Blow Fly Inn Restaurant Back On The Bayou

The orders kept coming in and so did the people with the re-opening of the Blow Fly Inn Restaurant in Gulfport. The place known for the good food with the great view re-opened on the bayou Tuesday.

It was temporarily in the Holiday Inn after the storm.  But now, it's back on the bayou and so are its loyal customers. 

"We're very fortunate, and we have a real loyal fan base.  They have all been real excited about it," says owner Scott Weinberg.

Marguerite Marquez and her family are some of the loyal fans of which Weinberg speaks. Marguerite was born in Virginia, but moved to the coast when she was eight. She says the Blow Fly has always been a family favorite.

"When we came to visit, we always came here because it's our favorite place.  We would always talk about how great it was and how nice all the people were."

For the Sprinkell Family of Gulfport, the Blow Fly was part of a family tradition.

"Before the storm, we use to come here once a week, family tradition.  Now that it's back at the original location, I think we're going to get back to the family tradition, and I'm looking forward to that," says Daniel Sprinkell.  

From the steady crowd Thursday night, it's safe to say everybody's looking forward to getting their hands on their favorite dish. 

The new restaurant can seat 90 people inside and 40 outside on the deck.  The customers who came by to check out the new place say they were impressed.

"It looks so good.  It's just awesome," says Marquez.

The owner says those are the kind of reviews he hopes to hear more of as the restaurant gets cooking again on the bayou.

    Alberto is on its way. But the calm before the storm has given boat owners and people time to both prepare and enjoy some recreational time before the Memorial Day weekend gets cut short.
