We took a quick day trip to Gulfport and stopped to eat at the Blow-Fly Inn. The food was amazing and the view was calming. We had great service as well. The waitress and hostess were super patient with us amd understood our children had been in the car for 4 hours. I had the BBQ shrimp and my husbamd... More

Fried green tomatoes were wonderful Son had the seafood platter. It was a very generous plate but I'm not a fan of fried food. The Etouffee was scrumptious Great service and comfortable environment

I had this on the dining bucket list ever since Guy Fieri had it on DDD. What a disappointment!! Bla She crab bisque....it was crab wasn't it??? Or maybe they forgot that part. Seafood platter had some decent fried fish but that was it. All of it could have been better if the grease did not taste so old!! And... More

The food at the blow-fly is not elaborate or particularly refined, but it is well-executed, good solid cooking and good value for money. The onion rings were notably crispy and non-greasy and my catfish had a great texture. The pasta in my son's seafood and sausage pasta was a little on the soft side, but the rest of the dish...

Stopped by for lunch to start off our Christmas break from work. I had eaten here several years ago and it was really good. Now...not so much. We ordered fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. They were topped with a sauce (that was unappetizing) and crab meat. I am a HUGE fan of fried green tomatoes and have had them... More

The Blow Fly caters to an older crowd so they don't use a lot of salt or seasoning in their food. It seems that their customers enjoy it and as long as they are happy, who are we to judge. A group of work associates and I would go for drinks some day's after work. We had a wonderful time... More

I make it a point to go to The Blow Fly Inn in Gulfport whenever I am in the Gulf Coast (Biloxi/Gulfport) area. This time I went with a friend that I had introduced to the Blow Fly a couple of years ago. It is a great little local place on the back bayou and the wait staff is very... More

We dined at the Blow Fly on Saturday and were very disappointed in the quality of our food. It was far below our expectations and Blow-Fly previous standards. We got two different pasta dishes with seafood and it tasted like it was a frozen style meal. Service also lacked. We have eaten here before and was very satisfied with the... More
