Wintzell's never fails to serve top quality Oyster's and this trip was no different. But that is where the positives end. The table we were seated at was dirty, we had to request that it be cleaned. We ordered the oyster sampler as well as a crab cake for appetizers. Again, I can not say enough about the quality of the oysters. Unfortunately less than 4 minutes after our appetizers were served the table was bombarded with the rest of our entrees. Food was literally piled over the table as the sampler platter is on a fairly large serving tray. Had everything been delicious we would have enjoyed picking through the chaos. Instead the crab cake was served on a heap of wilted lettuce with so much remoulade that it was impossible to determine the true taste of the crab, My daughter's seafood dish was really overcooked to the point that everything was a cheesy mush and my red beans and rice had so much pepper (cheap version of cajun I guess) seasoning that I picked out the chicken and left the pasty beans, sausage and rice behind. I am yet to order anything from Wintzell's menu that has the same level of quality as their oysters so now I say if you are seeking a real dining experience and you want something besides oysters you might should consider somewhere else.
