Wintzell’s is a local tradition. This location is about 75 years old and started with 4 stools at a bar where you could get fresh shucked oysters. Now the menu is so huge and the food is great. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff too.

Their oyster sampler platter and chargrilled oysters are very good. Service was engaging and friendly. Stuffed flounder and redfish bienville entrees were both excellent.

Happy hour oysters are a great deal. 20oz beers for $3. Friendly staff, good service. Bathrooms are a bit dingy, but everything else is good.

We have never experienced eating at a Wintzell’s before. We will be back. Great service. Nice variety of items on the menu. We had a light lunch. Gumbo soup was very good. Crab cakes were excellent! Hush puppies were very good.

They serve excellent seafood. But the service is not up to the level of the chef. The menu and the decor/atmosphere are that of a diner and the food is delivered from heaven. Depends on what you are looking for.

I believe happy hour is from 4-6 or 7. We were there earlier in the day for lunch and was pleasantly surprised.
