A very laid back place with good food. The crab cakes were very good and enough for a doggy bag. The sides were okay, although the side salad seemed to be a premixed, out of the bag one. Simple desserts, but the banana pudding was sorely lacking on the cookie part that I am used to. The staff was friendly... More

I looked on Pinterest and found the Blowfly Inn and a satisfied customer blog. My sister and I decided to dine there for lunch... easy to find using GPS. It was an absolute wonderful experience from the Back Bay setting to the delicious food. We ordered the catfish and shrimp, gumbo, and oyster poboy!!! Fabulous... the banana pudding was included...

A friend said this was a good place for seafood so I tried it this past weekend. The shrimp and grits were very good and way more than I could eat. Service was outstanding.

I stopped here to eat last Sunday on my way to work. I ordered the shrimp po boy with a cup of gumbo Po boy was good but the gumbo was great. We sat out on the deck overlooking the bay. Perfect! Worth the trip

The food and service are always consistent and are the best. No matter what you order, expect it to be good. The wait staff is always pleasant and very accommodating to our needs. They make you feel welcome. The view of the water is spectacular. Who could ask for more, great food ranging from seafood to soup, salad and a... More

If staying in Gulfport you will enjoy this place. Overlooks water and family friendly. Best catfish we have had in a long time. The special was all you can eat catfish but, one platter was plenty of big, tasty fish and all I could handle. Can't miss this place!

We haven't been to Blow Fly since the new owners have taken over. Sorry we went there today! It was the worst roast beef Poboy we have EVER eaten and the gumbo was awful! The meat was big cubes instead of sliced. The bun (not the good poboy bread) was not even heated up. The gravy, what little there was,... More

We are old time customers, and loved the wonderful seafood and steaks. However times change and for years the food has not been up to the past. Today we came again to see what the new owners have done to get back to the old style. They have. The best gumbo on the MS coast.The best oyster po-boy possibly ever.... More
