This is an excellent local eatery open only "in season" ! Food is yummy and prices are great. Come casual and BYOB - may need to wait for a table as there are no reservations for this hot spot right on the bay.

Smitty's is the best! The fish is fresh and delicious and the atmosphere is FUN! Definitely BYOB - if you have to wait, you'll be able to drink your beer / wine in the lot while you wait.

Particularly the tuna wasabi and the crab tuna sandwich. Reasonable prices. Delicious food. Tends to be super busy at night, and they only take cash.
