Good Cajun Seafood

First of all you are not on the Gulf, but do not let that stop you. A good variety of dishes. This chain has a good rep especially for their oysters. I much prefer their other dishes. Had blackened Redfish with shrimp good combination. Their seafood augratin is a great dish. Staff friendly... read more

The best thing on menu is the chilled shrimp appetizer. The fish is not thrilling. It all tastes the same and just not very good. The staff is always great though. If you like oysters this is a good place. I can't vote on them as I don't eat them but others seem to like them here.

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.
