The food was incredible. We had fried green tomatoes with crawfish sauce, red fish with cajun rice and shrimp, and bacon wrapped shrimp. There was not one thing that I didn't like. Hands down, one of the best meals I've ever had in my life.

Wintzell's Oyster House is a must see and eat every time I go to Mobile. It is consistently great food, fantastic service, and has been a family tradition going on the third generation of visiting Yankees in my family.
