Except that their wine selection is very poor, I would give this 5 stars! We did find an inexpensive glass that was acceptable, but our server Cecilia was more than acceptable. She was wonderful. She took excellent care of us, was helpful and friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. Shared some chargrilled... More

The food was excellent and since they have added a 2 for $25 deal to the menu not very pricey either.

I waited until I visited again before I re-evaluated. The last several times we've eaten here I have been disappointed. I had the bacon wrapped jalapeno shrimp which was overcooked, the mac and cheese was dry. In another trip in had one of the special filet (don't remember which one, but it was overcooked and dry and the sides were... More

I don't really enjoy seafood, but my husband loves fried oysters and always orders them here. He says they are terrific. I have been three times and I had the chicken breast -- it was average. I had the grilled Fish fillet (don't know what species) -- and it was good. I also had the steak once and it was... More

Had been looking forward to eating here since we planned our trip...so I was expecting a lot I guess. First, headed south on 431 from Guntersville toward Albertville right after first lake crossing the restaurant is immediately on the right, it's kind of hidden. It's right below Hampton Inn. It's a relaxed kind of place, with lots to look at,... More

We ate dinner at Wintzell's Oyster House in Guntersville on Saturday, November 8, 2014... They had a special that night 2 for $25... You could order either an appetizer or dessert, and an entree from a pre-selected list (which was extensive)...with two sides. We opted to have the fried dill pickles with ranch dressing as our appetizer... I had the... More

The food is great here, but kind of pricey. The view of the river is nice, but inside the restaurant is not very cozy. In fact very cold. Love all the ways they cook oysters. It is in a location that is off the beaten path and I forget it is there sometimes, unless I am going there specifically. The... More

The staff is extremely friendly. Always there to give you what you want. Refills no problem. The food is really good. And the portions are a very good size. We usually go there in the oyster season. Always good nude and fried. Check them out you will be happy you did.
