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!

I jumped on this deal because we love their food. We don't go there often, but usually a special Sunday or to celebrate with a better than normal meal.

The food is okay but the service is not good. The manager should be out on the floor making sure that the staff is working and not all huddled up talking and not paying any attention to their customers. This is not the first time this has been a problem.

From Our Editors

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.”
