I must preface this by stating that I am not a seafood person. Still, the chicken is good and the weekday drink specials were good and appreciated. It is right down from the Guntersville Hampton Inn (parking lots adjoin)

Side dishes tasted as if they'd come from a #10 can. We chose the restaurant because it was next door to our hotel. We wished we had gotten in the car and... More

The fried catfish, oysters, hush puppies, shrimp and slaw are excellent. The service was outstanding and prices were reasonable. Very good atmosphere. Dining on water and very clean facilities.

The food is delicious! I love the variety! Come hungry because the food is too good to pass up an appetizer or a dessert. The fried pickles are awesome! The steaks are delicious. my favorite entrée is the Maui Maui. You can't go wrong with anything chocolate on the dessert menu. The bartender is also talented! I love the mixed... More

Stopped bye for dinner on a fishing trip and had some great seafood with excellent friendly service. The sea food was tasted fresh and was cooked just right. I will definitely be back when on the area.

I've eaten at several locations of this Mobile chain. It is consistent at each. I took 2 customers to lunch. All had gumbo which was deep flavored and lots of seafood in it. I had the seafood platter which is a very large meal. One had the Blackened Talipia which he enjoyed, and the other had the salmon salad,with a... More

Im spoiled after my time in Mobile. Food was decent. The oysters are definitely the best choice. I live about 30 minutes from here, and can't say i'd make a special trip. My waitress was hot, so there's that...

In town for the night, I went to Wintzells for a couple of beers. I was pleased to find Sweetwater 420 on tap. Bartender Susan was awesome (and cute!). After a few beers and watching food go out, I ordered a Low Country Boil. It was a wonderful collection of steamed shrimp, smoked sausage, corn on the cobb and new... More
