Good food, nothing special

We visited in early August 2015. We arrived shortly after 4:00 pm, so we pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves. The fried green tomatoes were very good. Our meals were decent, but nothing great. Dessert was average. My husband ordered cheesecake and it was the frozen store bought kind.

Wintzell's never disappoints. I have been to other locations so I was hoping it was going to be as good as the other. We were greeted with 3 smiling faces, which is always a great start. And seated with a true sweetheart for a waitress. You don't find many people who truly enjoy their job anymore, and this girl, she... More

It's not my first time to Wintzell's Oyster House and will not be my last. However, my wife went with me this time. She agrees with me, it's the best seafood she has eaten in a long, long time. By the way, the waitress was extremely pleasant and tentative to out needs. The food was served hot and prepared/seasoned just... More

Great food and great service. We've been a few times and we always enjoy it. This is one of our favorite places to eat at and the view is great! We love Wintzell's!

We endured eating in Boaz, Albertville only to find this amazing and not so hidden gem for seafood! Everyone on our group of 9 raved at the quality, flavor and portions! We ate there four of the five remaining nights in Albertville on business. Nothing compares and we had tried! On a scale of 1,2,3 being sustenance only, commercial norm... More

We visited for lunch and the food was excellent. We tried JO's Basket (or Platter - but the lunch version) - with fried shrimp (4), oysters (4), fish (3 large pieces), plus two hushpuppies and a side. The breading on all of it was light, so the seafood was the star - not just a bunch of fried mush. The... More

The food at Wintzell's was good - not great. We sat in the bar area and enjoyed looking over the lake while having a burger and a beer after a long day of fishing. Would I go there again? Sure I would. The food was good and the services was very friendly with a nice lake vibe.

Very good seafood flown in daily. I had shrimp and scallops and my wife had mahi. Both were fresh and prepared very well. We were in Clearwater Beach for a week, and never had a meal this good.

The food was great and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. The seafood platter was huge and delicious the cheese grits left a little to be desired. My wife had the special, grouper, for the money she would rather had the platter that I had. We will defiantly be going back. The food is much better than that place... More
