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.

We sat on the patio, inside was too loud. Our waiter was Ivon, an eastern European, probably a student; and he made the visit. The food was very good, large portions and on the pricey side. We had gone for the crab cakes, but they are only served Friday and Saturday. There is little variety, only about 6-8 items, which... More

I don't know the history of this bar, but it looks like it has been here since as long as we have had dirt. And I mean this in a good way. This is a bar bar beach bar. It's located in Grayton Beach sort of off the beaten track from all the glitz and glammer you now find around... More

Love coming here and sitting on the back patio for cocktails and appetizers! The drinks are strong and the food is good! The bartenders and server staff are friendly. I love that you can walk in after the beach and don't have to worry about feeling underdressed in your t-shirt, shorts and flip flops. They have a lot of live... More
