there more to new orleans than the quarter

We have chosen Smitty's many times, it's a great little fried and boiled seafood house. the crawfish are as good as they get. they also have very well prepared fish and shrimp. just off the corner of Williams rd. and Esplanade

My son can in from Florida and wanted New Orleans seafood. We were placed at a large table enough for a group of 7, including 3 teens. Everyone enjoyed their seafood.

Having grown up in Jax, FL, we know good fresh seafood. Did some research here and found Smitty's. When we arrived at the airport food was the next stop, and Smitty's was on the way. The building is very basic, and not to be confused with the bar of the same name next door. Bit of a seafood odor outside,... More

Being one of the higher ranked places I was hoping for more. Got here after the dinner crowd so the slow service was not because they were busy. Never got silverware even after asking several times. Gumbo was pretty good. For $10 I expected to find crab in my crab cakes, but it was just a giant hush puppy flattened.... More

Nothing fancy. This is, however, a local favorite for all types of seafood and some Italian dishes. I have been there several times. The food is good and not expensive.

I enjoyed a salad and had some oysters in the half shell. Basic setting but great food and polite service. Likely the best option in that area.

There are so many seafood restaurants in the New Orleans area, you'd think restaurateurs would step up their game. Not here. The food and service was just poor. There were like 2 servers for our group of 13, but neither seemed to care if we were taken care of. Not a bit of concern. We were missing a drink, we... More

Local food without the tourist pricing. Small place that has great crawfish, oysters on the half shell, and gumbo. Get there early to beat the crowd!!
