We had a wonderful experience at Wintzell's. Although they don't take reservations, they were able to accommodate a party of 11. I didn't hear one negative comment about food from the group- oysters were fabulous and portions were generous. Service was excellent.

I believe happy hour is from 4-6 or 7. We were there earlier in the day for lunch and was pleasantly surprised.
