We always enjoy eating at OOH. The salad bar is great. The oysters on the half shell are my favorite. A place with oyster in the name says it all. We've never picked a wrong choice--all good. The servers are friendly. Save room for the Key Line Pie!!!

The only thing good about this restaurant was the server. She was friendly and prompt. The food was so boring and bland. We started with fried pickles and crab claws but we got soggy pickles with too much breading and the very end of a crab toe- the pinky toe of the crab sitting in a bowl of butter cold... More

We had seafood baskets with oysters, fish and shrimp. The food was enjoyable, but the atmosphere was non-plus. Although our server was efficient and friendly, we watched another server sitting in a booth applying her makeup the whole time we were eating. The table we were seated at had crumbs scattered on the table. So, if cleanliness and tidy servers... More

My family decided to have their last dinner of the vacation at s seafood restaurant in Orange Beach, AL. There were six adults and four children. We ordered drinks and 4 appetizers, 2 for kids and two oyster sampler platters for the adults. One oyster platter came with the kids appetizers and we waited for the second oyster platter. After...

The meal started with a bug in my son's drink. 10 minutes later the waitress replaced it. We ordered a cup of gumbo and a salad which we assumed would be delivered before the main entree however it came after. My husband ordered a baked potato as a side dish we had to ask for it, it was not put... More

There are many great restaurants in Orange Beach and Perdido Key, but Wintzell's is a great oyster house that is a laid back, casual venue. While oysters vary by season, the late March visit was simply outstanding quality and size of oysters. Raw, steamed and char grilled - just outstanding.

Service was great, we asked upon arrival to sit outside to which they made arrangements. As the evening progressed our waiter offered for us to come inside as it was a bit chilly (we declined but appreciated the offer). The food was super nummy. Several of us had the jalapeño bacon wrapped shrimp (yum!) and the oysters were fresh and... More

Staff at the front were very friendly. Sat out on the patio. Unfortunately being so close to the highway, that was our view. Side tables would be better but they were taken. The Cream of Crab soup was a little salty but tasted amazing. Jerk chicken nachos were decent, they used think ruffles chips instead of nacho chips. Chargrilled oysters... More

We were tired of the long waits, so slid across (Phoenix West) to this place. Food was very good. Still surprised they won't mix shrimp and oysters on a poboy, but the food was full of flavor, and had large portions.
