I decided to check out Wintzell's because it was convenient to the Renaissance hotel. Funky and fun atmosphere, fair prices, interesting but not exotic southern sea food choices -- I had the fried catfish, and it was light and delicious. Dessert cobbler was terrific. Service was a little slow in coming, but I received a multitude of apologies (there was... More

We went for lunch and it seemed that everything was a bit oily. You could only take a couple of bites before feeling queasy. In their defense, we did order fish and chips but it just seemed really oily like the oil wasn't properly drained. You can sit outside at this establishment and there was no wait.

We usually eat dinner but stopped in for lunch. They had several lunch specials that were reasonably priced. The shrimp and grits were a smaller version than dinner at a lower price but just as good without feeling completely stuffed. The service was fast and friendly.

Matt and his staff make you feel at home. Kiyanna waited on us two nights in a row. She remembered our drink order from the first visit and had them on our table as we were seated. Very impressive service at any price point!!! Yummy Fresh Seafood. Hot dishes came out very hot and tasty. Delish oysters on the half!... More

From appearance from front it looks nice but you walk in and you feel you are in a hooters. The service was only fair and the oysters were not up to par. I will not go back. Not a great experience.

For anyone who loves oysters this is a fantastic place to eat. I had the char grilled, fried and oysters Rockefeller and they were all great. The service was excellent too.

Ordered shrimp and grits. Brought out a meal with tiny baby shrimp - not the quality of meal I expected. Very disappointed.

Went here late one evening with my sister-in-law after a night on the town. Had some good cocktails and a seafood platter. The food was ok - a little too oily, but better than many other places. I would go back again.

I can't speak for the rest of the food because I only ordered the cream of crab and seafood gumbo at the bar. But it was excellent and the service was prompt and friendly too.
