This place has a very limited menu. Mostly different types of oysters. Not much more to chose from. I ordered a platter wit fish, oysters, shrimp, fries. It was 25.00. So its pricey also. But it was enough to share with spouse.

The shrimp po'boy sandwich has nearly a pound of shrimp on it...you have to remove some just to be able to hold and eat it. Salads are always fresh. Reading all the quips on the walls always stops conversation during the meal.

Have made a point of stopping in Saraland to visit Wintzells for the last seven years.

Good oysters. Expensive? Yes, but well prepared. $24 for 16 on the half shell. Gumbo is good. Tea is good. Service is good.
