Delightful atmosphere and delicious food!

There aren't many dining choices in Southwest Harbor, but there needn't be! We loved the smoked salmon appetizer, lobster risotto, and crab cakes.

Red sky is a restaurant that people I know have been going to for years and they've always had good things to say. For our party of four on a Tuesday night the service was slow and inattentive, the risotto part of the lobster risotto was bland and undercooked and the creme brulee was served fully ice cold and soggy....

Food never came out after waiting two hours. Server was very apologetic. Owner didn't seem to care and was completely unapologetic. Waitress was sweet, but owner/manager seemed completely clueless to customers. I love writing glowing reviews and don't consider myself a needy customer. Writing a review like this is a first for me. I would never come back or reccomend... More

We had a delicious dinner at Red Sky last night. We made a reservation the previous day, showed up on time and were immediately shown to our table. The restaurant is attractive and quite busy - even on a Monday night. The wait staff were excellent - very attentive despite being very busy. If you like ginger, I recommend their... More

We had a great meal. One of the best restaurants on the island, definitely the best in Southwest Harbor. The staff recommend a great bottle of wine, which was reasonable priced. The staff was expectational. I would recommend making reservations.

Well-traveled friends who have lived in Southwest Harbor for many years recommended Red Sky as the best restaurant on the island so we had to try it. Our first meal was such a positive experience we went back a second time. Both times were excellent. Everything you would hope for in fine dining -- comfortable and cozy ambiance and first-class...

We thoroughly enjoyed a lobster risotto with grilled asparagus and plenty of fresh sautéed mushrooms. The fresh baked bread was great for sopping up every last delectable bite

My wife, daughter and I dined at Red Sky while vacationing in Southwest Harbor. It being the height of the tourist season, we had to reserve a table two days in advance in order to get the time we wanted, but it was well worth it. The restaurant has very pleasant, comfortable ambiance, and the attention from the staff, from... More

Love this restaurant, it's a comfortable space, lovely art work, attentive staff. However, do not order the lobster and risotto. I was extremely disappointed as it did not fit the menu description. The lobster was over cooked and tough that I should have asked for a steak knife to cut it. The claws were like erasers. The risotto amounted to... More

I'm in agreement with the July 14th "Overrated" review. We had pretty much the same experience. We were among the first to arrive, and were seated with about four or five other small parties. There were two servers and two backs, plenty of staff to work the five or six tables that were seated initially. We waited five minutes for... More
