The night of January 7, 2013 I decided to give Wintzell's a whirl. I was in town for a business meeting and figured oysters 'some way' would give me a much needed pick-me-up after a day of 'blah, blah, blah...' well, no... my meal, and that of my business associate was blah, blah, blah.
Our server was very nice but the food was 'warm' at best and 'not' made fresh 'in-house' as both the menu and server stated. Wintzell's was a grand disappointment - end of story.

Service, food and value are all excellent. The oyster po-boy was one of the best I've had. Not only seafood, but there is a good selection and variety for those who don't care for seafood. Casual atmosphere and just a bit noisy.

A lunch visit with the wife and business partner was a total disappointment. It took almost 10 minutes to get beverages and about 30 minutes to get food. The blackened tilapia was not only lacking spice but undercooked. The crab cake BLT that was highly recommended by our server was disappointing with the undercooked and tough bacon overpowering the sandwich. Refills on drinks were non-existent. Don't go here!

Food was excellent ,especially the oysters. I had a shrimp po boy and it was filling.
Only problem is that if a convention is held in town there will be a wait, but worth it.
