friend and I were there for lunch, around 2 pm. I had the fried catfish basket with cole slaw and potato salad. Fish was done perfectly, Potato salad was excellent. My dining partner had the...

Quiet, very good service and some delicious fish tacos. There was a band in the back but was on break while we were there. Affordable and our meals came quickly.

Staying at a local Hotel on Business, one sometimes has to roll the dice so to speak with the local pubs and or restaurants. I found blackbeards to be more then I expected satisfying multiple levels of awesomeness... they make a great steak, a variety of house specials making it affordable to every class of person searching for a great...

A very laid back, casual seafood place to enjoy. Music on week end nights. Excellent coconut shrimp and fish tacos. Just chill here and enjoy good gulf seafood. Prices moderate. Recommended as best seafood on North Beach.

My experience with this restaurant was average. The food was average and service a little slow. The staff was friendly. They have a menu with a wide variety and prices are in line with similar restaurants in the area.

There is a reason why this place gets high reviews. It is not because of its saloon/bar look and feel. Simply look at photos of dishes on TA or better order the tuna apetizer to see that someone knows what they are doing in the kitchen. Fish dinne plates are simply presented but very tasty. Good value too.

This Corpus Christi North Beach restaurant failed to impress me. The grilled tuna appetizer lacked flavor. The fish dishes were over-cooked. The fried shrimp dishes were the best that were ordered at our table, but still unremarkable. This restaurant has a "captive" clients because of the tourists at The Lexington and the aquarium. But, a ride to Water Street would... More
