Good food, cute restaurant

We enjoyed the light and fit scallops over brown rice with a mango salsa. The scallops were cooked perfectly. My husband had the mahi tacos which were also excellent. Very reasonable prices for lunch. We will return again next year.

Three words: would eat again. And again, and again, and again. Just their house bread and artichoke dip alone is enough to die for! Delicious seafood.

Stop here for lunch. I was in the mood for scallops which happened not to be on the lunch menu that day. The chef whipped me up some anyway and they were amazing! Great place to stop and would highly recommend! !

During our week vacation (once a month) we have always included Red Sky on our agenda. Two times / weekly. Shrimp and Grits my wife had and I had Crab Cakes this last time. Always good - keep up the good work. Last week both times we visited - noticed you had different desserts. DESSERTS are TO DIE FOR: Vanilla... More

The was a great restaurant, we enjoyed our meal. First time having soft shelled crabs, I felt that these were as authentic as you can get. Also a huge selection of craft beers. Waiter was great, food came out fast.

This place was quite the surprise. Our seafood was outstanding. I had the Seafood Trio (shrimp, crab cake and flounder) along with the caprese salad--both of which were superb. Hubby had scallops with avocado cilantro dip and the Seafood soup--again both of which were home runs. Presentation was beautiful. The only negative was that the wine selection should have been...

Often our first stop in the obx. Definitely a great place for dinner. Amazing artichoke spread that comes with the bread at dinner. Avoid the crab cakes if your from Maryland but everything else has always been top notch. Great wit staff. Many of the other restaurants in duck are inconsistent in quality. Red sky is always a sure thing.

My first time at Red Sky since their remodel – they did a nice job and it looks wonderful. But onto the important; we received a warm welcome and happy greeting from General Manager Jennifer who presides over the restaurant with grace and aplomb. Jen introduced us to both the front- and back-of-house staff and I must point-out that every... More
