My granddaughter says: When we walked in, there was no wait. (We came at lunch time.) If people don't like waiting come at lunch. The atmosphere was casual. The waitress was really nice. She had all of our needs covered with a good consistency, time...More

I tend to stay away from touristy places during the summer, but I took a chance. I haven't been here in years and it was just as I remembered. We chose to sit at the bar, I love watching all that goes on in the...More

A local favorite that's only open seasonally. Food is good but perhaps a bit overrated. I try to go at least once per season. Expect long waits in the summer. Check the chalkboard specials. I like it here but it's not "amazing." Just good basic...More

Often a wait but it moves fast. Nothing fancy. BYOB but no wine glasses. Generous portions. Feels rushed. Good food simply presented. Reasonable prices.

We've eaten at Smitty's for ten years. No Frills, just the best seafood ever had. Bring your own bottle. Their clams, fresh caught seafood, are he best. Sure, there's a crowd, come early and be prepared! Good service once you get a seat, people friendly.

Unfortunately, Smittys Clam Bar doesn't open until 4:30. People come in to the parking lot early and wait unail they open their doors. There are breakfast hours in the same building from 7 to 12
