For the life of me I can't figure out how this place could be number 17, it is great. I had the platter of fried fish and oysters two times it two days. It just does not get any better than this. I usually only eat cornmeal on fish and oysters, but I will make an exception for Wintzell's. It... More

I realize there are mixed reviews about this establishment; however I could not speak more highly of the location. There are multiple locations for this restaurant but this is the most superior. I will only be reviewing this location. There is a large assortment of oysters, fish, shrimp, shellfish, beer, desserts, etc. Everyone in your party should be able to... More

Aside from the wide assortment of oysters, this restaurant offers a wide variety of shellfish and fish. I particularly enjoyed the combination platter of fired fish and oysters. The batter was nice and light allowing you to enjoy more of the fish instead of the breading. I would also recommend the fish tacos. What I like about this restaurant is... More

We were looking for good seafood and we found it! The gumbo was excellent and was a great starter to a delicious meal. There are plenty of signs to read as you wait for your food to arrive and the place was bustling at lunchtime. I had a oyster poboy and my son had the low country boil. Both were... More

We ate at Wintzell's on our last night in Mobile. We wished we had tried it sooner! Our server, Haddy, was fabulous! She anticipated our needs and took very good care of us! We had a baby withus and she made suggestions for him specifically. Hubby and son had raw oysters and loved them. I had the beans and rice... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at Wintzell's. The wedge salad was great, as was the seafood gumbo. Our server was really nice. The place has a fun atmosphere, with lots of interesting signs and information on oysters.

Sadly, we never seem to book a restaurant ahead of time when we're traveling. Usually, we end up asking locals for advice...which worked out perfectly in this case. Wintzell's is a great place for a meal: atmosphere galore, very friendly staff, and delicious food. The two of us basically ate our way through four meals. Shrimp and grits, red beans... More
