    The atmosphere was amazing! The drinks were awesome as well! The food for me was not the greatest. I was slightly disappointed.

    This was my first time going to Smelly's Seafood. The food is absolutely delicious. I would like to try everything on the menu. I only have one suggestion. That is because the food does take awhile to be prepared, I think it would be nice if they could place a complimentary bowl of popcorn or potato chips on the tables while the guess are waiting for their meal. I do understand that the chef wants everyone's food to come out with perfection. The taste is absolutely delicious. We had great service. I just think having something to nibble on while waiting will help the people that come in extremely hungry until their food is ready. I meant to include this message for the bar. Make sure you stay visible with customers at the tables. When I was there, it was a large party with adult women and young teenagers. The children had balloons showing that someone was turning 17. I saw one of the parents smoking a vape pen inside the restaurant. I also saw one of the parents go to the bar and order an alcoholic drink and snuck it down to the teenagers to have a drink. These are the kind of customers that don't care about causing a black business to fail.
