We stopped in for lunch and found this location to be every bit as good as the original in downtown, but no wait and a lot quieter. The catfish, shrimp and fish tacos were all good. The chips and fries tasty as well.

Friend pickles were good but a little salty. $5 burgers on Tuesday's but they are just ok. Went back for a steak with fries and fries seem old and they only give you like 10. Our waitress the first time was great but second time was terrible. Waiting on drinks and food for so long and she kept forgetting things.

My wife and I had lunch here on Christmas eve. Food was excellent. She had the fried oysters and they where lightly coated and very tasty and I had the redfish bienville which had a large piece of blackened redfish over cajun rice with shrimp and bienville, very good! Will come back here next time we are in the area.

If you need a place to rest and enjoy casual seafood don't miss Wintzell"s. The food is fresh and well prepared. You can enjoy the outside eating if the weather is good.

Drove from Gulf Shores area to do some sightseeing and asked a local about where to eat. Wintzell's was the recommendation so we tried it. The food was OK and service was relatively slow. Shrimp and fish entrees were typical fried fare, nothing to get excited about. It took quite a while for us to get our check and pay.... More

We received good service in a pleasant atmosphere, however the food was only average for similar restaurants in this area.

We ate dinner here our first evening in Fair Hope, and it was great. Truly a local's place. Warm, friendly, welcoming, and really good food. Would return if in the area again.

Arrived early around 6:00 pm on a Friday in late October and the restaurant was only about 1/4 full. Therefore, the service was very fast and friendly. The boiled shrimp appetizer was excellent, the red snapper special entrée was good but not exceptional (drenched in craw fish sauce.) Will return on next visit to Grand Hotel.
