Their website says no reservations yet we get there on New Years eve and wait 45 mins after being told it would be 20 mins. We did not have RESERVATIONS. I had my 7 year old with me. We were then seated after a group of 4 that came in well after us. They were seated on the deck as were we. After about 10 mins and never seeing a waiter, I ask if anyone was serving our table at the bar. A few mins later some one was sent out. No menus, and we were told she would be back in a few mins. Never happened. Never got drinks. A gentleman sitting at the table next to us then said he was at the bar getting a drink and our server was discussing us with the bartendar and another server and to quote him "After hearing what they said I wouldnt drink or eat anything that they bring you" We left. So about 70 mins wasted. Never a drink and never a menu. Go to the bar across on the corner. Great service.

I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience. What time were you there? Red Bar has never taken reservations, so it is not uncommon to have to wait.

In terms of not receiving menus, they don't have typical menus -- their menu is a large chalkboard that the servers bring from table to table.

I hope you'll give it another try, maybe a little earlier in the evening and not on such a busy day -- their food is simple, but very good!

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN GOING TO THE RED BAR AND RESTAURANT SINCE 1988 AND IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GREAT EXPERIENCE. WAITING DURING BUSY HOURS IS PART OF THE FUN BECAUSE YOU GET TO WATCH PEOPLE, LISTEN TO LIVE MUSIC AND MEET PEOPLE.
FOR THOSE WHO COMPLAIN, YOU ARE MOST PROABLY DIFFICULT TO SERVE ANYWHERE YOU GO!
IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY AT THE RED BAR IN GRAYTON BEACH, FL., YOU WILL NOT BE HAPPY ANY WHERE!
TO ALL THE CREW AT THE RED BAR, "WE LOVE YOU AND WILL SEE YOU AGAIN THIS SUMMER ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN LATE MAY BEFORE MEMORIAL WEEKEND!
