I had my birthday dinner at Wintzell's. They accommodated my large group and were very friendly and helpful with making suggestions. I really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes with crawfish sauce. I'm definitely going back

Both the cooked and raw oysters were good. $2 pints when I was there on a Tuesday as well. Smelled like fish, but what else would you expect?

Every time we are in Montgomery we try to plan a trip to Wintzells Oyster House. The food is always delicious and plentiful. In fact I usually have to get a take home box. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a trip to Wintzell's. There is usally a waiting line but it is worth the wait an doesn't usually take to long.

My first trip to Wintzell's. We went during Happy Hour and sat at the bar. Aubrey was our bartender and told us all of the Happy Hour specials including drinks and appetizers. We enjoyed a dozen raw oysters and some tailspin shrimp. We then split the oyster sampler which was delicious. Good oysters, good service and a good time!

Had dinner with 4 couples. The service was good but food was, in my opinion, over priced. Fried shrimp for $15.99 is a little excessive! I rate restaurant by, do I want to go back next day...answer is no.

By far one of the worst service I have ever experienced. To start, we ordered 3 drinks from the bar and 20 minutes later, still no drinks. We got our appetizer before getting our drinks. Finally the waitress comes back and tells us they are out of the beer we ordered. The waitress was very inattentive and we had to... More
