I wanted to try a bit of everything so I got the sampler appetizer with shrimp, oysters and crawfish. It was very fresh and had a great flavor with three dipping sauces. I didn't realize it would all be fried so I couldn't eat a lot but I did like it. I had a great conversation with some locals at... More

We stumbled on Smitty's last week. The seafood was really good and Angelle, our server, was terrific. The salad with garlic dressing and fried oysters was very good. I'd order that again.

Just stopped by for lunch. Had a 3# tray of excellent crayfish. They were a bit small but unusual for the time of season. I saw lots of dishes I'd like to try.

I ordered a oyster/shrimp platter and I got 6 oyster and 6 shrimps for a pricey $17. I called back and spoke with Tammy and she said that's all they serve on a platter and I replied "for $17" and she said yes. I always go here and get crawfish until I discovered I was paying for a pound of... More

We went there during Xmas break as a family lunch. Great service and accomidations considering we had a Senior citizen and a mobility impaired adult. We shared 2 seafood boats and 2 extra stuffed crabs for 7 of us and brought a doggie bag home. The food was fresh and well prepared. The stuffed crab is one of the best... More

I am from Florida but was born & raised in New Orleans. Each trip back, I look for a good seafood restaurant. My cousin, who lives in Kenner, highly recommended Smithy's. We hit it twice in 3 days!! We got lunch there on Friday, on the way from the airport. Had a fried oyster po-boy. VERY DELICIOUS! This evening, after... More

I love the seafood here. Seasoned to perfection. You get a lot of food for your money. Service is great and the staff is very friendly.

Our family ate dinner here on a busy Friday night. It was crowded, but we were seated pretty quickly, and the service was fast. The food was mediocre. My crawfish tails and my husband's shrimp tasted identical. And everyone's food was overfried. Worst of all, the oil the food was fried in tasted old. Nice service, not so great food.
