What a terrific restaurant! Food, cocktail, and wine prices are reasonable for a resort area and the service was outstanding. We were a party of four and had called ahead to put our name on the waiting list for 7pm-ish. We walked in and were seated promptly. The ribs are absolutely the best! Others in our party had the roasted... More

I have tried countless times trying to come to Red Sky. I have heard wonderful things. But unfortunately even though the times say they should be open. The door is locked. I will keep trying.

Red Sky happily accommodated our last minute reservation for 6 plus a baby and we're so happy they did. The restaurant is quaint, the menu is amazing and the staff were super friendly! One of the members in our party asked the manager about a certain appetizer on the menu (he didn't order it but saw another table that had... More

A great find we stopped into after being told a 1.5 hour wait at another nearby eatery. They were busy, had some of the best meals but was a bit on the pricey side. The interior does not match the price for the meals but the quality of the food is outstanding. Nice not to have a wait. One negative... More

Compared to the multitude of restaurants at the OBX, Red Sky is a great value. The shrimp and grits are outstanding and today the fish tacos had mahi mahi very well cooked and presented. We had lunch at 2:00 so there was not much of a crowd. Pleasant and prompt service. Kids meals were a little pricey but since I... More

Friends had recommended the Red Sky Cafe to us before but we never had the opportunity to go until last week. We were out and about in Duck with another couple and we decided to have a late lunch at the Red Sky Cafe. We were greeted warmly and were given a booth table in front of the kitchen. The... More

Dark and a little dreary, but not bad . . . The red-neck risotto (grits and cheese) was a pleasant surprise, but other than that, it was not that memorable.

Made a reservation for 15. The Service was excellent for this large a group. Food was hot, very tasty and delivered to the table in a very timely manner. Enjoyed the atmosphere. We will eat there again when in the Outer Banks!

We had lunch on the Friday of our vacation because there really wasn't anything worth eating in the fridge! We have eaten dinner at Red Sky many times but had not had lunch there since 2004. My wife loved the Chicken BLT - the Gobbler was very tasty - the cheese quesadilla was good but my daughter would have preferred... More

My (extended) family and some friends had dinner at the Red Sky while we were vacationing in the area. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and I was happy to try this place after having it on my 'to dine' list for a few years. We had a large party and were seated close to the bar area. We...
