We ate here on our recent trip to Acadia National Park and this was one of the three restaurants we tried in Southwest Harbor. We arrived quite late, so we avoided the normal queue at 7 o' clock. The staff were friendly but the service...More

Had to wait a while for our reserved table, but the room is very pretty and we were happy to finally be seated. The staff is friendly and good. Some parts of the meal were very good but others like the roasted potatoes that came...More

The Food Gods must have smiled. To make up for a dreadful lunch experience at The Cellar (in reference to the service, not the location, which was on the ground floor) in Ellsworth (q.v.), my dinner at the Red Sky was a terrific experience. A...More

Three of us had an early dinner on a Thursday. Two of us had the maple glazed baby ribs. Very good and tender but not fall-off-the-bone style. Accompanied with French style green beans and an interesting and tasty potato that was thinly sliced and square...More

We went on a Monday night, having made reservations the week before, which turned out to be a good idea because they were jammed, at least at 7:30. For such a busy restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised that we could actually have a conversation between...More

We come each year for dinner during our Bar Harbor vacation. Reservations are your best bet, especially on weekends. There is some bar seating, but never enough for the walk-ins we see get turned away. I don't think there are more than 15 tables at...More

We enjoyed this peaceful, elegant restaurant off Main Street in Southwest Harbor. Be sure to get a reservation, as we saw those without them enduring waits by the door (we had a reservation and were seated immediately). The only reason we gave Red Sky 4...More
