“One of my favorite "guilty pleasures." Frady's is just a "joint" or "hole in th wall." Attracts lots of colorful local characters, and the same family has been running it forever. Great place to get a poboy. Just a few sidewalk tables for dining. ”

Wine Shop

“They have a great selection of alcohol and wines. They have high end stuff and more budget friendly bottles as well. The staff is helpful, especially in the champagne department. This is if you would like to have some drinks at home. There is a place to eat, but I havent had lunch there, but it gets busy so my guess is that its good. They close early, so check their hours.”
