Been for lunch and again for dinner. Menu similar except for some daily lunch specials. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Seafood super fresh. Nice views over Biloxi bay. Be sure to pick up a little complimentary blow fly souvenir on your way out.

As I remember, there is a fairly long ramp that does lead up into the Blowfly as well as steps.
Do you allow dogs on the outdoor patio?
