“Dern flies”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

The food is good. Apparently the flies think the same thing. Oh well, I'm from the country, so not a big deal. I just have to keep fanning my food. Next time I'll just eat outside

“Probably as good as expected”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

My wife and I had dinner here recently. Overall, not bad, but not good, just average.

Ambiance: Decorated with "catchy" quotes and "decorator tacky seafood house".

Service: Pleasant, but SLOW

Food: Dozen raw oysters were fair. Some were very good, while others seemed dry and old. My wife had the bacon-wrapped shrimp, which were very good, fresh, hot, and tasty. I had the fried combination of shrimp and oysters. The oysters were bland and could have come out of a can from anywhere. The shrimp had more flavor and were much better. The hushpuppies were simply bad.

Conclusion: Decent place to eat, but not somewhere special.

Great night all around; sat outside on a cool summer night, waitress was incredible, buffalo shrimp are a must, then the redfish with shrimp topper - excellent.

“Seafood in Montgomery, AL”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Wintzell's is a good place to get a meal downtown. It is near the convention center, river walk park and the ball field. We had a nice tasty meal.
