I work downtown and have eaten her a couple of times and was never disappointed until I had the very small portion of the lunch shrimp and gritz!!! This was just not fair because it tasted sooo good! I have also had the bread pudding and I must say I am not a fan of bread pudding but this was... More

If you ever get a chance to go Wintzell's in Alabama, you must try the shrimp and grits. It is definitely an experience you won't regret. I personally love shrimp and I love grits, so maybe I am a bit biased, but Wintzell's had some of the best I have ever had at a restaurant. We were in Montgomery this... More

Wintzell's has a good menu--never had anything bad... fish tacos and buffalo shrimp are my favorites! Their oysters are great too! Decent craft beer selection. They treat military very well! Always a good experience!

Love the fact that the seating isn't tight. My husband ( who isn't and big seafood eater) actually enjoyed the food.

I enjoy eating here... I usually go to the one in Louisiana. However, this is a must place for seafood. Great food and friendly service.

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
