Smitty's Oyster House. Gibsons. Sunshine Coast

Sure it’s seafood joint but the server assured me that the lamb burger is the best burger on the sunshine coast.

LAMB BURGER ... 6oz Organic Peace Country Lamb Patty with Sautéed Wild Mushrooms, Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Cilantro Lemongrass Dijon.

I agree. 10/10 wow.

Oyster Shells
As the Burger Blogger Boy I tend to eat more then a few average, mediocre and or crappy burgers. And there are many many out there and after awhile I almost forget why I do this. But then eureka a gem like this is placed before me. Whoever cooked this burger needs a raise. The lamb was perfect, flavourful, pink luscious. The Cilantro lemongrass dijion added some sweetness some totally off the wall-ness.

Grab the ferry to Gibson, head to Smitty’s Oyster House, sit at the bar, have some oysters but do not forget the lamb burger.


  1. I've got bad news and good news: the bad news is that the lamb burger has been taken off the menu (until next summer). The good news is that the lamb burger at Smitty's, though delicious, comes a distant second place to the Acme Burger.
    Pemberton Meadows natural beef (60% medium grind chuck for fat, and 40% fine grind sirloin for flavour) stuffed with truffle compound butter. Double smoked bacon, applewood smoked cheddar, tomato concentrate, dijonnaise, red onion, lettuce and tomato on a bun pan-fried in clarified butter. It is everything I know and love about food and cooking in 1 burger. Give a call and let me know when you're coming and I'll make some time to walk you through the process.

  2. The Acme burger is a real beauty!

  3. You guys are killing me the Acme burger sounds fantastic, unfortunately I am not on the sunshine coast very often. By chance I was there a few weeks ago for business. I've visited your place before happily I had the burger this time. Love the restaurant. I'll look for an excuse to make my way back to the coast and I'll definitely take you up on the offer. Thanks, Anthony
