Dont get me wrong, the food is good but not great. They make up for it on pricing. The atmosphere is great for a having a drink. The place is a must see if you make it there. Buy a TShirt, my favorite on 30A.

Loved the live music and friendly service. Very quick, but remember to bring cash. It was a good place for kids too.

The Red Bar is a classic. They don't take credit cards but will take a check. The food is very good - the crab cakes are the best. Always very busy, but fun and worth the wait.
