A regular seafood spot

The location is a little remote for those not familiar with the area, but the new design is beautiful and spacious. While not on the beach, the blow fly is a little off the beaten path and definitely not a tourist trap. You sit above the bay and can enjoy some beautiful views both inside and out... read more

If location and view are everything then this is your place. The fried green tomato appetizer was bland and the crabmeat on top tasted like canned crab. The seafood pasta was a very large portion but was extremely bland. The hamburger was the best thing we had but at 8.99 was overpriced since it did not come with fries or... More

The food was OK. The view was wonderful. A view of the water was very soothing. The waitresses were nice and we didn't have to wait.

Nice view, lovely location. Food was mediocre to bland. While waitress was pushy and seemed to be in a rush to get our order and move on. My seafood platter while tasty was under purportioned and my oysters were under cooked. While my wife's Hamburger steak was under purportioned and lacking in flavor. All in all not worth the price.... More

My wife and I took my sister out for dinner here. She suggested this restaurant. It is one of her favorites. This was the 1st time for us. The food was excellent. The waitress was excellent and very friendly. She just started. She had a great sense of humor. The catfish, gumbo and all the other items were fantastic. The... More

Our GPS was needed for us to find this spot at night, but we were glad that we persevered to find it! It was listed as a local's favorite on Google. It is right on the bay and would offer good views during the day. The wait staff were pleasant and prompt. We had the fried shrimp and the crab... More

nice place, had the lunch (before 3 pm) plate. Nice informal place with great food and service. We had the seafood plate and had plenty of leftovers. The local crab claw sauteed was excellant. All the food actually was excellant. Had a nice view of the bayou near there.

Food was great and the only reason I gave it a 4 was because server wasted drink on my girlfriend. She did do her best to accommodate her. Will come back again though.

My wife and I decided to take a motorcycle ride to the coast for lunch and wanted a good local place to eat. After reading about the Blow fly we gave it a shot and we're very glad we did! The catfish was AWESOME and if you ask for a little extra spice its unbelievable! We sat on the deck... More
