We had lunch today. Our first trip to Wintzell's Ouster House. It was awesome food and great service. Mike was our server and he was attentive and just an all around happy guy! We can't wait till our next trip back to Mobile. Wintzell's will be the first place we visit.

The gumbo is fantastic! The Redfish was also very good. Friendly service. This place was worth the walk from downtown. Recommended!

I eat at the Saraland, AL restaurant. They always have delicious oysters on the half shell. All the food is delicious and I love the signs on the wall.

A great place to eat fresh oysters prepared many ways plus assorted other seafood. Service was great and the raw Gulf oysters were excellent. I also ate the seafood platter with shrimp, fish, scallops, oysters, and stuffed crab. It was more than I could eat and tasted wonderful.

Great fast service ask for Matt. The bacon wrapped shrimp, crab claws and boiled shrimp was awesome. Would highly recommend eating here but go early to avoid the crowds.
