Had once again another great dinner at the red bar! Go there as often as we can while vacationing in Destin. The atmosphere is fun and they usually have live entertainment!

Fun atmosphere with light live jazz music. We had drinks at reasonable prices. The smoked tuna dip was excellent. The stuffed eggplant was very good.

I went to this restaurant because it was talked up to me by some friends. I was disappointed. The food was average (and it was not warm when it arrived after a super long wait), the service was incredibly slow, and there was no concern...More

If you're looking for a place of interest at Grayton Beach, a small bar & grill offering a bit of "local" beach flavor, the Red Bar is the place. Parking is limited ... food menu is limited ... checks & AMEX are not accepted ......More

Went because we heard it was a must. Took the kids and had lunch there. Nothing special. The chalkboard menu is limited. My mahi-mahi sandwich was dry. It's a funky and fun atmosphere but the food was nothing special. Definitely more delicious options on 30A.

The Red Bar never lets us down. It is my family’s favorite restaurant along 30A, and a beach trip isn’t complete without at least one meal here.

We got here around 5pm or so which was early for us. The specials are reviewed from a chalk board and they did not disappoint. Plenty of food. The place itself was a little weird compared to the meal and the food presentation. Reasonably priced...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!
