my office eats there for lunch several times a month and we always enjoy it. there is no where else you can have a filet of speckled trout covered with lump crab meat and shrimp cream sauce for 10 bucks. It is really good, the staff is nice, and it has a great view

Some of the best seafood on the gulf! Very nice place to take your out of town guest. Take an appetite with you when you go, plenty of food per order.

We ate here recently and realized the best thing about this place is the view. Our waitress seemed to be inexperienced. She kept forgetting items that we wanted and needed. Five people in our party was served after a long wait, while the sixth person had to wait even longer. The table next to us, who had come in after... More

I've not eaten at the Blow Fly in 15 years but only the new taller location has changed. The Shrimp Po'Boy is still the best, the service terrific. Don't miss this unique spot.

People we met told us to visit this place and we weren't disappointed. The food was really good, generous and reasonable and the atmosphere was fun. We would recommend a GPS to find it!

The Blow Fly Inn restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and it lives up to it's reputation as a unique dining establishment.

Decent food but nothing to go out of the way for (like I did) Bar-B-Que Shrimp were pealed which I have never seen before and lacked any kick, crawfish étouffée was the same but was helped by the hot sauce. Wait staff was great and the highlight of my meal.

I was there on business, it was cold and rainy, so we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the gorgeous view. They were very accommodating for our large party even though the restaurant was very busy. I had the seafood caeser salad. It was very big with a lot of seafood on top. Portions were big and the...
