Superb food

The restaurant serves great food. It is not very large so make a reservation. Everyone in our group was pleased with their meal.

Seven of us enjoyed an excellent supper at Red Sky in Southwest Harbor. The restaurant is small but well-presented, though its low ceiling does mean that it can be noisy at peak times. The restaurant highlights local seafood and produce, and presents dishes very well, even if the menu may not be as adventurous as it might be. The wine... More

My girlfriend and I were there while staying a weekend to hike Acadia. The food was impeccable and the mix drinks were very well made. Don't let any of the prices scare you if you are budget conscious. The food is well worth the price and the portions are just right. If you are in the area, it's a must... More

We've had anniversary dinners here the last three years and other meals during summer visits. Nicely-prepared food, solid waitstaff, good selection of beverages in one of the most scenic sections of Maine. Reservations a must.

So glad we tried this local restaurant (hadn't been there under the present ownership) - what a great experience! Service was excellent and all the menu items we sampled were delicious. For appetizers we had a lamb taco and a salad with smoked duck breast, followed by swordfish with a coriander rub and scallops with a molasses-cumin glaze. Ingredients very... More

The food was wonderful and the atmosphere is romantic. This was a very nice restaurant to cap off a hard day's hiking at Acadia (after you've washed up of course :)

There's always a line and you always should book - Red Sky is a great little place - very tasty and fresh food with a good wine list.Sitting at the bar is the more casual way to go (first come, first served) with the whole menu available to you, or sit in the restaurant for a more formal setting.

I'm often skeptical of locally-sourced restaurants as they often fail to deliver on the promise of a distinctively better meal. However, Red Sky proved me wrong and I was more than happy to eat my words. Just be sure to get a reservation as there are a limited number of tables. The attention to detail in both the decor and...

The food was amazing. From the outside it doesn't look too exciting but inside it's beautiful with great art on the walls, a log fire and the best food I've tasted in ages. I'd always return to Red Sky

The drinks, Heirloom capreese, lobster cocktail, fried quail, and gingerbread were all fantastic. The duck breast was ok. Service was super - a well organized group effort. Reservations seemed to be a must.
