I have to add this note of fear for all the seafood business's along the Gulf Shore. This terrible oil slick threatens to destroy the shorelines where so many of these creatures live.  We pray that the efforts of all involved will minimize the damage.

    A big Amen to that. My wife and I will be attending a wedding in Mobile in a few weeks and were looking forward to eating some wonderful fresh Gulf seafood. Now we don't even want to see what the beaches will look like. Aterrible tradgedy in so many, many ways.

      It was nice to read about the bad and good (mostly good) reviews on Wentzell's. I will definitely give it another try. It had been only open for a few weeks when we went so may be they didn't have their act together.

      Was in Panama City Beach, FL, week before last and had some great seafood. We ate at both touristy places (Margaritaville, The Treasure Ship, and Pineapple Willy's) and a few local places (Mike's Diner and a wonderful place called Salty Sally's).

        Wintzell's Oyster House (PENSACOLA)
        Is presently scheduled to open by the end of May in PNS.  In the meantime I will make it often to Jerry's Cajun Rest... North 9th Ave for some of the best around . I hope to take the pics and post something soon on Jerry's.

         
        I've had many fine meals at the Wintzell's in Fairhope. I didn't make it there in August because of time constraints (too many meals and not enough time!) but I hope to go back soon. They did have fresh oysters but charged a premium price for them. Sassy, it might be worth the drive some time to check out that location. It's on the way to the beach!
        oDey, looking forward to your write up on Jerry's. That was my last meal before I boarded the plane in PNS to come back to the Left Coast and it was awesome. I have a few pictures of it here:

        Jerry's will be my first stop when I get off the plane next time!

          I ate at the Huntsville location of Wintzell's over the weekend and it was not very good at all.  And I am a huge fan of the original Mobile location.

            I am very sorry to hear that BB. Another case of the Franchise not living up to the original location standard. I love the Mobile Wintzells as well.

                My wife and I also ate at the Huntsville Wentzells. It was terrible! I ordered the fried oysters. Being from Savannah, Ga., I am accustomed to great fried oysters and great seafood in general. These were very very small, way overbattered, overcooked, and not worth the  high price! The hushpuppies were also a disapointment. I will never eat the fried oysters there again,  but I may try the steamed oysters to see if they are any good. But, I will ask for a sample before I commit to a overpriced bill, again. I have done many oyster roasts and have been to many more, so I know a good steamed oyster. I wish I could get a good fresh party pack of oysters here in Huntsville at a reasonable price. I found Po-Boys on Andrew Jackson Way much better, when you can get in.

                  Have two Seafood markets close to you. Lash's will cook to order but mostly a market. I recommend to call ahead and see what stock they have, both places

                    Friday, for lunch, we visited our local fishmonger/restaurant and were informed he had scored a 30 lb black grouper at the Fulton fish market early that morning. So we had blackened grouper for lunch and it was terrific - tender, meaty, moist, and tasty. A far cry from what has, in recent years, been foisted upon us as grouper in some of the less ethical joints in the Tampa Bay area.
                     
                    Cheers, John

                      awts too bad for you buddy...
                       
                      But I have to agree with them, maybe it depends on the managing...franchiser should be advised to undergo for a training so that the name and credibility of the restau will not be destroyed.
                       
                      I've experienced the same problem in a few branches of my favorite restaurant, poor services the taste of their food is sooooo disappointed..
