Busy place!

My husband had a seafood platter (fried) that included catfish, scallops and crab claws. He said it was the best catfish he'd ever had. I had the "fish of the day" special. It was red snapper, which I normally love. This piece, however, was awful. It was a big hunk of undercooked mush. I should... read more

We chose this because my wife wanted Oysters that weren't fried. She had them on the half shell, she said they were excellent. My shimp were very good also.

Nice, casual atmosphere. Our server was vey helpful. The Oyster sampler was good, but frankly, we also had some raw on the half shell and they were still the best, excellent, fresh from Appalachiacola Bay.

We visited Wintzell's for the first time. My husband had the oysters on the half shell appetizer and the fish tacos as his meal. He raved about both and said they were excellent. I had the lunch J.O. Fried platter which was oysters, shrimp, and a really light white fish. It was very good, my family tried the fish and... More

Arrived during happy hour(s)...order the oyster sampler...wonderful!! Can't really decide which was my favourite! My husband, an anti-seafood eater, actually tried one that had all the bacon bits on it....and liked it! Great meal, good service, interesting decor. Loved all the sayings on the walls. Some gave us a good chuckle.

My wife and I came here during their happy hour so that we could get some cold brews for less and she could get some of their oysters at half price. The restaurant was unique and our waitress served us very well. My wife really enjoyed her oysters and entree. I, however, wasn't really all that impressed but I did... More

Fed a family of five with very good food! We tried something different and loved everything! We went on a busy Thursday night and had great service, although the first waitress declined to let us sit at her table as she said she was too busy. Maybe that was a blessing, because after some jumbling around the tables, the waitress... More
