“This seafood restaurant is fantastic, the owner Andy is a friend of mine. His wine cork fee lol was to sit down with you and enjoy a sip of your wine. The crab salad is amazing, if you see him tell him I sent you and he will take extra good care of you. The chowder is to die for and if your fishing on the river call ahead and he will lower down your food over the bridge with a fishing pole, for real ”
