    Red Bar is located in Grayton Beach which is a trendy little beach spot along 30A. The food is great here and the atmosphere is LOUD. If you're looking for a quieter spot with great food than try it's sister restaurant Louis Louis. Otherwise, come visit Red Bar, grab a drink, enjoy the music and locals, dance, order off a chalk board and don't forget CASH. ATM is located onsite, but may not be working. No credit cards accepted at this one!

    This restaurant offers lunch and dinner - limited menu but delicious. Be prepared to sit close to other diners. Also, very loud when live music is offered - but the music is good.

    A right of passage for anyone visiting the area. Great live music and a fun, bohemian sort of atmosphere.

    The Red Bar is a 30A institution. An ever-changing menu means a different experience every time you visit. This restaurant is perpetually packed, and with good reason! The atmosphere, food, music, and eclectic overall feel of the Red Bar make it one of the absolute musts in the area. Prepare to wait, but they'll give you a pager so you can stroll around the local shops and beach if you prefer!

    A favorite among locals and visitors, Picolos - The Red Bar is a must-do when in Grayton Beach!

    The Red Bar is the areas most popular indoor destination. Its the place for fun with friends and family while taking in all of the eclectic decor, listening to the great live Jazz Music and enjoying great food and cocktails.

    The simple but varied menu includes pasta with crawfish and shrimp, panne chicken and mashed potatoes, stuffed eggplant, crab cakes and fish of the day. Oh, and dont forget about the salad -- it is the best anywhere on the Emerald Coast!

    The Red Bar Jazz Band plays almost nightly. The party gets cranked up a notch after the dinner crowd thins creating a more funky atmosphere. Dont be surprised to spot celebrities here late at night. But please, everybody just wants to chill at The Red Bar.

    Located in Grayton Beach, Florida -- The Red Bar is just a short drive from Destin & Panama City Beach. Housed in the old General Store at 70 Hotz Avenue - Downtown Grayton Beach

    Try the crab cakes. Only served Friday & Saturday nights. Cash only but they do have an ATM on site. Get there early (they open at 5pm for dinner) or you'll have a wait.

    A locals favorite for over 40 years. This is what the old Florida coast looked like! Ask for the crab cakes for dinner, as they are not on the written menu. It is very crowded, so go early and plan to wait a few minutes. Live music in the evenings. Cash only, an ATM is on site.

    A must!! You haven't been to the beach unless you've visited The Red Bar. Think of this as a beach adventure. Everyone pack into one car (parking limited during the summer) and get ready for an enjoyable evening. This isn't the place for a hurried dinner! Remember, you are at the beach and enjoy the evening!

    Our time on 30 A is not completed without a visit to The Red Bar. Locals and tourists come for the amazing food, the music, the freindly staff, and The Red Bar 'ambience'. Expect a wait when you come...get a drink from the bar and ask the Bartender for for a cup of chex mix to tide you over!

    Great busy local place in the Grayton Beach community... Live musicians at night in a cozy atmosphere but a bit noisy... Wonderful crabcakes when on the menu along with other tasty dishes... Bring cash! No credit cards.

    A must see, with great atmosphere and fabulous food! Located only 250 yards from the house. Plan to arrive early (around 5 pm) or late (9 pm) during the spring and summer months, as there is always a crowd!

    The Red Bar is a long-time favorite. It's funky, eclectic atmosphere and live music make me feel right at home. We have had many a fun nights, both memorable and maybe not so memorable, in this place! Be prepared for a wait if you go during high season, but the food is great and service fast. Plenty of things to occupy your time while waiting too - good drinks, good shopping across the street (open late), great people watching.

    You will not find white linen tablecloths - but the food is great - very casual atmosphere - large portions - get there early or the wait will be over 60 minutes
