I was raised in New Orleans and moved many years ago. Whenever I come back to visit family I always have to stop by to get my fix for awesome po-boys, gumbo, or whatever I'm craving.

I have visited Smitty's Seafood several times and the seafood keeps getting better. The prices a very reasonable considering the portions. This place offers a family environment with good service. I have tried several choices on the menu from pob boys, crawfish, pasta, oysters. Smitty's Seafood is phenomenal.

You can smell the seafood boiling when driving by this restaurant. It is certalnly not a fancy place, but you can get some good seafood and not have to wait in long lines as other seafood places nearby would have you to do.
