I have aways loved stuffed crabs but it seems that you can no longer get them anywhere. They are no longer available on the Gulf anymore, just crab cakes. Captain D's have them but Wintzells have the best. This was the first time we have...More

The first time I went to Wintzell's I really liked it, so I decided to go back there for my birthday a few months later. What a big mistake. The food was not good at all. And this wasn't just me saying this, it was...More

Also good for groups. Not cheap, but not expensive either. Casual atmosphere. The oysters are good, and reasonable.

Whenever we travel where there is a Wintzell's we make a visit during happy hour. Draft pint beers for $1.50 and appetizers for $5.00 make this a great bargain. Wintzell's is a quirky establishment with lots of signs to read around the room. The only...More

First time ever at Wintzell's. Food completely surpassed our expectations, and we consider ourselves Gulf food experts. Everything our party ordered was delicious and fresh - we had flounder, tilapia, low country boil, shrimp and grits, crab cakes, and boiled shrimp. All very, very good....More
