From Our Editors

In 1938, J. Oliver Wintzell opened a tiny seafood joint on Dauphin Street in historic Mobile, Alabama. With room for just six customers to hop up on barstools and sample oysters prepared in three signature styles??fried, stewed, or nude"?the eatery harbored modest ambitions and kept itself in check with walls strewn with Oliver?s homespun sayings. Oysters this great can?t remain a secret for long, though, and Wintzell?s Oyster House began to grow at such a rate that Oliver was compelled to expand to new locations throughout Alabama.

Despite the restaurant?s rapid growth, remarkably little has changed since those early days. Oliver?s wit and wisdom still covers the walls, and the menu still tempts with its stuffed crabs, USDA-certified steaks, and signature oysters. In keeping with the cozy atmosphere Oliver cultivated by necessity more than 70 years ago, shuckers stationed at the oyster bar chat with diners as they garnish half shells with hickory-smoked bacon and slap away the tentacles of sneaky krakens. Tom Bross of Delta Sky Magazine has some helpful words of advice for first-time visitors to the restaurant: "Let the Southern hospitality, laid-back tempo and maybe a cold one help you unwind."
