Wintzell's, a landmark on Dauphin Street for decades in Historic Mobile Alabama, is known far and wide for its "Oysters-fried, stewed, or nude." Wintzell's Oyster House was founded in 1938 as a 6-stool oyster bar by J. Oliver Wintzell. Through economic boom and bust Wintzell's has been continuously at its original location on Lower Dauphin Street. Although the family sold the restaurant in the 1970's, the original interior, with its walls covered with Oliver's homespun sayings, is still intact today. The thousands of signs also cover the interior of all current Wintzell's locations.
