AAA Inspector Notes
Named for Blackbeard's infamous ship, the restaurant is fraught with pirate memorabilia, including doubloons, muskets, swords, a ship's brig and portraits of the man himself. The setting is great fun for the entire family. Also a treasure is the food, which is prepared with seasonal vegetables, beef, chicken and pork from local farms and seafood from the local docks. Each entrée course is accompanied with a house or Caesar salad and choice of side. Although I have many favorites here, you may want to try a recipe from the 1700s called Lowcountry seafood purloo (a fennel-based seafood stew), or the beef tips au poivre in a delectable brandy sauce. Each is outstanding and well prepared, but if you see wreckfish on the fresh-catch menu, go for it—it's outstanding.
