Good food

Have been here before. Had to come back since we were in the area. Had the fried crab claws with remoulade sauce, crab cake with fries and Monday's red beans and rice. Red beans were good. Crab cake was good also.

This was our second trip to the Blowfly Inn. I didn't write after the first visit as the couple we traveled with were not impressed with the crab cakes the host of Diners, Dives and Drive Inns recommended. On our second trip they had fried oysters and they LOVED them, saying they were the best they could remember having. My... More

My wife and I stopped by here for lunch on our anniversary weekend trip. I had the seafood platter & she had the seafood pasta with crab cake. We also tried the she crab bisque. It was bland & thin for a bisque. Everything was average, definitely nothing to write home about. I doubt I will return.

We got the Shrimp and Grits, the hamburger and the shrimp Po Boy. All was fantastic. Service was great. The shrimp and grits were like none we've ever had. It was meaty and hearty like a gumbo with grits in the middle. You have to try them. Hamburger was fresh and handmade.

Had a great meal with family from out of town. The service was excellent, portions were generous, and the food was delicious. The Blow Fly is so "out of the way" that we forget it's here. Ask a local, they'll help you find it!

Ample, ample servings, there is a very large selection, but we decided to stay with seafood. A seafood platter with a little bit of everything, and a shrimp dinner, both were very good. Homemade hushpuppies and red beans and rice were the sides we choose, very tasty. Finish this off with homemade banana pudding, they brought to us. I would... More

Restaurant was clean. Service was good, but our tea glasses weren't refilled. We went at 9pm on Saturday and they were out of crab claws and twice baked potatoes. We ordered shrimp and oysters (fried). Both were delicious!

The service was great the food was pretty good but it was so plain Jane inside that it took a lot away from the overall experience.

Perfectly prepared seafood at average prices. My shrimp and catfish platter contained a bounty of expertly prepared goodies. The shrimp was extremely tender and coated in a very light batter with a nice crunch. The catfish (strips) were rolled in cornmeal and fried golden brown. The potato salad seemed to be mustard based (my favorite) with just the right amount... More
