I have seen the Blow-Fly Inn featured on TV several times in the past; since I love the unusual I have always wanted to experience it. On a recent trip to the gulf coast, I suggested a meal at the Blow-Fly. Well, I was let down, the food was average, I ordered a drink, which was not really tasty, but... More

My wife and I ate here on our date night while in Gulfport and was very pleases with it. The food was really good and the service was great. The atmosphere is really nice. They are located right on the bay, so you have a nice view.

Ate at the Blow Fly Inn while in Gulfport for our anniversary. This place does not disappoint! Very good food and service. For best value go during lunch and go for the special. A little pricy for diner food but the taste and service make up for that tenfold. Spent $32 on lunch and had plenty leftover to take back... More

Went there since it had been visited by Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Tried the crab cakes for an appetizer~they were good, but there were only 2 for $11, not worth it. I had the BBQ shrimp~VERY GOOD!!! My husband had the shrimp and grits~AMAZING!!! The portions for the entrees were good considering the prices. I would definitely eat here again... More

Back in the Swamp, Food was great, had Catfish fillet, absolutely delicious. Others had Crawfish and Red Beans and Rice. Nobody complained about anything. Reasonable priced. Nothing fancy, but very clean. We got there at 11:30AM, place was packed, had a waiting line by noon. Go there and enjoy the view, the Gators, and the service.

Worth the drive to find this restaurant. Beautiful view, staff was friendly and accommodating to my dairy allergy. Food was delicious. Our group enjoyed steak, crab cakes, and fried seafood. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Lunch was topped off with an included dessert of banana pudding that was out of this world! Prices were very reasonable.

I ate here with my family while on vacation and I'm glad we did! It's a neat location, hidden away in a residential area along the back bay so you still get that feeling of being near the water. Our waitress was Cajun, loud and hilarious...loved her! The food was very good as well. I wasn't super hungry, so I... More

The onion rings and fried green tomatoes were cooked perfect, not to soggy and not over fried. I has the pimento cheese burger, what a great twist for just a burger. They are rated one of the best burger points and I think they got it right! The fries come as an up charge, we didn't add the fries because... More
