Service depends on how busy they are. To me, the menu could be expanded some. Just doesn't seem to be a whole lot of choices.

This place is consistently good. Had gumbo for lunch and was totally satisfied. If you can be seated outside, take advantage of the opportunity. A huge live oak shades the deck and it's comfortable even on the hottest of days.

attended a large event dinner and we were offered a range of typical gulf coast eats. Everything was tasty and the service was decent. The only downside is that the rooms are somewhat loud. There is not a lot of sound deadening.

Chargrilled oysters were good ( wished it had the melted butter in the shell like dragos New Orleans) Fried seafood platter was huge and husband says it was all prepared perfectly. I had broiled seafood platter / also huge portion... we honestly could have... More

They have a large outdoor deck and the atmosphere is casual but exciting. The food was quite good and the service was nice. There's a lot of nice restaurants in the area and this is one of them. It's part of a small chain in the area.

Catfish was delicious but they have trouble getting adequate staff at these restaurants so our service was very lacking. Tables waited 15 minutes or more to be approached.

We stopped to have lunch and had the oysters, the oysters was the largest I have ever had. We had three dozens and the shrimp. the staff was very friendly. If you are in Fairhope you need to stop and have lunch or dinner

Ok so my husband and I love to eat raw oysters and he loves cold beer. Sometimes we just want to chill somewhere with alone as grown ups and eat good food. Found this gem at a friend's suggestion. We both agreed that the oysters were the best we had ever eaten anywhere in the world. Really fresh and ice... More

Decided that we had a need for oysters and our desire was fulfilled at Wintzell's Oyster house. These were probably so of the best oysters I have ever had. Beer was cold and the oysters were absolutely delicious. We dined on their deck and the weather was perfect. definitely the stop for oyster lovers when in Fairhope Alabama.
