Love this store!! It's one of the few locally owned music stores around that I know of and a must see while visiting the 30A area. I live a little over an hour from here but always make time to come here when I can. (especially now that my teenage son is starting to collect Vinyl) They have a great selection of Vinyl, CD's, T-Shirts, Record Players, Speakers and all kinds of cool stuff. The staff is always very helpful and knowledgeable of anything you ask them.

Saczynski Gallery

Saczynski Gallery, located in Grayton Beach, showcases mixed media art by 2013 South Walton Artist of the Year Andy Saczynski. Artist is available onsite to meet and discuss his work.

Reviewed By J-Schmidt47 - Destin, United States

My husband & I discovered Andy’s gallery in Grayton Beach about 6 years ago…it is an everchanging collection of funky, unique, dimensional, colorful pieces of art. We told ourselves back then that when we were able to purchase a beach home in Destin, having one of Andy’s pieces on our walls was a must! Supporting local artists and furnishing our home with local artwork was very important to us. Now fast-forward to owning our tiny Destin home, we are also proud owners of three original Andy Saczynski’s – the Western Lake Pines & Dunes painting which will always remind us of our favorite place Grayton Beach, “Oliver” a fun assemblage mask which hangs next to our wine rack & a vintage shoeshine stool which I commissioned Andy to paint for me similar to some furniture he has on display in his gallery (see photos). He gave me just what I wanted…a fun piece that makes me smile every time I prop my feet on it while reading in my favorite chair. Talking to Andy every time we visit is a treat…he is calm, quiet & down to earth, yet very enthusiastic about his work & always has a story to tell. His creations are not your average “beach art”, although some pieces do have a beach-feel…he has a very unique take on things that shows in his work…nothing but high quality. Andy’s wife, Lori, writes a blog on his website which is a good read…they have a life story to tell which hasn’t always been easy but really impresses me. So when you are traveling in the 30A area of Florida, be sure to visit this gallery, feast your eyes on his latest creations & chat a bit…I really wish I had more wallspace! ????

Excellent service! They provide drop off and pick up service. They are the only one that I found that rented mountain bikes ( more than 1 gear touring bike). When one of our bikes wasnt working very well they exchanged the bike same day! Steve gave us info on the local longleaf western greenway trail that can be picked up on Satinwood Dr. The trail was so wonderful. Bike rental worth every penny.

The Red Bar

Temporarily Closed due to fire incident

Reviewed By lizs455 - Biloxi, United States

We were anxious to get back after the fire and closure due to the virus and we weren’t disappointed. I ordered the grouper fish and it was fabulous. Stacked on a bed of sautéed spinach that was stacked on a grit cake made a tower of deliciousness. The salad was generous and tasty. My husband ordered the crawfish shrimp pasta and he loved it. We actually saved room for the key lime cheesecake. All thumbs up! Just go there and you’ll love it. Another thing I like is their menu is small which means to me fresh!
