We stopped here for lunch on our way back home from our beach vacation. This is our second visit. It was after 2pm on a Saturday, and it was still busy. There was a large party of about 20 people in the center of the room. We were seated at the back by the window overlooking the Bayou. Our server... More

Very nice view of Bernard Bayou and very good food. Guy Fieri high-lighted their Red Beans n Rice on one of his segments and we were not disappointed. But, beware, the sausage is hot. The fried crab claws were good but I think the crab cake was a little too wet. I prefer a bit drier, fried a little crispy.... More

Food was not impressive. We have eaten at a lot better places here in Gulfport. Waitress was not very friendly but we were forced to tip like we had wonderful service. Glasses remained unfilled for most of the meal. Two of us had slaw with our meal which did not arrive until half way through the meal. Between the members... More

Super Fantastic Restaurant. My wife and I have been eating here 15+ years, our favorite repeat restaurant. NEVER had a bad meal. Staff is very friendly as are all the locals. Menu is diverse and covers full range of foods, specialties are seafood and barbeque. Specials added to menu at 5:30 Friday and Saturday evening are always fantastic. Do not... More

A great find tucked away from the main path. The red beans and rice are worth writing home about. The onion rings almost melt in your mouth. The she crab soup is awesome too. Finish it all off with some homemade banana pudding. The service was very personable and friendly. The view of the lake is gorgeous. The fish are... More

Came here from Wisconsin on a road trip of the south. Heard about the Blow-Fly on DDD, naturally. We weren't disappointed in what Guy said about this place. I had fried shrimp and oysters and my wife had shrimp & grits. Probably the best fried shrimp I ever tasted. Everything was of course fresh as can be and had just... More

Have eaten at the original before Hurricane Katrina and the rebuilt one afterwards. This time was also as good as the others. We had fried green tomatoes (outstanding), shrimp and grits (yummy), steak, cheesesteak sandwich, and salads.....Service was good and our party of six was well pleased.

My 1st time here and the service was good, the view is nice, and the food was delicious. I had the stuffed flounder and it was wonderful and way more food than I can eat. My husband had the crawfish étouffée and it was spectacular. It was so good that we both ordered some to take back for dinner tonight.... More

The food here is wonderful! I had seafood pasta. My mom had the salmon daily special and my niece had red beans and rice. The red beans and rice had some wonderful sausage in there, too. They dropped our tray of food and 3 different staff members came over and apologized. Everyone who works there is so nice.

Our family of four enjoyed our dinner! Affordable, friendly staff, great service. We walked in and were seated immediately. Will be back if I'm ever in Biloxi again!!
