Great friendly place

my husband and i went here on one of our dates and it was wonderful. my husband had the blackened mahi mahi and he and i shared the oyster sampler both were very delicious. the waitress was really nice and very helpful its a bit pricey but most seafood is. we would go back again.

We had dinner after reading the reviews here and we're disappointed. We felt the food was average. Service was slow and the place was NOT busy.

This was my first time visiting a Wintzell's and I most likely will not visit another. Service was slow, seemed to be more focused on the bar and regulars. Food was small portioned and sub-par. For a restaurant claiming to be an oyster house I thought the oysters were a disgrace and all the seafood tasted a little off. Best... More

My family and I went here to celebrate my birthday. I had fried shrimp. They were very lightly breaded just like I love them and very delicious. Salad was really crisp and fresh. Dressing was great! My husband and mom had the steak. They both enjoyed their meals. My daughter had seafood pasta. She has already been talking about going... More

Food is pretty good but not what you would expect based on their background. A little pricey for the area. Setting and facility is very nice.

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
