My husband and I went here on our last night in town. Although the decor is nice and I was grateful that the a/c was mighty cold on a pretty hot summer day, the crab cakes were a bit of a disappointment. I expected more...More

We go every time we pass through Guntersville! How they get such fresh seafood so far inland I couldn't say but it is FRESH. The prices are quite reasonable. Love the oysters anyway the are prepared.

I had fried shrimp. Very good. Large portion. Might want to go for basket if you are not hungry. Others in my party enjoyed the oysters, boiled shrimp appetizer, and fried fish. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

We have been going to our local Guntersville Wintzell's Oyster House since they first opened. The staff are friendly and well trained. The restaurant sits on Lake Guntersville and is assessable by small boat and naturally also by land. In addition to the air-conditioned restaurant...More

We visited twice last summer. Service was extremely slow both visits even though the place was near empty on our final weeknight visit. The food was mediocre at best. Everyone did enjoy the crab legs though.

Predictably good. We eat there often. Great outdoor area if the weather is cooperative. They know how to do southern fried seafood. Oysters and shrimp are delicious. Cheese grits a nice accompaniment!

We went a bit wayward on our way home, but found this gem! We frequented Wintzell's in Orange Beach (now closed) and ecstatic to find in Guntersville. Happy hour (3-6pm) is worth the trek!! We had half-price oysters in the half shell, draft Yuengling beers,...More
