This was some of the best seafood I have ever put in my mouth. Gourmet level food. A large variety of foods. Want break the budget, but maybe if you are on a per diem, but it is a must go in you are staying down town at one of their find hotels.

During the conference this year we gave Wintzell's two dinners and left both thinking average. The service was so-so and not interested in the customer. There was no evening rush as their had been a year ago and think it starts with the service making a good meal average. I had the gumbo one night the the Low Country Boil... More

Enjoyable restaurant in Montgomery, AL. When it is cooler weather, it is nice to sit outside at this place. Good food and nice atmosphere.

Nice place to get some seafood. We had fish, shrimp and salads and all enjoyed their meals. It is downtown so easy to walk to events in town.

I have eaten there a couple of times. I lived in Mobile, where it originated . For some reason this is not the same, It isn't a bad or sub par, it just does not impress me. I would rather go to Red Lobster, or BoneFish.

My husband and I went here to eat in a covered area outside due to imminent rain and we had our dog. Quite surprisingly we had great service and really good meals. I had bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp that was cooked just right and had a sliver of jalapeño - delicious. I usually don't eat fried food but had to try... More

We sort of found this place by accident while walking around the downtown area. Pleasant surprise. We ordered the "Oyster Combination" and found it very good. Found service to be a bit slow but the food is great. We sat outside and I think our waitress may have been a bit overwhelmed as she had tables inside as well.

The service was much better this time, we had a young lady (Crystal) that was much better then the last time we were in just a few weeks earlier, Can't say the food was any better,... More

We were surprised with the relaxed atmosphere. It is just outside of the Renanisance Hotel, therefore I thought it would be more formal. We enjoyed the relaxing dining experience. The food was very good. The one thing was at times we could not connect with our server. Once she gets to your table she was really helpful. It was just... More
