I have been to the Red Bar many times but, in my opinion, it is one of those places you just have to bring "first visitors/newbies" when they visit 30A for the first time. This past weekend I had a friend visiting from North Carolina...More

I`m probably the only person who has never been here, so hubby & I decided to try it. We arrived for dinner at 4:45 on Saturday. They don`t start seating you until 5:00. The waiter arrives at your table with a chalk board with 6...More

I’ve been told it’s the type of place you have to go to at least once if you’re in the panhandle. I can honestly say the decor was wild and crazy and made me a bit unsettled but the food was excellent. Very limited menu-...More
