Smitty's has a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. The seafood is very good especially considering this is Kernersville not the coast. It is primarily bar style seating. They only have a few tables which keeps this being a 5 rating.

Stopped here with my wife after working out at local gym. Food was really good Wait staff was prompt and courteous. Good selection of craft beers. Is a small place , so expect to wait during peak times. But it is worth it.

Enjoyed a meal with some friends at Smitty’s definitely will return. Great oysters, crab dip, fish tacos, salads. Very busy restaurant, but worth the wait. Go early if you can!

Based on other TripAdvisor.com reviews, we decided to try Smitty's Grille for an early dinner tonight. Since other reviews warned of long wait times, we arrived a little before they opened. The kitchen, they told us, opens at 4:30 pm. Before that, we had our...More

One star for good food, one star for friendly waitstaff. Unfortunately we were bombarded with chain smokers on the outdoor patio, both standing and sitting at tables. We were shocked, as this hasn't happened to us in a long, long time. Too bad a few...More

This is one of our favorite places! They do a great job with the steamed seafood--the crab legs are done well every time. The fish tacos are also a favorite. Love the beers they have on tap. The staff are friendly and make an effort...More
