One of a kind restaurant. Long, long history in Mobile. The one downtown is the original and always has the best food. Service is usually good, according to who is waiting on you. Either way don't be in a hurry and browse the 100's of signs, which are the original owners quips.

Few places finer to eat raw oysters and drink cold beer than at the Wintzell's oyster bar on Dauphin Street.

Great food, nice, casual atmosphere. had Oysters Rockefeller, fabulous, hubby had the seafood platter, also great. Drinks are cheap, servers are awesome, I would recommend to any and all. Many seafood places in the south seem to be all about breeding and deep fat frying. It was nice to be able to get your fish broiled.
