“Didn't live up to the hype”

This was our first time eating here. There were nine in our party. We were seated pretty quickly for a large group at the peak of dinner time. Parking is insane, be prepared to hike it. Limited menu, which we knew ahead of time, but just didn't live up to all the hype. We went for the crab cakes, but they were so full of shell that they were not enjoyable. The chicken pane' was good though. Probably won't go to all the hassle to go back.

It's a bar - but a classic. It's rustic, so don't come expecting granite floors and crystal glasses. It's a bar / restaurant with what I would call bar-type food. Live music at the right time. Grayton Beach just around the corner from here.

I am not at all certain how Red Bar got its name but in these neck of the woods it is not uncommon to see folks sporting a sunburn red and toasty‼️ Located very close to Panama City Beach and Destin on the famous 30a ~ and btw Grayton Beach was happening before 30a made it on the map . We love to go here for lunch ~ we sit outside and enjoy the vibes of Red Bar and Grayton Beach. It has a great inside as well I am going to give our female server yesterday a shout out ~ she was attentive, kind, knowledgeable, and hustled ~ small and cute with a beautiful smile we had the smoked tuna dip salad and gumbo ~ both were delicious we washed it down with a cold beer a Red Stripe no less ~ you can't go wrong with any choice ~ Po Boys ~ Fish Sandwich ~ Cheeseburger ~ at dinner time I recommend the Panne Chicken. Full bar as well The color red increases enthusiasm and stimulates energy ~ Red Bar is all of that and more‼️

I always take out of town guests here and they love it. Good food, service, and entertainment. Go early on weekends B/C they get busy.

The Red Bar is a must when visiting the 30A area! Food was awesome! Blackened grouper and grit cake were one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten! The server told the 16 year old "picky" eater "if you don't like the grouper I will bring you something else free of charge. ". He loved the grouper! The house salad dressing is so good! Great atmosphere, awesome service, delicious food!
