Gulfcoast...Kid Friendly

Looking for a kid friendly place with good food for the adults. Granddaughter and team are coming for the state soccer tournament.
How is The Dock these days? What about Steve's Marina Grill or the Blow Fly Inn? Any other recommendations?

Blow Fly Inn
9415 Highway 49, Gulfport, MS 39503

  1. LuLu's is fun for kid's but often has a nightmarish wait and sometimes lackluster food and service. Cosmo's is good for the whole family and always has good food. Also, if you need pizza sometime, try Crico's in Gulf Shores off 59 - great pizza and they deliver anywhere in Gulf Shores / Orange Beach.

    1. Steve's Marina, which was in Long Beach, is now where Montana's Steakhouse
      was on Hwy 49 by airport. We like Steve's alot when it was in LB. We've tried it twice and it was awful, lots of frozen, breaded deep friend Cfood. Both times casino tour buses pulled in.....

      Blow Fly has re-opened in their old spot. it is still great - gators still coming around.

      What you might want to try is Salute on 90. Great pastas and risotto's and full bar for the adults. They are very kid-friendly too,

      Are you limited to Gulfport?

      1. What about Back Bay Seafood Restaurant @ 1458 Magnolia St., Gulfport, MS 228 - 248 - 0505. *

        Or what about Lil' Ray's @ 500A Courthouse Rd., Gulfport, MS 228 - 896 - 9601.
