We had a great experience at the Blow-Fly Inn. A little trouble finding it because the directions from this site sent us to the wrong addresss, but the restaurant itself was easy to find and see. The hostess was a little flustered when we arrived - several people were leaving as we came in, so I assume the rush was just ending, and a party of around 25 people was being seated, so it was understandable. She still got us the table we requested cleaned and seated us quickly. Waitress was great and our food came out faster then expected. Reasonable prices and the food was amazing. We had the crab cakes for a starter and they were awesome. I had the Seafood Caesar and it was piled high was tilapia, lots of big shrimp, and big lumps of crab meat. Afterwards we took the kids out on the dock and they were fascinated with the 4 foot alligator who was just chillin' out. Will definitely be returning!

Went here while on an extended family vacation. Everyone enjoyed their food. I had the shrimp po-boy. It could have used a couple more shrimp, but was good. The staff was very polite and went out of their way to accommodate our large party with 4 small children.
The kids enjoyed seeing the gators swim up after dinner.

Food and service was excellent. We had to wait for a table but it was well worth the wait. Definitely where the locals go.

We were there for lunch and the food was solid good, in an excellent location, overlooking Bernard Bayou. They have a daily special and a good size menu with many of the local and creole cuisine. All the meals were served well; enough for any hungry person. The special included dessert. I am not much of a dessert person, but can say that the banana pudding and the lemon pie were really delicious. The restaurant has a fantastic elevated view of the bayou. I recommend this place and will go back next if I am in the that part of the country again.

We had the Seafood Fra' Diablo and the Red Beans and Catfish, both plentiful and excellent. The water view was awesome and we sat on the shaded outside deck. Service was fast and very good.
