Stopped here on the way back from Secret Cove for lunch. The food was delish and lived up to its reputation. Would definitely make the trip to Gibsons just for this restaurant. It was casual, but the playlist was awesome and the service great,

Every time we come to the coast we have to stop at Smitty's. The food is fantastic, best fresh oysters around! Love sitting on the patio (the long table is different and fun) and take in the beautiful view.
