Hands down our favorite seafood restaurant in Mississippi. Every time we're down here we pay them a visit. The flounder, and jumbo shrimp are out of this world.

On a recent Sunday, I ordered the Ribeye steak at Blowfly Inn. The following Tuesday I placed the same order at an expensive steak houses in one of the local casinos. Blowfly Inn cooked my steak to perfection. It's been a long time since I have a ribeye that tasted that good. I will definitely go back. --Glen Ladnier

The roast beef po-boy was the worst one I have ever had. Most New Orleans style roast beef po-boys come with sliced roast beef. Theirs uses big chunks...at least 1 inch cubes and way too much meat.

Excellent food and wait staff! Out of the way, but worth the trip out. Will be on our 'to do' next time in the area.

I was very disappointed in the atmosphere and my meal. For the price I at least expected to get one of their signature plastic flies.

Have been eating here since 2005 when our travels brought us near Gulfport and while here for a recent Goldwing rally we brought friends to dine with us for dinner. Dined outside as weather was pleasant and Kim came to get our drinks immediately. Teresa came to take our meal orders and did a great job. Both were very friendly... More

What a disappointment! We have always enjoyed Blow Fly and were hoping the new management didn't make too many changes. The wait staff are the same wonderful ladies, the food was very different. Onion rings had too much breading, burgers ordered medium well were very well done and dry. My husband had fried catfish and said it was "tasteless". There... More

We were there for lunch on their grand reopening. The flounder was done perfectly, the shrimp PO-boy was huge and could have fed two. My catfish, red beans and rice were excellent. Nancy, our server did an excellent job meeting our needs. John, one of the owners took time to welcome us. Plus, a great view. We will be back!!!

good solid leisure food with a good view over back bay. Unpretentious. Recent change of owners but continues with very old coast tradition. Check on status of liquor license as this was in transition with change over. Not a linen table cloth place.

Thanks for visiting the Blow Fly and we appreciate your feedback. Liquor license is in place and we are now using black table cloths & candle lights on the patio in the evenings... great for date nights and viewing the incredible sunsets over the back bay. Tonight & tomorrow from 5-8pm we are providing live entertainment, a Jimmy Buffet style... More

We waited and waited for our food. The tables around us came and went. We ended up leaving hungry but they did comp our iced teas and chocolate milk. There was a definite lack of communication between staff members and also customers. I'd love to review the food, but hey... I can't review it if I never got it!
