Wintzell's Oyster House
There’s no shortage of renowned oyster establishments in the South. But TripSmarter.com pegged Wintzell’s Oyster House as its #1 destination for the specialty. “Fried, stewed, or nude,” they come served in every way imaginable at Wintzell’s—oysters are, unsurprisingly so, the trademark dish. And they’ve been the trademark dish since the eatery’s flagship location opened in 1938.
Regional seafood favorites also dominate the menu, from low-country boils to Cajun seafood fettuccine and bacon-wrapped shrimp. While the original location became something of a landmark in historic Mobile, the restaurant has since expanded to multiple locations. Each one, though, retains the original’s decorative signature: several dozen whimsical signs on the walls. The website even features some of their slogans: “Never kick a man when he is down—he may get up.”
The food was delicious, as was the dessert!Erin H., Yelp!, 11/24/12

“Wintzell's has just closed in Northport and will be moving to Tuscaloosa on Skyland Boulevard. In the next 6-7 weeks they will reopen. We went the weeks before they closed and the red fish was grilled and all 4 were slightly dry. They made it right by giving our table some bread pudding, which was outstandingly good.”
“Just moved to a new location the day after I went. I've never had a bad experience there. The fish tacos and shrimp and grits are great!”
“Wintzells is closing at their current location, but will open up again in March at another location.”
