Ok so my husband and I love to eat raw oysters and he loves cold beer. Sometimes we just want to chill somewhere with alone as grown ups and eat good food. Found this gem at a friend's suggestion. We both agreed that the oysters were the best we had ever eaten anywhere in the world. Really fresh and ice... More

Decided that we had a need for oysters and our desire was fulfilled at Wintzell's Oyster house. These were probably so of the best oysters I have ever had. Beer was cold and the oysters were absolutely delicious. We dined on their deck and the weather was perfect. definitely the stop for oyster lovers when in Fairhope Alabama.

The sign at the street in front of Wintzell's said "Tuesdays, $5 Burgers and $2 Pints". We couldn't say no, and glad we didn't. The pace was pretty crowded for 6pm, looked like a lot of 60-somethings new a bargain when they saw one. In additions to the specials, my wife had greens and I the sweet potato fries. All... More

Friend and I attend a conference each March and always make a point to visit! Never had anything that wasn't delicious... especially the bread pudding!

The owner of Bay Breeze Bed & Breakfast recommended we walk across the street to Wintzel's Oyster Restaurant. She assured us we would enjoy it & she was right.....it did not disappoint! We walked over & sat on their nice deck amid the huge trees. We were promptly greeted by our waitress that exuded pure southern charm. We started off... More

We took a very large group to this restaurant for dinner. The servers were very organized and quite a few separate checks didn't bother them. They had a room large enough for our group (approx. 35 people). Food was delicious. Extensive menu for even the pickiest eaters. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!

We had a nice dinner here. The food was very good, and the location near the bay is pleasant. The service was friendly and competent. The place is completely lacking in pretension, and people requiring that would be disappointed. We found the often politically incorrect sayings on the walls amusing and even refreshing, but hypersensitive snowflakes might come down with... More

This is our first visit to Fairhope and we decided to try Wintzell's. I will admit that I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews but the place was not busy for a Friday night and we were seated right away. The decor was fine and comfortable. The waitress was very friendly and took our drink order... More
