Good food, but check your bill at the adjoining bar.

I have enjoyed both dining in and take out from this restaurant. The poor boys are excellent and the turnaround is pretty quick. What does seem to be an issue is the bartenders' ability to calculate the bill at the adjoining bar. You must walk outside to get into the place, and some of the... read more

Great seafood in a laid back atmosphere. Boiled seafood, poboys and gumbo are my favorites Plenty of parked and convenient location. Treat yourself.

We stopped in for lunch on our way back to Baton Rouge after a weekend of Mardi Gras parades. This was our first time here. We arrived at 2:00PM for a late lunch and they had a line of people. I thought, this is a good sign. Some of our party wanted boiled crawfish and some wanted regular seafood. I... More

My family used to really enjoy Smitty's. Not so much anymore. Smitty's is a good place for fried seafood. It is also a good place for boiled seafood. You are safe ordering any of the po-boys, especially the fried varieties. They use the recipe of good French bread and great local seafood. On the negative side, this little place is... More

Came for a late lunch. Got a ham and cheese poorboy & fries. When food came out, the fries had red pepper sprinkled on them. I told the waitress I may not be able to eat them but I would try them first. I tried them, they were too spicy for me and slightly too undercooked for me. I asked... More

Stop in every few weeks for a good shrimp poboy! Nothing fancy but good friendly service at a good price.

It's a small cafe with a local feel but the food just didn't have any wow factor I was hoping for considering all the dinning option in the area, and the building shows little pride of ownership. We had the shrimp Po-Boy, shrimp basket, and the crawfish balls as an app. I ordered the po-boy dressed, but it was still... More

This is the best seafood place to eat. We have eaten here for 10 plus years. Prices are reasonable and the service is the best, friendly kind and attentive.

Good boiled seafood... some fried seafood that's average. It is a typical New Orleans seafood joint, no view to speak of just good boiled seafood, especially during crawfish season

Wanted a Po boy and came here again and it was awesome, once again. I got a roast beef po boy dressed. I received it hot, sloppy and overstuffed with meat. Very much worth coming here for the sandwich.
