Wintzell's Oyster House: serving the freshest Gulf Coast seafood for over 75 years

About Wintzell’s

Wintzell’s Oyster House is a historic landmark on Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile, Alabama, a city that was established more than three hundred years ago.

The original Wintzell’s location has been open for over seventy five years and is known far and wide for our “Oysters-fried, stewed or nude.” Wintzell’s Oyster House was founded in 1938 by J. Oliver Wintzell and initially began as a small, six-stool oyster bar. Since then, the restaurant and brand have grown significantly. Though the Wintzell’s family sold the restaurant in the 1980s, the original décor, complete with walls covered in hundreds of J. Oliver Wintzell’s witty sayings, remains wholly intact.

Our goal is total guest satisfaction every day.

To achieve 100% guest satisfaction, Wintzell’s must serve the highest quality products and conduct our business in a manner whereby our greatest asset, our employees, exude a passion for Southern hospitality.  If we succeed in doing this daily, we will perpetuate the Wintzell’s legacy.  It is our commitment to this tradition and our employees’ dedication to our concept that has enabled our company to grow.
