Smitty’s is an icon in Somers Point. Limited menu, heavily tipped toward seafood. It’s a BYOB. Great for families and it’s very reasonably priced. Always crowded but you can open you beer or wine and have a cocktail as you wait. Fun atmosphere.

No trip to Sommers Point is complete without a visit to Smitty’s, aka the Clam Bar. The seafood is always delicious and no matter how hot it outside we always have a cup of piping hot clam chowder, either red or white. It gets very...More

Awesome. Waiting outside not an issue. Bring some kind of liquor or wine as you’ll wait an hour. But that’s ok. It can be stifling hot inside. No air. Only fans. In a humid night skip it. I sweated all night. Very unpleasant. So go...More

I had their clam chowder for an appetizer and Crab Cakes as my main dish. The chowder was very bland. I wish it had more flavor. The Crab Cakes were fried cakes of almost all stuffing. There was no crab taste to it at all....More

Prototypical surf clam bars with quick service. No AC so don’t come here when it’s 98 degrees in the shade

They take only cash and no reservations. During the summer months it's at least an hour wait outside in the sun. We do take out instead. Food is good, nice fish. Lousy crab, good clams, oysters, and scallops. Good service.

I love Smitty's and have been going there for years. They offer great inexpensive food. Their daily specials start at 4pm, I am never disappointed with any of their specials. After 5pm, there is a long wait. Take a bottle of wine/drinks while you wait....More
