We stayed in Southwest Harbor over the past week. Deciding to have a change from the seafood diet, we decided to go to the Red Sky restaurant. Some of our party does have strict medical dietary requirements. A phone call prior showed this establishment was more than able to cope with the "special" needs. The food was excellent. The group...

We originally planned on dining on a Tuesday evening but the restaurant called and said that since it was nearing the end of the season they would be closed and asked if we could manage another day. We were able to do by shifting a bit and upon arrival were asked if we were the ones who re-booked and when... More

My wife and I enjoyed a terrific night out at Red Sky. Our table was ready when we arrived, and the service was impeccable. Our meals were perfectly prepared, and we finished the night with cheese and wine. This could not have gone better, and we will definitely return.

We were pleasantly surprised by Red Sky! The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious! It's just the thing we needed on a Saturday night along with a lovely bottle of red! ;-)

On a recent trip to Southwest Harbor, my husband and I dined at Red Sky on four occasions. We actually cancelled a reservation so we could go back again! Every aspect of our meal was perfect. Wine or mixed drinks are great. A selected wine was featured each night. The appetizers and small plates were so delicious. The corn chowder... More

After a harrowing drive because of construction we finally arrived at Red Sky. The overall ambience was very American Bistro -ish. The food was just so ordinary. For the money we paid we expected, and should have gotten better prepared dishes.

On our first night in Southwest Harbor, my wife and I ate at the Red Sky. The service was excellent, and the food was wonderful. I had duck breast, and my wife had roasted scallops. I tasted the scallops, and they were delicious. The duck was beyond my expectations. I was the best I have ever had the pleasure of... More

So excited for our dinner at Red Sky on my birthday. Things began well, great corner table and gracious staff. The appetizer was served and the red cabbage slaw on the lamb taco was poorly seasoned and lacking the tang an effective dressing. We had not finished the appetizers when the second course <salad> was served. Apart from feeling a... More

So glad we made the trip from Bar Harbor for dinner at Red Sky. Creative preparations, fresh local ingredients, and great service. Favorite dishes/drinks include: Red Sky's homemade ginger-lime soda, lobster and mushroom risotto, the scallops, and gingerbread for dessert. Do note that eating at Red Sky will not be a quiet dinner - the restaurant is small and packed... More

The two of us shared the Blue Hill Bay mussels appetizer which was amazingly good. Wine list was good and reasonably priced. The house made bread was also excellent, but things went downhill after that. Still good but not worth the prices.
