I consider it a seafood shack on the bay. Prices are very reasonable. Very popular. Food is basic - seafood prepared fried, baked or broiled. Several sauces available. BYOB - plastic glasses provided. Long wait!!

At Smitty's you must embrace the wait. Put your name in, grab a bench and enjoy your BYOB beverage. Great people watching. Once you are in be prepared to be stuffed. Fresh fish, sides and plenty of it. Any combo meal will feed you for several days. I go with the fried combo. It's so bad for you but so... More

A great time was had by all! Our party of 13 visited on the eve of Smitty's closing for the summer (Saturday, September 13th). The wait time was as it usually is...about 3 beers in 'beer' time. Go prepared to wait as they do not accept reservations. It's a BYOB place, so bring your own bottle(s) of fun (Smitty's will... More

Remember: T/A reviews and levels are based on [experience] - not necessarily food or amenity or quality levels. With that said, the only way that you'll find a classy experience at Smitty's is if you bring your own martini glass. Yes, you will wait, but that's half the fun, BYOB, wine, whatever and hangout outside along with everyone else on... More

It was my first time here and was highly recommended by friends. I will say this is a old school seafood experience. Expect to wait awhile for a table but we got lucky and found a place at the counter. My opinion I think it was better experience sitting at the counter than inside. It felt like eating at a... More

I went to the Clam Bar about 2 weeks ago and just remembered to review it. I was meeting with clients (a husband and wife) and since they were playing hooky the rest of the afternoon they invited me to lunch. I didn't want to go since the last time I'd been there it was lame but what are you... More

Spent a week at the shore this year and this place was highly recommended by my friend and other TA reviews. Tried to get in last year and my husband would wait the hour plus. This year we tried again for my birthday and again it was an hour wait, at least. Since it was my birthday i got to... More
