You can never go back. We originally found the Blow Fly Inn back in 1999, by asking the guys at the fire department where to find good seafood. Then held our breaths as we entered a shack in the Gulfport woods on the bayou. It was very quaint, cozy, friendly, good food and good times. I had a signature dish of Fried Flounder on Fettuccini Alfredo. A weird combination but very tasty. Our food came with the required Blow Fly (plastic) in the middle. The walls were covered with children's art using crayons and the medium. We watched the pelicans flying past feeding and the mullet jumping and the alligator swimming.
Katrina took all that away reshaping the bayou, wiping out the Blow Fly and all the children's art, the plastic flies are gone, but, the friendly staff still attend to you, there is a smaller higher up deck to eat on, the food is still good but the flounder did not return as did other interesting combinations. My wife had the baked / boiled flounder this time and it was a piece of fish the two of us could have shared. I had a generous portion of fried fresh gulf shrimp. This place held fond memories for us. To keep those memories intact, we will not likely return to the Blow Fly Inn. However, if YOU are seeking a nice, reasonably priced, family friendly, good only locals know about place, go there and make your own memories.
I know this review is a departure from my usual attempt to stay neutral, but I loved the old place. Continued good luck guys.
