Came here for dinner to celebrate an anniversary. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Some of us had the Macadamian Nut Crushed Fresh Catch and that was amazing. Another of our group had the slow roasted prime rib and he thought it was great. It certainly looked it. The portions were generous and the prices reasonable. Definitely go back.

We haven't been in a long time because we didn't want to wait. But we got in tonight and it was as good as ever. Crab cakes and corn chowder were delicious. My sister had the salmon and enjoyed it and my daughter had pasta with shrimp and chorizo. The service was also excellent.

Stopped in for drinks since our usual restaurant was closed on Monday. Bartender was very pleasant and attentive. We decided to order dinner after she told us about the prime rib special.

The restaurant may not look like much from the outside but the food is delicious! We have been here a few times and it has always been great. This last time we went (July), we were a party of 12. We were seated out on their patio because of the size of our party. It was warm but not unbearable... More

This was a return trip to Backfin Blue, the first following remodeling. The restaurant seems to have changed for the worse. We were a party of three, arrived a little after 5pm (dinner service begins at 4:00) and were the only patrons. We asked for indoor seating, and were seated one table from french doors leading to the outside deck.... More

My wife and I recently had dinner here and I had the fish special. The portions were not only excellent tasting but enormous. Very causal place that makes you really feel at home. Highly recommend and worth the trip for sure to Gulfport.

A place with a terrific outside porch, good food and friendly people. Centrally located in the main shopping area of town, you can't miss with this place.
