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

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!!

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 restaurant food is served there....

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
