Short trip over the bridge from Ocean City. Be prepared to wait, but bring your beer/wine. Corn fritters M-Th are amazing and all their soups are delicious. I have enjoyed everything I've had in the soy-wasabi sauce. Great low-key, family friendly seafood place.

Had dinner at Smitty's on 7/24/2014. It had been a few years since I was there... (MY LOSS). Started off with little necks on the half shell, and as they say "Our clams still can't be licked". They were wonderful, served with a great cocktail sauce. My wife and I then split two of the dinner specials for the nights.... More

If it's summer time in Somers point then head to the Clam Bar for some tasty no-frill seafood. Fantastic food and friendly service. Usually a wait but bulb and enjoy a few cold ones until your table is ready. Just had a sampler with flounder, scallops and shrimp, delicious and of course some steamers that were perfectly cooked. Nothing fancy,... More

Had a great Seafood Salad at Smitty's Clam Bar! The large bowl was filled with a delicious Orzo pasta salad and good-sized portions of calamari, shrimp, crab & scallops. Everything was served on a bed of lettuce with cherry tomatoes scattered throughout. The tasty balsamic vinaigrette dressing blended everything together. The price was a very reasonable $10.99 and I was... More

I have been coming to Smitty’s (i.e. the clam bar) for many years. It’s a not-to-fancy restaurant on the bay with good food and a Jersey shore atmosphere. It has an open feel – open windows, many fans, flies and local people. Come hungry in your casual clothes and enjoy some good seafood. There are clams, chowder, seafood, chicken, sandwiches... More

When summer is here, this is the 'go to' seafood place. Dress and seating is casual. For lunch, 1-2 is a great time. As for dinner, expect a wait after 5 pm. If you're willing to stand behind the bar seating, you can jump in anytime chairs open up. As for the food, well, they have very fresh seafood every... More

Sit at the counter and watch all the action! You won't be disappointed in the energy or the food!! Clam chowder (red or white) is the best anywhere!!! Order by color and you won't look like a tourist! Soup cooked in huge vats. Not soupy but real chowder with plenty of clams, potatoes, corn, just good stuff! Refills on drinks!... More

This old-time establishment is one of the best in the area. You can eat at the wrap around counter outside or choose an indoor table. There's no A/C, but there are ample windows and fans to make it feel like you're eating on the dock. We had steamed clams, scallops and seafood alfredo. The meals were delicious. The wait staff...

Smitty's has been around for a long time. It is a very small indoor/outdoor seating place. Their calm chowder is wonderful. All their seafood is FRESH. It is a BYOB. Everyone is friendly. It does get very crowded around lunch and dinner. But it is worth the wait. Yummy seafood.
