Smitty's Grille is a very popular local seafood restaurant. Expect to have at least a 30 minute wait to be seated most weekends. The atmosphere is unique. The majority of the seating is at a serpentining bar. There are only 2 or 3 tables in the back. A bit weird.... but the wait staff behind the bar are all very personable and it gives you a chance to meet and talk to other people sitting next to you if you so choose.
The food is consistenly great at Smitty's. We have been to Smitty's Grille many times and we are always pleased with the food, it is consistently good. It is your basic seafood, ribs and steak restaurant with the emphasis on the seafood. Local North Carolinians should be comfortable as most dishes are served southern style with your choice of 2 side dishes!.
The main reason to to to Smitty's Grille is for the seafood! They almost always have oysters on the half shell and they have always been fresh.
Tonight we had a special appetizer. Ale Battered Fried mushrooms. The batter was very light and tempora like. They were severed piping hot and they were perfectly cooked. They were served with a buttermilk horseradish sauce!
Next we had the Snow Crab Legs 4 clusters of snow crab legs for around $20. This was quite the belly full. The snow crab legs were very sweet and delicous. We arrived late that night and they were quite busy. The only negative for the evening was crab legs were a bit salty.
For sides we had the garlic bread and the onion rings. The onion rings at Smitty's Grille are always served piping hot right out of the fryer.
If you have never tried Smitty's Grille, you should and you will see why it is so popular with the folks in K-Vegas!
