We've been several times. Only open for dinner. They recently reopened after remodeling. BFB is an old converted house. We prefer eating on the side porch. The staff is great. We love Kelly. She's so darn cute and very accommodating. Food is delicious. Try the lump crab cakes. The real deal. Very little filler. So tasty. It's the only entree... More

We've not been here since their recent renovation. They have enclosed the porch a bit so we sat outside. They have tweaked their menu some but fortunately continued their best hits of the past including corn chowder with crab and a bit of spice as well as the best crab I have ever tasted. There is little to no mayo... More

We had dinner here the other night. Our waiter was great! We were four diners, and we all ordered the Prime Rib cooked to our special likeness. The Chef was spot on with all four palates from medium rare to medium well!! The salads were crisp and fresh and the dressings delicious. I loved the relaxed, at-home setting!

I ordered fish coated in pistachio nuts, and it was to die for. My husband had their roast beef special and he really enjoyed it.The salad, bread, and veggies were tasty, too. Service was excellent!

Been closed since Labor Day. Miss their food. Rumor has it they are re-doing menu as well as interior. Please keep the prime rib on your new menu!! It's a great place and we want to return SOON.

We live in Gulfport and Backfin Blue is hands down the best restaurant in town. From the wonderful Maryland style crab cakes to succulent prime rib, it is a must for anyone visiting to Gulfport

The place is a simple, neighborhood kind of place with fantastic food! The stuffed portobello mushroom and crab cakes are delightful. Don't expect fancy service nor a fancy place setting and tableware.

A comfortable cottage setting in the downtown waterfront district of Gulfport, Florida, 33707.(727-343-2583) Menu aims to please everyone's favorite dinner. Creative dessert options...although after dinner...you may not have room for dessert :-) . Walk off your dinner while browsing the many eclectic shops on Beach Boulevard! Welcome to Gulfport!!
