An absolute gem of a place. It's quietly unassuming from the front, and we almost didn't go in because it looked a little quiet, but I'm so glad that we did. The food was really tasty, and there were some great dishes on the menu...More

Only a 5 minute walk from our place, we sometimes forget about this cozy place, but last night we went there with another couple (their first visit). Seated at a good inside table, we were taken care of by a friendly & knowledgeable server...always a...More

What a wonderful restaurant! Everything was awesome. The Prime Rib is Exceptional and don't even try the corn chowder! It is more addicting than Heroin!

Backfin Blue is a charming Gulfport restaurant which has a great menu - except I'm stuck on my two favorite dishes: the divine crab corn chowder and the best crab cakes I've had outside of Maryland. Not flat pucks of filler and a bit of...More

I have been a long time fan of BBC. I feel their crab cakes are the very best around-lots of crab chunks, minimal breading, bit of spicy heat and baked not fried. Not having been there for a while went back and the crab cakes...More

This is a "must" place to eat in Gulfport. Ridiculously excellent food! We had escargots for appetizer (fantastic),lump crab cakes which were loaded with crab & very little filler, macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi (very fresh & delicious). Even the homemade mashed potatoes and fresh...More

Ok first - first impression walking in was not great, which probably had more to do with my expectation. I was thinking "fine dining", but the atmosphere is more homey than that. Once we ordered however, I was completely won over. Our server was very...More

Would you like to eat in a converted home with tables where the sofas used to be? Would you like crab cakes that are almost all crab, with just enough filler to hold them together?If you would, this is the place for you.

I found the inside dining area brightly light and without charm. The outside is furnished with pvc patio chairs - so, lacking in charm as well. I had the crab cakes and they do have large chunks of backfin crab in them (which is good)...More
