My son and I were visiting Montgomery, and were near the River Walk. We turned the corner and discovered this restaurant! The shrimp and grits I ordered were absolutely delicious. And our server gave us extraordinary service! I am huge fan of the restaurant and have eaten at the one in Mobile as well. Highly recommend it! Great seafood!

Had dinner here on a busy night. I was seated quickly and promptly served. I found the fried shrimp platter very average. It was more than one person should eat. I have had better meals here including oysters on the 1/2 shell. Maybe it's just the fried food that seemed boring. Not bad but nothing special.

Within walking distance of several downtown hotels; great service and delicious seafood. Happy hour specials on weekdays - not sure about weekends. I always have raw oysters; half price during happy hour. Super salads. My favorite appetizer other than raw oysters is buffalo shrimp - yummy! Relaxed atmosphere - patio seating if you wish. Prices are very reasonable. Try it.... More

This restaurant was opposite our hotel and we ate here twice - always busy but the food was good, service efficient and not too pricey. Good barman - Randy.

Ate here after my husbands graduation from Maxwell AFB and we all loved it! If you like bloody marys..try 'the weekender' its one of the best bloody marys Ive ever had hands down!

We had lunch there and the food was okay. It can get loud with the TV's and the staff seemed to bus the tables with disregard for those still eating close by. Banging of dishes and silverware. They were setting up for a party of 30 while we were sitting , so maybe they were in a hurry.

15 of us for lunch! Terrific wait person, Kiyanna was friendly and efficient- took orders, served meals and gave separate checks in less than 1 hour! Good food- Enjoyed the fish tacos and collard greens. Others had shrimp, catch of the day, pasta etc- lots of choices. Reasonable lunch options!

I had my birthday dinner at Wintzell's. They accommodated my large group and were very friendly and helpful with making suggestions. I really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes with crawfish sauce. I'm definitely going back
