We stopped by while out on an afternoon bike ride at the Redbar. We sat at the bar and had a delicious Bloody Mary full of garnishment and flavor. Fish and chips that were good pieces of grouper and smoked tuna dip which had a good smoky flavor. Mike was our bartender sharing lots of good info about the area.

The most fun you'll have in Grayton Beach! It is a little off of the beaten path, but it is the coolest little beach bar ever. The food is great and the atmosphere amazing, but visit when there is live music and everything is even more fun. They do have multiple tv's is you visit during football season. Try the... More

Great bar scene and incredible atmosphere/ambiance. The perfect local place, with great music, great food, great service - thank you Johnny! Even the owner stopped by and said hello! Can't wait to go back here again!

This is a great little bar to relax and feel like a local. The location is easy access between Grayton and Seaside. It's tucked away in some trees so keep your eyes open or you will miss it. Bring cash as it is a cash only business

I took my family of five to the Red Bar for dinner. As expected, we walked into a very eclectic place with relatively loud music in the main dining room, where we were seated. The menu is very small, but this allows them to serve your food VERY quickly. We had a great meal that was reasonably priced for the... More

I was unimpressed with the Red Bar. We had heard great things and I don't think it stacked up. This is just an average bar, with average food.

It's just one of those places you "have" to go to. The good is good and the bar is great. Small bar, but very fun. Eclectic decor and locals mingled with tourist. Do it. Oh, I hope these 4 girls don't mind my putting their photo on this review. They were very fun and a good example of the patrons... More

Traveling to Destin and 30A for decades now I still feel Red Bar is a must. There is no other place to eat that comes close to the VALUE for the food the Red Bar provides. Some entrees are as low as $14 which can't get you a snow cone in Destin. The menu is always on a chalk board... More

This is a very popular place with a limited menu but the food is exceptional. Our table had the grouper over a grit cake, shrimp and crawfish pasta and stuffed eggplant and every dish was spectacular and delicious. The music got a little loud later and conversation was stifled. Still an enjoyable experience.
