Established in 1938 by J. Oliver Wintzell, Wintzell’s Oyster House originated as a six-stool oyster bar in Mobile, Alabama, a city with a rich history spanning over three centuries. Recently commemorating its 80th anniversary, the flagship Dauphin Street location is renowned for its "oysters — fried, stewed, or nude." Despite the restaurant's expansion from the Gulf Coast to central and northern Alabama, maintaining its original charm, the Wintzell’s family having sold the establishment in the 1980s. Adorned with thousands of the founder’s whimsical sayings, the décor preserves a casual, lively, and distinctly southern atmosphere, inviting patrons to relish the coastal spirit.
