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...

I took my mum for lunch here and we both really enjoyed the food. I had the fish tacos and she had a ham and tomato (with pesto) sandwich. Both dishes were good and our waiter, a young guy, was very friendly and pleasant. My only complaint was that we were sat at the front window and there were quite... More

We went here on our first night in OBX on the recommendation of my in-laws who had eaten there a couple of nights before. It says a lot when someone wants to dine at the same place again so quickly. We were not disappointed. We called ahead to get put on the "hold" list (reservation system is a little different).... More

If you are a foodie and don't mind dinner without a view this is the place. We ate at several of the nicer restaurants in duck and in my opinion this was the best. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The wait staff is relaxed yet very professional. We discovered this gem the first night we were in town and... More

Attempted to eat here with my family on our last night in duck. Was not our first pick but when we called to check on the wait, the hostess said she had no wait and would take our name. As we arrived no more than 10 min later she said it would be about 15 min. We had no issue... More

The Red Sky Cafe is not to be missed when dining out in the OBX-the food is fresh, local and can be prepared to meet many food restrictions. The chef, Wes Stepp, and his staff are attentive, efficient and friendly in their approach and dedication toward being one of the best restaurants in the OBX. The food scene in the... More

The only reason I don't give Red Sky Cafe 5 stars is the outrageous prices AND quality of the adult beverages. More on that later. We had dinner there on a busy Thursday night after a very strange concert in Duck Town Park. Anyway, I had the crab cakes and my wife had the rigatoni. Both were excellent. My crab... More
