We went to The Red Bar on a Sunday evening around 6 o’clock. Very short wait although the venue was quite full. Dinner menu is limited to about 5 offerings on a chalkboard, and they are not your usual bar fare. Stuffed eggplant, penne chicken,...More

Great place to drop in for a beer after a long bike ride! Back patio was protected from the wind so it was really nice.

We sat out on the deck and had a very good experience. The chicken panne sandwich is delicious, large and filling. We had a very nice Ukrainian waiter who was friendly and efficient. The experience was nice and I would recommend for lunch.

We had our usual, crab cakes and grilled grouper. Superb every time. Good service too. And they've started accepting credit cards! If we're within 50 miles of Grayton Beach and it's crab cake special on the menu, we'll be there.

On Sunday night they have a limited menu of about 6 entrees, a nice variety. Though packed, we were immediately seated at a table, had drinks in five minutes and our meals in fifteen or less. All the food was quite good.

For goodness sakes - these were THE best crab cakes I have ever eaten! All crab - no fillers. And what was that amazing salad dressing that came with our meal? So the meal was superior but just remember you are eating at a bar....More

Hey there! Earlier in the night its a big mix of people and families, but later in the night I'd say a younger crowd I used to hang at the bar there in my 20s...single women yes!
