“Very nice place, lots of good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I liked the place, huge oyster bar, comfortable and homey. Everyone was extremely nice. I would agree that lunch was a bit overpriced. Everything was good, the oysters were tremendous, but beyond that just a bit too much. I would say, compared to "The Original Oyster House," and Felix's it didn't feel like a food factory or a fake fish camp (or is it campy???).

All in all very nice. I would recommend it for a business lunch, perhaps drinks and oysters after work.

“Always Good!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Have tried all the other Wintzell's and this one is as good as the rest. I had the shrimp basket with fries and cole slaw. It didn't disappoint. My husband (as always) ordered the crabmeat omelet poboy. I've never seen these anywhere else, and they really are special.

“Better than other Baldwin County locations by a long shot.”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

I've had consistently better food and service at this location than either Fairhope or Orange Beach. That said, it's a local chain, with the same kitchsy sayings stapled to the walls and same menu as everywhere else. That can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your point of view. I'm a fan of the jerk chicken nachos, myself. Makes a good little meal!

“Too expensive and small portions”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Food is ok for seafood but is just typical fried foods, service was good, prices are not worth it unless you can get specials they offer occasionally

It was fun, but the food was average. We left unimpressed.
