My husband and I had heard of Wintzell's but had never been. We both decided to order the fried platter. There was so much food on the plate! At most places, with a platter, you get maybe 2 shrimp, 2 scallops, a fish filet, and maybe a couple of oysters. Not here! There had to be 4-5 of each, as... More

Ate here 2 nights. I had a catfish poboy and a ribeye. Both were very good and the staff was exceptional. Prices were fair and reasonable. They do not take reservations but we had no problem being seated right away.

The waitress was new, but she found the answers when she didn't know them. Went during Happy Hour and got the raw oysters for 1/2 price! Delicious steak and whole flounder dinner!!

Visited for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Good lunch menu. Fried seafood platter was delicious, as was the grilled salmon. Had a dollar/beer lunch special so had to imbibe. Service was okay. Wait staff was polite but not very well informed about the beer selection. The waterside view is wonderful. It looks like you can moor a boat... More

My wife and I went there tonight. Good and service was great; I have eaten at two of the other locations and food has always been good. Tonight I have catch of the day (snapper) grilled; it was a little dry but the crawfish sauce served with it saved it. Had fried okra and cheese grits as sides. My wife... More

Great place to eat seafood! We love to eat on the screened porch whenever the weather cooperates and the bar area is frequently full. Wintzell's is located on Guntersville lake which hosts the Bassmaster and other local fishing tournaments and other water enthusiasts activities.

We had fried shrimp and my daughter asked for steam shrimp. They were heated without any seasoning at all. Oysters on half shell were large and good. We paid for the name not the food. $75 3 people and no alcohol.

Stopped in for dinner. The selection was heavily slatted toward oysters (duh), but had a good selection of other seafood and the nominal small amount of non-seafood items. I ordered the catfish with onion rings and steamed broccoli. The food came out quick and everything was piping hot. The catfish fillets were nicely breaded and very, very good. The onion... More
