This restaurant was located right by the hotel I stayed in so I ate here a couple of times. The food was great! It's definitely worth trying while in Alabama!

We visited Montgomery from London for a wedding and decided to have lunch at Wintzell's and it did not disappoint! The food was really delicious and reasonably priced for the quality and the quantity. I'd recommend the oyster sampler. Harrison (our waiter) was also great and made our dining experience even better. Make time to visit!

Our dozen oysters on the half-shell were fresh and tasty. Big and juicy, and served nice and cold. We also tried the sampler oyster platter, and they were also very good. This place is a great downtown treat.

Had two dozen chargrilled oysters and they were the best I've had! They have a full service bar with plenty of tasty brews on tap. A large menu with just about any type of oyster or sea food you'd like. Right in down town Montgomery and close to Maxwell AFB. Oh, and don't forget to have the bread pudding for... More

Let me get the positives out of the way, before mentioning the reason behind an "average" rating. The staff was extremely nice and so was the environment. And now the part that will prevent me from going back. The fried pickles were overly salty (I've had a lot of fried pickles in my life). My wife's bacon wrapped shrimp were... More

Been there several times and always love the fried shrimp. Nice crust and juicy shrimp are the real deal, not some of the heavily crusted tasteless stuff others try to pawn off as fried shrimp. Always great!!

This is ok. The Friday night fish fry special was great as was the bacon wrapped shrimp. Po' boys were ok but the habanero shrimp was a little skimpy. We looked for hush puppies and didn't see them but they appeared on the fish platter. Grilled oysters had a lot going on and were a tiny bit gritty.
