My wife and I went there tonight. Good and service was great; I have eaten at two of the other locations and food has always been good. Tonight I have catch of the day (snapper) grilled; it was a little dry but the crawfish sauce served with it saved it. Had fried okra and cheese grits as sides. My wife... More

Great place to eat seafood! We love to eat on the screened porch whenever the weather cooperates and the bar area is frequently full. Wintzell's is located on Guntersville lake which hosts the Bassmaster and other local fishing tournaments and other water enthusiasts activities.

We had fried shrimp and my daughter asked for steam shrimp. They were heated without any seasoning at all. Oysters on half shell were large and good. We paid for the name not the food. $75 3 people and no alcohol.

Stopped in for dinner. The selection was heavily slatted toward oysters (duh), but had a good selection of other seafood and the nominal small amount of non-seafood items. I ordered the catfish with onion rings and steamed broccoli. The food came out quick and everything was piping hot. The catfish fillets were nicely breaded and very, very good. The onion... More

After not being waited on at another restaurant we went here. Food was excellent and server was gracious and attentive to our orders. Would go back in a minute and the broiled seafood platter was perfection. Better than at the coast.

Enjoyed a meal of crab legs, corn on the cob, and red potatoes. Topped it off with a dish of Blackberry cobbler. It was a good meal and my waiter, Lee, did a great job of keeping the tea glass full and had a great attitude even though I didn't get out until just after they closed. He kept checking... More

We loved this place! A one of a kind! Had the J. O. Lunch platter and was cooked perfect. Very casual atmosphere with a lakeside view.

Very entertaining atmosphere with a large variety of foods. Oysters were definitely good of course. Great view of the lake. Inside and outside dining. Large bar. Family atmosphere as well in front.

Went with a few friends and our experience was a bit hit and miss. Some of the food was absolutely great and other food was okay. I'd say this is a good place to eat, but it certainly didn't knock my socks off.

Food was okay but tainted by the smell of cigarettes by a waiter who was more interested in his smoke breaks than in service. Long wait - repeatedly - for okay food.
