We stayed in Southwest Harbor ten days ago, and dined at Red Sky. Their lobster risotto was amazing, the best I have ever had. They have a superb wine list as well. Can't wait to go back!

Had dinner at Red Sky last night and was largely disappointed. For a restaurant whose reviews have, for the most part, been very favorable, some basic expectations of gourmet cooking were not met. For one, the lobster was overcooked and therefore tough. For another, the...More
