We were recommended to Red Sky by locals as well as people who vacation on the Outer Banks each year. When arriving, the parking lot is far too small, so we parked about 3 businesses away (and didn't get ticketed). As we entered the hallway...More

We enjoyed this place on a rainy evening in Duck. We typically stay in Nags Head so we showed up right at 5 expecting a wait, and we were the first people there on a Monday night in July. I'm not sure if this was...More

The service was outstanding. Our server was personable, speedy, and fun. The food was just average. The atmosphere was also average. Very overpriced. The impression attempted was swanky but it didn't live up to more than just overpriced average food.

They were able to accommodate our larger party right away. Good cocktails. My dinner was the Trio and it was delicious, my husband got the shrimp and grits which were very good too. Small portions for the price. We enjoyed our meal.

Dinner was awesome. Great server, awesome swordfish with a mild flavorful yellow curry. Son had a burger and proclaimed it one of the best ever. He has a lot of burgers. The dessert tray was eye popping and the key lime cake (yes cake) did...More

My wife and I have driven past the Red Sky Cafe for years, owing to the fact that we usually have lodging in Corolla. This year we stayed in a Condo in Duck and enjoyed a tasty lunch at Red Sky Cafe. Natalie, our waitperson,...More

Sorry, but, I don't have an answer for you. They have a nice variety of items on their menu though with daily specials.
