Blowfly. Bland. Boring. Will never eat here again. A filet-o-fish from McDonalds is more exciting than the food here. Too bad. It didn't used to suck.

Blow Fly Inn has been reopened a few months and the food is really good. If you have eaten here before or never tried the Blow Fly you should try the "new" restaurant with the old atmosphere a try. You will be glad you did.

The view is amazing but better than that is the food. We have ate here for years! Try it and see! I prefer to go before 4 pm because prices are so good. All of their lunches come with a dessert. Service is always great as well. You can sit outside or inside and have a great view of the... More

Having eaten in restaurants along the Gulf Coast, this place was a delightful find. The food was very good. Crab cakes delicious. Fried food very well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Outstanding staff. Very helpful, friendly and competent. Will return. A little out of the way, but worth going. Lovely view of Bayou Bernard.

Ate here as a family recently. The wait staff is great. They are caring, courteous, prompt, and all the other good things that can be said. Now, about the food..... Among other goodies, we ordered fried onion rings. The onion rings were soggy and were not spicy tasting. Best advice I could give Blow Fly Inn is to visit a... More

We decided to try Blow Fly based on reviews on trip advisor. With GPS it was easy to find (although not on the main strip) and well worth the effort. Four of us dined there and each had a different menu choice. Everyone was very pleased with the meal. I had a seafood pasta which was the special that night.... More

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.
