This is a gem. Staff are professional and accomondating . Food was delicious. Will defiantly be returning on next vacation here. Long weekend with the kids before our youngest goes traveling. The older one was late and they allowed them to order even though it was late. Highlights of the meal were the crab cakes, the chicken and the ribs.... More

I was looking forward to a great meal after hearing how fabulous Red Sky is. Worst salad ever... greens were not properly picked over. The dressing was bitter. My appetizer , lobster cocktail tasted like it had been sitting the fridge for several days and was tough. Too much money to spend on a terrible meal!

This is a lovely restaurant with truly decent food. We ate a lot of duck and lobster between salads and main courses and we liked them very well. Had an awesome martini made just the way I like it. It was pricey but the best food we had in Southwest Harbor shy of the eat in the rough Beals.

Each year my wife and I return to Red Sky and the food is consistently excellent. Their specialty drinks are creative. Their food is native. Their entrees are so good, you'll need to be resuscitated. Tip: Get there early and grab a seat at the bar or be sure to make a reservation.

The best part about our recent meal at Red Sky was the lamb taco appetizer--I think I could eat that every day and never tire of it! The other food was excellent too-- the lamb loin was tender, the lobster and risotto was tasty and had a beautiful presentation with the lobster shell cut in half and the meat still... More

We had a variety of appetizers and the duck main course and the chocolate pudding dessert. The food was well done and the environment allowed us to have an easy conversation.

The food is generally first rate, with an imaginative menu and fresh local ingredients capably prepared and artistically presented. The wine list is quite extensive. The ambiance is upscale casual, pleasant but nothing special. Service ranged inconsistently between grudging and gracious. Overall, we never felt entirely welcome. Prices are a bit on the high side, but not unreasonable considering that... More

We came for dinner around 9pm as we were told on the phone there should be free tables at that time. The hostess told us that there were no tables available and we should have our dinner at the bar. However as there were many free tables that had to be cleaned only we insisted to eat at a table... More
