“It’s just carrying on traditions over multiple generations. My son ate his first oyster at Hunt’s Oyster Bar. For me, the oysters bring back the nostalgic feelings because it reminds me of the areas that I grew up boating and snorkeling in. It’s the taste of the lifestyle of this area. Our local oysters are very salty, and when you eat it, it brings you back to those childhood memories.”
