Delicious lunch in a friendly, fun atmosphere

Stopped here during a visit to Guntersville. Restaurant has a fun atmosphere with lots of quotes and sayings posted throughout. Menu is varied. Would recommend the crab cake BLT or the blackened fish of the day. Service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely return when we're in the area.

Wintzell's Oyster House in Guntersville offers excellent fresh oysters, and great seafood dishes. Wintzell's has several other restaurants and all have excellent seafood plus quick and friendly service. Great atmosphere to dine or wait in the bar for seating.

My husband and I stopped for lunch today! We both had the catch of the day - tilapia and we both had it blackened. It was delicious! If ever in the area again will definitely go here again because I would like to try other items on the menu!

Stopped today for lunch and Wintzell's was a good choice. The food was tasty and well prepared. The portions were a bit small for the price, even for luncheon portions. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. We would return.

This is a well-kept secret in Guntersville. It's on the main road, but it's reminiscent of a neighborhood restaurant and tavern. The food and service were both very good. Treva is an excellent server! Great view of the lake from the waiting area, Of course, anyone who's eaten at Wintzell's know that half the fun is reading all the cute... More

This review is based on 2 visits to this establishment. Our first visit was very enjoyable, friendly staff and excellent food but our second visit was much less enjoyable, service was slow, orders were messed up and the food was second rate.

My favorite, raw oysters on the half shell, very reasonably priced at 10.99 a dozen at the time of our visit. Note: they oysters are Market Priced. Had the broiled seafood platter that was perfectly cooked, and tasty. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, as was the ladies at the front of the house. Definitely would return to this...
