Smitty's Clam Bar has excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and it deserves the high ratings. Seafood here is as fresh as you can get anywhere, and it's priced very reasonably. Seafood here would likely be almost three times more expensive and not as fresh at almost any restaurant by our home outside Baltimore. It's also very kid friendly. Smitty's appeals to... More

Smitty's is on the back bay of Somers Point and can be a little overwhelming when it's really hot out. You can also expect to wait if you get there after 5 pm. But the seafood is fresh and not expensive. I usually make a few trips to Smitty's during our summer stay and never leave disappointed. My choice is... More

We go to Smitty's every summer and it never fails to please. Typically an hour wait but we're never disappointed. Great food and fun atmosphere/location.

You’ll queue for a table at this ultra casual seafood stand right on the water (a marina) near the Somer’s Point /Ocean City Bridge. And, the outdoor waiting area adjacent to the parking lot is literally an ad hoc evolving tailgate party. You can BYOB tho' and sip while you wait to “sup”. If you’re missing something to drink out... More

The wait was not bad. Staff very accommodating, providing cups and ice while we were seated during the waiting. Interesting location. Service was good. My fried seafood platter was as expected, large portions, satisfying. My wife's baked seafood dish was delicious. I'd go again.

This small clam bar is a great place for seafood especially. It's BYOB and no credit cards, so come prepared. Also, there were a lot of flies. The scallops, crab, shrimp were all good. Prices for the specials were very good. Had to wait for a seat, but this time of year, every place is crowded.

We come here every summer, when we go on vacation to OCNJ. A small, quaint restaurant right on the water, it gets packed during normal dinner rush. We always go for a late lunch/early dinner, and walk right in! Fair warning, there is no air conditioning, but on breezy days, with the fans going it stays cool enough. My favorite... More

Had an early dinner at the Clam Bar - and it was excellent. Fresh and delicious food!! Great small restaurant - with awesome food for a good price. BYOB and a great family feeling. My mom said the tuna was the best she has had and everyone's food was excellent. We will be back.
