Description: Absolutely the best Fish & Chips in the area. Not greasy, but delicate and crispy fish and fries. We just ate there and I had to post this.

Friendly, reasonably priced, pool and darts = great dive bar. It was like the "Cheers" bar, after a few hours everyone was our friend.

We loved every bite of our burgers! The waitress was knowledgeable about the beverages and was able to suggest good stuff we really liked. They're always open!

The Pub is a place that's kids, dogs, and beach friendly. Don't come dressed to impress, it's only a streetfront bar with a bar menu. Fine dining it isn't but the service is friendly and the cooks laid back. Wings are very good for the money, about $8.00 for 10 done anyway you like. The blu cheese dressing is too thick for our taste. If you just want a place to hang out with truly local types and grab a cold drink and a quick snack, the Pub is OK.

Went on a Tuesday night and we walked right in and sat down. Ordered wings med. hot, boneless, skinless chicken strips, mahi-mahi sandwich, and a pasta dish. Server was pleasent and efficient. The wings were excellent as were the chicken strips. The blue cheese dressing was way too thick. You can't dip the wings in it becasue it is so chunky. You get one small container of ranch or blue cheese with 10 wings but I was not charged when I asked for an additional one (ranch). The pasta was well liked also. The Mahi-Mahi was just okay. Probably because Salmon was desired but they were out.

We tried to return on a Tuesday night Happy Hour for .35 cent wings but you better get there early. We showed up around 8 pm and there wasn't a seat in the house inside our out. It does appear to be a locals hangout to some extent as there are a few that are outside drinking and smoking all night long.

The Red Lion is located in Indian Rocks Beach, and really does have the taste and feel of a local beach bar. We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon, and by far the majority of the customers were locals and regulars. Ages ranged from early twenties to sixties - and everyone was welcome and seemed to interact. These are beach locals (nothing wrong with that!) so it did get a bit loud but nothing that would chase you away or make your visit uncomfortable.
The place is a little dated, and while not fancy by any means, the food and drinks were simple, fresh, and tasty.
The prices are very reasonable for the beach. Service was good - Danny at the bar was engaging and friendly, and the food order arrived quickly.
If you are vacationing in this area of the Gulf Coast, and you enjoy experiencing local places, I think Red Lion would work out fine.
