We spent a day trip on the Sunshine Coast and discovered Smitty's on our way back to Vancouver. This diner can be a bit tricky to find but it's just behind Molly's Reach Restaurant which is visible from Marine Drive. This diner appears to be a favorite amongst the locals. Be certain or order the oysters.

Great place to have good seafood and other items. Outdoor seating in the summer. Fun place for gatherings and socializing.

We found it very expensive for what you got. Had the grilled oysters thought was a meal only got 6 oysters okay flavor but expensive, clam chowder good but expensive for a bowl of soup, 3 very small salmon cakes tasty but expensive not a very satisfying meal plus it took forever to come!!

Visited Smitty's in the middle of the afternoon when there was only a few folks there and sat at the bar that looks out on the harbour & marina. Great service and fun place to have a meal on a rainy Saturday. :-)

Yummy, fresh mussels, best po' boy I've had to date, and friendly, casual staff. Their wine list isn't as hot as it once was, but you can't beat the atmosphere for the coast.

It was two years since our last visit, and it was even better than I remember. The ambience is calming and beautiful. Looking out over the marina, we sipped wine and ate three different kinds of fresh oysters as the afternoon unfolded. Halibut Fritters and potato fries were a great side treat. It's worth taking the Ferry from Horse Shoe... More

This is a lively, well patronised seafood restaurant in the harbour of Gibson's Landing If you like fish and chips go for the halibuut. I drool at the memory

We had a great meal here complete with raw oysters, prawns, mussels, and fish tacos. All outstanding. We sat at the communal long table in the middle of the place on a bustling Friday night . The waitress was really friendly and the service was great. We met the people sitting on both sides of us and had some great... More

We had the fish and chips, chowdah, and the oyster poboy sliders. Just so delicious I wanted to lick the plate. All the food around us looked great too. Come here for a dinner or lunch you won't forget, with a killer view of the harbour.

Thank Bernie G
