We wasn't looking for anything special just good food, you'll find it here. It was a nice enough evening to sit out on the deck overlooking the water. The staff was amazing very friendly. We're planning to go back again.

We were spending the night in Gulfport on our way west and we checked Blow-Fly Inn on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a shot. We couldn't have been happier. The gumbo is great, the catfish is great, my wife's saute'd crab claws were a little short of great but they were very good. The atmosphere is downhome and unpretentious.... More

Nothing like being treated like you are in "mom's kitchen"! The southern hospitality here is at its best, even with a 2 year old eating with us! The view of the back bay is awesome and the food is amazing. Try the crabby green tomatoes- great!

A Mississippi classic - along the back bay of Biloxi. Their fried pickles makes as good of an appetizer as I've ever had. Ribs excellent, as was their potato. Salad and onion rings were less good, but still just fine. Service was as attentive as any restaurant I've been in for a while - diligent, not bugging you every 10... More

Me and my husband eat there after reading the reviews on it. I have to say we had a great time! My husband order the shrimp Alfredo and there was almost more shrimp than pasta, most of the other restaurants we have dine at have never given a large amount like that. I had shrimp and catfish. If fish was... More

I had been looking forward to coming here after a friend raved about it. I drug my husband and his grandmother there filled with expectation and we were very let down. Nothing was outstanding or even good; we ordered a pretty good sample of everything. The crabcakes had good reviews but we thought they were only average. Our waitress forgot... More

Visiting the area again and just like last time, the food was very good. Good service from the staff even after coming in so close to closing time.

With out a doubt, one of the best seafood platters I have ever had.We were there for cruising on the coast. The blow fly was very busy and had to wait for quite a while. But the wait was worth it!!

Went here for dinner with my husband while he was here on business. I have to say that I was a little disappointed. It had been recommended to us as "the" place to eat. Everything about the place was average for us. The food, the service.... I was expecting more than we got. They are known for red beans and... More
