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.

Great seafood and service while dining at Wintzell in Montgomery, AL. You can get the oysters prepared however you like them. Their menu give a large varity of choices of seafood. If in the area you must give them a try.

If you like fried food, this is the place. Problem is that it is difficult to taste the difference between the items. My guess is that everything is fried in the same fryer. But, everything is served hot and crisp. Service was good.

Excellent excellent food!!! We ordered the salmon salad, which was beautiful and very filling, but I'd wager everything on the menu is delicious!

Had late dinner here. Had char grilled oysters/ $20.00 a dozen but really good. Had stuffed flounder and it was a whole fish with bones. I like it this way. Very well prepared. Service was good and enjoyed reading the many quotes on the wall. I'll go here again!

Wintzell's in Montgomery is good, but service can be horrible at times. We have actually sat for 20 minutes and watched the waiters stand around in a lively conversation with much laughter and jiving around before a young lady, not involved In the "party" came to take our order and then scattered the group. Took an inordinate length of time... More

Stopped in for dinner and were immediately seated. Enjoyed the crisp, fresh fried tomatoes for an appetizer. I got the bacon wrapped scallops which were delicious with just the right amount of spice. The service was prompt and continuous without being intrusive. Would definitely eat there again!

I was not impressed, maybe because I am not an oyster fan. we had to wait for way to long, that probably didnt help either. Food was good, just the wait time could be better especially when you had reservations.

This seafood place is one of the best in the area. The seafood gumbo is to die for. The shrimp, fish and oysters are great. The menu has a variety of item. But the service is excellent. This place is always busy especially on weekends but the waiters/waiters are patient and helpful. I highly recommend this place.
