After a day of hiking, kayaking and/ or bicycling in beautiful, serene Acadia, we were looking forward to drying up, dressing up and feasting on great food away from the tourist crowds at Bar Harbor. We found the perfect restaurant in the Southeast Harbor: Red Sky. Reservation necessary but we called in the morning and were accommodated for 8PM. This... More

We went to Red Sky to celebrate my birthday, and we could not have chosen a better place. The ambiance is muted and classic without being either stuffy or formal. The food is perfectly cooked, and beautifully plated. They have a wonderful wine list, and make sure to save room for dessert - they excel there as well. While a... More

My meal was very, very good but my wife's was not good: undercooked fish, no flavor. While it was taken off the check, it was very surprising.

Only had one night for dinner without kids so had to make the most of it. Red Sky was a home run. Great grilled polenta app and lobster mushroom risotto were standouts. Warm, fun atmosphere and a waitress we wanted to pull up a chair (thank you Dream Jeanie 😃).

Three local friends out to eat on a Thursday evening... attempting to try a variety of the great restaurants on Mount Desert Island throughout the summer. Unfortunately this establishment did not live up to the hype! We each ordered different dishes including Ribeye, Lobster Risotto, Crab Cakes, Lobster Cocktail, Quail, and Creme Brulee. The lobster cocktail left an aftertaste ...... More

During our past visits we had a memorable meal at Red Sky. This year we were so disappointed in the food. The Cesar salad was average . The bread was terrific. My fluke was just ok and it was served with tasteless COLD (on purpose.) cauliflower. The ribs were good but nothing special. The staff were polite but not very... More

This restaurant was recommended to me when I made plans to go to Mt. Desert Island. The location is 1/2 block just off the main center of Southwest Harbor. I would strongly suggest one explore the other towns (Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor etc.) beyond Bar Harbor. The feeling is fairly intimate; nice windows letting in light from the front. Food...

Everything we had here was excellent. The lobster risotto was both beautiful and tasty. The ratio of crispy polenta to mushrooms and greens was off-it needed more polenta and to be crispier. The ribeye was excellent-it had a nice sear. The sole was fresh, buttery, and tasty. We want to go back to try a couple more entrees. Reservations are... More

Last year we had a reservation at Red Sky and the good was amazing . . . we came back the next night. Thrilled to see, this week, that the food and service are still wonderful.
