The view alone is wonderful. Glass windows all along the wall lets you take in the views of the lake while dining. We had the crab claws for app and it was delicious and then we had the catfish and shrimp cooked perfectly and it came with banana pudding for dessert which was delicious. Definitely will be back again and... More

The place was clean , the staff was friendly, and the view was amazing but the food was really bad! Must have hit it on a bad day because we started with the tomato with crab that everyone raved on here about....No flavor. Even tried a bite of crab by itself....No flavor. Even less impressed with our main meal!Sorry Guy,... More

After seeing a rerun of Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, this was a must visit on our weekend trip to Biloxi. A little off of the beaten path but worth the visit. Excellent food with moderate pricing.

The Blow-Fly Inn has been a fixture in Gulfport, along Bayou Barnard for many years, and in a few different locations (though close). We gladdened that this iteration was up, running smoothly, and worth the name. The Fried Green Tomatoes and the Shrimp & Grits were very good, as was the Creole Gumbo (not in the Top-10, but still good).... More

Located on the water and you wouldn't even know where it was if someone didn't tell you or you googled it, lol It's really neat. Great service. We ate outside so we could see the water. Great crabcakes, bisque and the seafood pasta was the BOMB!!!! We will go back to the place if we are ever in the area.... More

We got the friend green tomatoes and the sauce that came with it was amazing, I had a crawfish po boy and my fiance ordered the cheeseburger slider. The sweet tea was the best, I got a sugar high from drinking three glasses but I couldn't have enough.

We stopped here on our road trip for lunch, perfectly halfway between Houston and Atlanta. We'd seen it on Diners, Drive Inns, and Dives, and thought we'd check it out. Definitely impressed. The views alone are something to go for. We sat inside, but right beside a huge window over the lake. Beautiful! After lunch, we walked around the dock... More

Love scenic views, great location. I had the seafood platter and while it was good, I have had better elsewhere. The dessert was days old and very disappointing. The waitress was efficient and I thought the value for the money was average.
