Went with a few friends and our experience was a bit hit and miss. Some of the food was absolutely great and other food was okay. I'd say this is a good place to eat, but it certainly didn't knock my socks off.

Food was okay but tainted by the smell of cigarettes by a waiter who was more interested in his smoke breaks than in service. Long wait - repeatedly - for okay food.

This is the second time we've been to the Wintzell's in Guntersville. First time was a few years back and I vowed to never go back. Fast forward to now and I guess I just forgot how bad the food actually was. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 based purely on the service which was prompt and good.... More

Recommended by a friend from work and I'm so glad we went while visiting the lake. Selection was extensive and fresh, and prepared perfectly. We will be going back to the area soon and will certainly dine there again. It will definitely take several visits to read all the signs and placards on the walls!

The service was just okay, the food was average at best. The salad needed to be cut to eat it. The hush puppies were not nearly up to par for a restaurant that is suppose to be a specialty restaurant. The staff was friendly enough, this just isn't a place I would come back to a second time.

Great dining by Lake Guntersville - good food and great service. It was my first visit - and now I would like to eat there daily. There was light rain over the lake - and Lake Guntersville was ever so beautiful as we were leaving and spotted an awesome rainbow over the mountain seeming to end in the lake's edge... More

A friend and I were in a fishing tournament on Lake Guntersville and decided to try this place for lunch. We decided to split the oyster sampler and were very pleased with it. The beer was cold and the service was wonderful. We liked it so much in fact we went back for dinner. Again we split an order of... More

Restaurant was comfy, staff was friendly and the manager walked around to see how everyone's doing. After a long day of fishing we were hungry. I decided to get the seafood pasta thinking it would be a good portion, especially at the price they had it. I asked the waiter if it's a good size meal and he said ya... More

We enjoy Wentzel's and eat there fairly frequently. Unless you like oysters or shrimp, the menu leaves a little to be desired, but there are a few other choices. I like the salmon salad. We enjoy eating on the patio with the lake view weather permitting. This is a far cry from the original Wentzel's in Mobile. Don't expect a... More
