Smitty’s Oyster House over on the Sunshine Coast in Gibson’s Wharf is a fine oyster bar right on the docks (just down the street from Molly’s Reach). Smitty’s is opened by the same folks over at Rodney’s Oyster House and featured on You Gotta Eat Here on Food Network. We’re here on the Vancouver Island for the long weekend and it is one of the best seafood restaurants in Gibsons.
Before I get into the food, take a look at the beautiful view at the wharf. It is even more beautiful during sunsets. If you are lucky, you may get to catch some fireworks too! Come early in the morning if you want to buy some fresh seafood and bring it back to the cabin or throw it on the barbie!
Fresh Raw Oysters: daily fresh selection. Nothing beats fresh oysters with lemon juice and fresh ground pepper. Comes with an assortment of cocktails sauces and vinaigrette.
Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse 7: Frangelico and Rich Callebaut Dark Chocolate Mousse. We like it because it wasn’t too sweet!
Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee 7: Classic French Custard with Caramelized Top
But really, here is the place for oysters and drinks. Everything else is secondary.
