Found Smitty's via a recommendation from a bartender in downtown Winston Salem. The seafood is plentiful, the nightly specials are a great draw. Limited seating for larger parties...largest table is for four, no reservations. Oysters are great served raw or steamed, and by half dozed, dozen, half a peck or a peck with home made cocktail sauce.

If you are looking for a good Seafood restaurant check this one out!!! We started with tea which my husband didn't think was sweet enough and I started with Pineapple upside down cake mixed drink which was great! As an appetizer we order fish bites and they were really good, loving the tarter sauce that came with it! Next we... More

The food here was delicious! The tugboat is full of fresh and delicious seafood. You get two sides as well - be sure to try the macaroni salad! Service was fast and prices were just right.

This is my favorite spot for a girls night. The decor feels like a beach bar and the seafood is fresh and delicious. Love the crab dip, firecracker shrimp and burgers. It fills up fast, every night of the week, so get there early. Just about all the seats are at the bar, plus a few tables in the back... More

Fun atmosphere and great seafood. We were visiting the area and enjoyed our meal. I had the scallops, which were very good. My husband had the tenderloin, since he's not a seafood guy, and enjoyed his meal too.

Absolutely the best seafood for the price in the entire piedmont triad...hands down! Catch of the day specials are awesome. And the BARGE feast is magnificent to say the least; oysters, shrimp, clams, crab legs, & scallops steamed to perfection along with excellent side dishes, too. And my wife says they have the best philly cheese steak she's ever had...no... More

Great food... Our server was very attentive. My husband got the flounder stuffed with crab meat. He loved it. My salmon was cooked just right and the veggies were delicious. We liked that you could choose your sides with each meal. We also love that we bid on the Gift Certificate that we used at the Pink Ribbon Rally. So... More

Unassuming local place with very fresh seafood. Delicately fried in flour only. Far cry from the usual heavilly breaded greasy stuff. I was pleasantly surprised. Iwill definitely be going back soon.
