About the Restaurant
Maybe it’s the stand-out nautical decor, from porthole windows to the beautiful seafaring pictures to the various model ships set about the dining area. Maybe it’s the relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere. Maybe it’s the seafood and steak entrees, or the fresh salads and sauces made every day.
With a history dating back nearly 40 years, when Harry and Mary Kinzey and their son and daughter-in-law first opened its doors, Blackbeard’s Inn has built a reputation for fresh food, top service, reasonable prices and a warm atmosphere.
This applies to the employees and customers. There’s a reason some employees have been working at the restaurant for more than two decades and the regulars are enthusiastic and jovial.
On top of that, Blackbeard’s proudly boasts of its raw bar of fresh shucked oyster and clams as being among the first raw bars in New Smyrna Beach. Let’s take a closer look at this staple of New Smyrna Beach. Chances are, you’re going to want to add this eatery to your list of places to eat. And you’ll even learn some pirate lingo!
