Unfortunately, Wentzell's Oyster House in Orange Beach is permanently closed and no longer open for business. Very sad considering it use to be a great place to grab a bite to eat (especially for oysters).

We enjoyed our time at this restaurant. My daughter stayed busy feeding the fish and turtles swimming around in the water. Our food portions were enormous and everything tasted great! I'd recommend!

Food was delicious and hot. The grilled oysters in butter and cheese was to die for! Also, the platter of choose what you wish to eat, I selected fish and shrimp. Will return again.

This place stinks...literally. Bathrooms are dirty and restaurant isn't much cleaner. My husband and I visited for dinner and after sitting at the bar for 10 minutes we were never greeted or waited on. The locals hate this place. Literally...go ANYWHERE else.
