Oysters

We love Wintzell's. This week was not a good week for the oysters. But, we'll try it every time we come down.

Decent while passing through the area. Would only eat here again if it was local. Food wasn't bad. But not as good as other local places like the Oyster House. Also, the deck tables are uncomfortable. And my silverware keeps falling through the slats. Not a bad place. Just not stand out.

Should have known by the previous reviews and the smell of the place when we walked in. We ordered the sampler oyster plate and it was okay. I little too cooked but edible. The waitress was really nice and attentive. The water and iced tea tasted like the cups were washed in crab boil!

This is a place we make sure to go to each time and make sure to eat there at least once each day. Love the variety of food and easy to get to.

We ate here Sunday evening about 8 pm and there was a line of people waiting but most were in large groups so they seated us quickly to a small table. I ordered fried shrimp with slaw and broccoli, my wife ordered a shrimp and crab casserole, and my son ordered fish and oyster combo. My shrimp was cooked perfectly... More

We have been to the one in Fairhope and Orange Beach. Fairhope was awful service and we went to Orange Beach thinking maybe it would be different. NO! Food was great the service stunk like Fairhope did. After dinner we orders dessert my husband got Key Lime pie and it was so bitter he sent it back. And then the... More

The oysters in the half shell were wonderful. I had the fried shrimp, and it was also excellent. We ended up buying a bottle of their Shuckin 'N Peelin sauce because it was so delicious.

We are in OBA half the year and have eaten at many restaurants here. This was our second time at Wintzells and it has been very good both times. It is not fancy but it is good. My wife is allergic to shellfish and orders the ribeye and both times it was excellent. A great cut of meat cooked just... More

When in Gulf Shores, escape the traffic on 59 and head West. This jewel in Orange Beach was quite the find, a laid back, casual restaurant with no wait and delicious food. The walls are plastered with plaques having amusing sayings which keep you very occupied reading as your food is being prepared. Speaking of food, fresh seafood and lots... More
