We really enjoy the friendly staff, great atmosphere, and excellent seafood at Smitty's. It's a great local place to visit with friends while enjoying an excellent margarita and Smitty's steamer pot. We do just fine splitting the steamer pot for a light dinner. Highly recommended.

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.
