Seafood dinner

We have dinner fairly often at Smittys . Family friendly, large portions, and great taste make it a favorite of our whole family. Seafood platter is great.

We go often with our family or when we have visitors in town. Great food, and some of the best Gumbo anywhere!

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.

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.
