Consistently good food and good company. A local place with great people watching. Only been here a few times but everyone talks to you no matter who you are. Best place is at the U bar, thats where the action is. Be prepared to wait....More

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

Wonderful wait staff (love Colby). If you are tired of the same old fried seafood, you have to try Smitty's.

Smitty's is always busy so you know the food is great and service matches. Mostly car seating but terrific for meeting up with friends to catch up.

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,...More
