Good selection of seafood. Busy location and popular with locals. Very casual. Live band at noon on a Sunday and they were very good. Fun place. Only take cash or checks, no cards.

We stopped in for lunch. Menu is written on a large chalk board which the server brings to the table and explains each dish. Menu contains a dozen or so items, mostly fish and seafood. We ordered burgers and fries. Portion size was generous. Burger was hot and fresh. Nice stop and nice lunch.

A big group of friends after a day of drinking on the beach, Red Bar was perfect for a rowdy crew - and wow were those crab cakes unbelievable! And the cat fish. My friends go to Red Bar every year they are at this beach and it was my first time - I see why it's a tradition!

This is a popular place even on Sunday before Thanksgiving. Menu is listed on a board. It didn't appear that appetizers were an option. Entrees are large and the food is fresh. It is good but not spectacular. Seafood menu items ran out by the time we arrived so plan to go early during busy times. The atmosphere is lively... More

The menu is limited and service is slow, but polite. The restaurant has poor acoustics to hear music. Overall a nice watering hole with some general character. Seems like a favorite of the locals. Good price.

Limited menu on chalkboard so it's fresh and good. Check their hours, break between lunch and dinner.

Love visiting Red Bar with friends for a night of local music or after the beach. They have fantastic cocktails and although a simple food menu, it never disappoints. The bar is casual and eclectic. They have a great back patio. Super friendly staff and great location!
