Unassuming local place with great seafood. Delicately fried flour only no heavy breading. Fresh seafood. I was very pleasantly surprised. I will definitely go back soon.

Generous portions, everyone's food was good except the fried oysters,they were a bit over fried. Small place but very clean, the service was very good and friendly. Went during the dinner time rush seated a group of 9, no waiting. Definitely recommend.

All food is good. The all you can eat deal is worth it's price. The artichoke appetizer is my favorite. The food has just the right spice to it's flavor. Worth a visit!!

Stopped for lunch had a pound of shrimp very fresh and tasty. Shrimp had heads and shells... Very fresh. Also enjoyed some good gumbo. Spouse enjoyed her salad. Bread pudding was pretty good. Not fancy place but reasonable price

Went for dinner today and ordered 4 LBS. of crawfish and mushrooms. When my order arrived it was hot. But I had at least a LB. of garlic and onions. The crawfish were small and ok. The mushrooms were hard because they were under cooked. It's ashame because this place does really well and I was expecting better.

Smitty's is a great mom and pop New Orleans area restaurant where you can't go wrong. Great seafood platters, boiled shrimp, crawfish and blue crab, and great gumbo. They also serve a crawfish and corn chowder that is very good. Their service is always on point. I have been going to Smitty's for years and have never been disappointed.

I stopped in for lunch and restaurant was not nearly full. I waited for three minutes to be seated and was told to seat myself. Five minutes past with no service so I walked out. Went back to old faithful Harbor Seafood always good and great service! May want to visit other restaurants and then maybe you will understand what... More
