There was 4 in our party, two of us had shrimp wrapped in bacon with jalapeños, this was delicious, would definitely order it again. Another one had the fried oyster salad it was good and another had raw oysters and loved them. Erica was our server and she did an amazing job.

This was one of the best meals we experienced in Orange Beach. The service was very prompt and a great place to take kids as well.

We were a little put off by the "decor" - hundreds of little one-liners posted all over the restaurant. Some of them were mildly amusing, others didn't even make sense. It was very crowded but we were still seated and served promptly. My crab cakes were spicy hot to the point where I couldn't finish them because my mouth was... More

We've visited two Winzell's - Fairhope and Orange Beach. Both have been great meals for good value. The happy hour half price oysters can't be beat. $5 burgers on Tuesdays are fantastic and the $2 fish tacos on Wednesdays are super yummy. The burgers are some of the best we've had around for the value. Wait staff are always pleasant

My husband and I were in Orange Beach 6 years ago and remembered this place fondly, so it was the first restaurant on the list to visit when we returned. When we arrived we were told we had to wait 15 minutes even though we could see many empty tables. Were they short- staffed? When we finally went to our... More

We went for Happy Hour (which lasted until 7pm) and had a couple of dozen raw oysters and the smoked tuna dip. The oysters were great, especially with their house-brand hot sauce. We also enjoyed the tuna dip which was flavorful and well presented. Besides the food, the service was excellent!! We'll be back to explore some of the other... More
