Looking for something a little different, we stumbled upon this place while reading review online. However, we didn't know that the place had been closed for a while and had only just reopened. The place didn't look too great when we arrived but we were determined and I'm glad we did. The restaurant is high in the air (I'm assuming... More

If you like having dinner on the bayou watching a sunset, here is your spot. The name is a bit odd, but the food is not. We were a group of 5 older adults getting together for dinner. We watched the sunset on the porch with a drink, then headed in for dinner. Most of us ordered po boy sandwiches... More

My husband and I took my Mom and Dad here for Mother's Day. They suggested it based on their wonderful experiences here. The atmosphere, sitting under the tree on the deck over the water, was lovely. The food was awesome too!

The Blow Fly Inn is a landmark on the Mississippi Gulf coast. Management changes have reared their head and no it's closed. We'll see if it rises from the ashes anew.

The Blow Fly Inn is one of our all time favorites. For this visit, the view was perfect as was the food and service. With only one exception to be noted - the hostess was rude and uninterested. The attitude was embarrassing to me. I'm a Gulfport native and grew up near the Blow Fly Inn - now I live... More
