    Great service, great food, amazing music

    Smoked tuna dip is really good! Tastes like summer sausage. Mudslides are pretty good too, but could use ice cream in it to thicken it & add more flavor.

    If you're droving down the 30A, the red bar is a must. Very loud, fun crowed. Bring cash or check because you won't get far with a credit card! Awesome food, awesome atmosphere.

    Start with a Texas patron margarita and some smoked tuna dip and then nicely ask for a blackened mahi salad and if u have room finish it w a piece if key lime pie. It's heaven on earth!

    Don't be in a hurry and prepare to lose all sense of personal space. Terrible first impression.

    Most amazing place on the Emerald Coast!!! Be sure to try the smoked tuna dip/salad, it is by far superior than any other!!!

    Limited parking. Plan on waiting or come early. It is worth the wait.

    David Holland · August 28, 2013

    Good food...too bad the staff is less than honest...don't leave anything on accident and expect them to turn it in. Have been there many times but now I will never go back.

    Michele Hahn · August 11, 2013
  • Danny C.

    The grouper was pretty solid, grits was a great pairing

    I've loved it for years. Some of the best food I've had. BUT, the rude and crude customers have changed it. Previous post saying "Dis place is da tits" sums them up. We won't be back.

    You haven't seen Destin or Grayton Beach till you''ve been to The Red Bar- -pee before you get here.

    This place is packed on a Friday night. fyi take-out pick up is at the cashiers podium just to the right of the hostess, not the bar. Navigating your way around that place is a deafening nightmare.

  • Mary Ruth J.

    Hands down best food I've had in a long time!! It is a total dive bar but then you taste this wonderful food! Drinks awesome.... Jazz band was the icing on the cake!!

    Waited 2 hours for table.. Our buzzer went off only to find out the hostess wrote down incorrect number in party. Buzzer went off again but our table wasn't available. We finally ate outside.
