Great menu but our waitress suggested the catch of the day which was whole flounder. I had mine fried and wife had hers broiled. When we got our plates the fish covered the whole plate and both were delishous. Wife ordered a tossed salad with walnut raspberry vinegarette and wanted to take home a 55 gallon drum of it. The...

I had a very difficult decision choking what to eat, as everything on the menu was tempting. The gumbo was packed with shrimp, not lo much sausage, and the spices were perfectly balanced. The po'boy was served on a toasted roll with shredded lettuce and absolutely perfectly cooked oysters. Just a squeeze of lemon was all I needed before I... More

This is authentic Gulf seafood and was awesome. Service was great, location hidden back in a neighborhood. Well worth the hunt.

I have eaten a Blow Fly for 8 years, mainly lunch. You can't beat the selection and the service. They also offer specials everyday. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone since they offer southern style and Cajun style dishes...something for everyone.

Had they catfish and shrimp it was excellent, the catfish melted in your mouth. In the past I have had the stuffed flounder, which is my favorite.

We love the food and atmosphere at this restaurant. Went at lunch time and it was packed and had a short waiting line. Although they have lunch specials, we knew we wanted the whole fried flounder off the regular menu. It did not disappoint. Huge flounder with baked potato and salad. Everything we have ever had at the Blow Fly... More

It's so fun when a restaurant over delivers on its reputation, and that's exactly what we experienced during our visit to BFI. The warm welcome, beautiful setting on the water, and tremendous service were all just a lead up to some of the best food of our entire trip. Be sure to get the stuffed flounder and the steak smothered... More
