A 30A Institution in Grayton Beach
Locals and visitors alike flock to The Red Bar in Florida, a lively and dynamic bar and restaurant housed within what was once an old general store. The Red Bar also has the distinction of being one of the only spots in 30A that you can count on to be open late (at least by 30A terms), while most other restaurants and bars tend to wrap up shop a little early.
If you wait patiently, you’ll be rewarded with an excellent time, day or night, hanging out under the famous red lights that line the inside of The Red Bar and listening to the house band, The Red Bar Jazz Band. If you talk to anyone who has been to 30A and South Walton before, they’ll recommend stopping by The Red Bar at least once during your stay.
Lunch at The Red Bar in Grayton Beach includes classics like seafood gumbo, fried shrimp po’boys, burgers, grilled fish sandwiches, and even Belgian waffles, paired with cocktails like Bloody Marys and mimosas.
Dinner ranges from baked eggplant and manicotti stuffed with three types of cheese to sautéed shrimp and crawfish, pane chicken topped with a lemon caper butter, or fish topped with a citrus beurre blanc. The Red Bar is also famous for their crab cakes, which they even give out the recipe to make if you ask nicely. Pair your meal with a cocktail, glass of wine, or cold beer from the full bar.
The Red Bar in Florida is open daily for lunch from 11:00am to 3:00pm and for dinner from 5:00pm to 10:00pm, with the bar staying open from 11:00am to 11:00pm during the week and until 12:00am on Fridays and Saturdays.
