We had the good fortune to dine twice in a week at Red Sky. Both dinners were excellent. The wine specials were well chosen, well priced, and excellent. The menu carries some dishes from year to year so we have seen some of these in prior years but the quality of execution and service make this a fine experience. Since we don't venture to Bar Harbor we have no idea how this compares to anything there, but with Red Sky in reach there is no reason to cross the island for dinner. Stay on the Quietside and enjoy really fine dining.

Cute little place in the small town of Southwest Harbor, ME. Excellent wait staff, great menu, and very good food. I am sure this is one of the nicest restaurants in the area. A must when you are vacationing in Southwest a Harbor.

enjoyed dinner here with my husband and mom...service was very good and the wine recommendations appreciated. I had mussels in wine sauce that was very good and great for taking some bread and sopping up the sauce! But if you intend on doing this, be careful how much you order for your entree as it can be filling. My entree was wonderful...duck breast prepared exactly as requested. Really was a wonderful meal. My husband enjoyed lamb tacos and scallops, both wonderful.....

Menu does not change much over time. Rather snobby expensive place for the area. Food not worth the price.

We've been going to Red Sky since they opened some years ago, and the food remains consistently excellent. With very good service, an excellent wine list, lots of variety on the menu, this is probably the best restaurant on the Island. Our only wish is that James, the owner/chef, changed the menu items a bit more often. Of special note in the past year are his fish items, especially an extraordinary red snapper he has served.
