30A Q&A: Where Do the Locals Really Hang Out?

George Barnes
Co-Founder 30A Coastal Dunes Wine Company and General Manager of Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar

1. What makes living at the beach so special?

I’ve been a local since 1995. The natural beauty of this area is what keeps me smiling every day, and the local community that always rallies together for great causes.

2. Three favorite local spots?

Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar, Borago and Modica Market. You can’t go wrong with these three!

3. Best place for a night out?

I think this is a three-way tie between Cuvee 30A, Pescado Rooftop Bar, and Cafe 30A

4. Most delicious menu item?

At Shunk Gulley, Chef Tyler’s Summer Snapper with Succotash is my favorite for sure.

5. What do you do in your free time?

Love to spend a day on Grayton Beach with Gayle and good friends with the YOLO board and fishing pole nearby. It’s the best!
