“Best fish on the beach”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I tried to buy some Grouper and cook it on the grill at my hotel. It had absolutely no taste. I heard good things about Red Bar and so I decided to try their Grouper. They were serving it over some hominy cakes or something, which sounded interesting. It was AMAZING. I routinely cook and eat fresh sockeye salmon, so I am a tough customer when it comes to fish, but Red Bar did it right. It was melt-in-your-mouth done with a zesty flavor that wasn't too bold. They also give you just the right amount of food with a leafy salad right on the plate. And it wasn't any more expensive than anywhere else on the beach. Add good service and live music and you've got a 10. Note: Red Bar is local color. Be prepared for a fun environment and exquisite cuisine.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

If your going for atmosphere this is your place. Perhaps not my favorite restaurant on 30A but is always a fun place to watch the game or enjoy live music. Don't forget your check or cash because no credit cards accepted here.

“my number place to eat!!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I have been eating at the RED BAR for many years and have always had the best food, music, great staff to go along with a great environment. The place is just great. If you do not go to the RED BAR you are missing a treat if you are close to Grayton Beach.

“Unique Restaurant”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We ate at the Red Bar for lunch. Food and service were good. The cost was reasonable for this area. Don't let the trademark run-down appearance of the outside fool you. It is a very professionally run establishment. You will enjoy all the paraphernalia hanging on the inside walls. The restaurant doubles as a sports bar and has scheduled live entertainment.
