We've been trying to visit Smitty's for 3 years now - every time we've come to the Sunshine Coast, it's been closed for some reason. We were so excited to finally be able to go, and happily we weren't disappointed. It's certainly not cheap - but portions are large, and the inventiveness of one of our meals was exceptional! They offer oysters done in a variety of ways, an we opted for the fried oysters and the baked oysters in their shells topped with chevre. The fried oysters were fresh, plump, well cooked and were accompanied by a very tasty house-made tartar sauce and salad, but it was the baked oysters that stole the show - they were amazing! It's too bad that they were unaccompanied, but they were so rich and delicious we forgave the lack of a salad or bread (which would have been wonderful to sop up the cheesy goodness in the shells). Although we'd read reviews that complained about the service, our guy was helpful, attentive and pleasant. We'd also read reviews complaining about the overly-loud music, and it was so loud we had trouble carrying on a conversation across our table; however, there is outside seating which we will request when we next visit - the sound level was much more tolerable there. All in all, a very good dining experience, especially if you're an oyster fan!
