The fried oysters were awesome. After being disappointed a few times by other places, this was a wonderful treat...they were not over fried or lost in the batter. The scallops had a nice flavor.

Dreadful experience: blaring music, lousy food, poor service (waitress delivered our meals and we never saw her again, finally went to front desk and asked them to find her and ask her for our bill. I cannot imagine how a menu can say "lump crab cake" when it's only shredded stuff, "breading" on sea food most resembled concrete, never given any bread or rolls, scallops so overcooked that they were not even near the shape of the concrete covering, having shrunk and turned rubberlike. Shrimp ok, except for concrete covering. Onion rings cold and barely recognizable as containing onions under concrete. Only good thing about the entire experience was the coleslaw!!

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 and beyond—by bringing the tastes and flavors of the Gulf Coast to Pittsburgh.

The menu boasts various fresh Gulf seafood including mussels, clams, shrimp, and its famous oysters. Diners can opt for non-seafood options such as USDA-certified steaks, pasta, and PoBoy sandwiches, or "hoagies" to northerners.

Customers can also visit the cigar bar to watch games on 65" TVs while munching on items from the full menu and sipping one of the many scotch, whisky, and bourbon selections. Visitors can also choose a premium cigar from the humidor or bring their own. The restaurant and cigar bar open daily at 11 a.m.
