Best place in Kernersville to get oysters and really good fresh seafood. Salmon is great and Tuesday is the night for crab legs.

When we crave fresh seafood, Smitty's is our go-to place. Just be warned, there is often a wait especially after 5:30 on Friday and Saturday. I had the Shrimp Skewers with the Margarita glaze which included 1 side. I chose the steamed zucchini, yellow squash...More
