The food and craft cocktails were delightful! The staff was lovely and attentive! And get the Oreo cake!!! One of our favorite dining experiences in the Outer Banks.
Awesome as usual! Taylor makes the best cocktails and pays extra attention to our needs with every visit!!!
We go to Red Sky every year; this year because of social distancing there were fewer diners inside and that actually improved the ambiance - a bit less frantic and noisy. Always excellent food, very good service and very easy reservations - when so many restaurants in Duck and the rest of OBX have abandoned online reservations, we appreciate the option to plan ahead.
The waiter took our food order. Delivered our apps, skipped our salad, my son had no fork for his entree, then charged us double entrees for 3 out of 4 meals. Super uncool and super disappointed. We were really looking forward to revisiting Red Skye.
It was nice. We initially were seated inside but it was freezing and the music loud. We were able to move outside and it was much better. The food was very good but service was compromised due to COVID and the small staff. They tried hard.
I thought the food was delicious. I had the tuna and my boyfriend had the duck. We also enjoyed the scallops as an appetizer. The only thing we did not enjoy was the side order of "southern style" grits. They were very congealed. Otherwise, it was a great meal and we will be back the next time we're in Duck.
Waiters did not keep masks on and musicians outside were worse. Understand not wearing a mask when singing but cane over to our table without mask several times.
Very un comfortable
Enjoyed a great dinner here with friends. Made reservations a week in advance. Table was waiting. Delicious tuna bites and scallops casino appetizers. Enjoyed fried seafood platters and the duck. Service and food top notch!!
Everything was great. Only gave 4 stars for ambiance because it was really chilly in the restaurant. Overall, everything was outstanding. Best weekend brunch in Duck. The libations were top notch, as was the Crab Cake Benedict. We will definitely go back, but I'll bring a cardigan next time.
We usually eat here every year. The service this year was rude, the food was unacceptable. When we complained about two of the dinners (ribs were so rubbery and touch we could not cut them with a steak knife), management was also rude. We will never return after years of eating there.
great service, great food, dedicated staff! Impressed as before!
Loved it! Always part of our beach trip to obx.
Truffle Fries! Food was delicious. My daughter loved her seafood tacos, my crab cake sandwich was mostly crab and a little cake. Perfect seasoning. And the siracha Bloody Mary was probably the best I've ever had. Great service, and well done despite COVID-19 restrictions.
Red Sky is a long time favorite that never disappoints. The staff is awesome. Our server, Jack was fantastic. (And quite a funny guy) The open kitchen allowed us to see and hear the magic happening. The high quality ingredients show through on every plate. We will continue to return every time we are in the area.
Fried green tomatoes and sauce are southern culinary art. Salmon, chicken and shrimp and grits are impeccably prepared and tasty. Wine selections, (Prosecco, Chardonnay and Cabs) are excellent and affordable by the glass. Desserts were excellent. Room was a little warm and table a little cramped. You’ll forget that once you start eating. This a favorite place now.
Great meal. Top notch food. Shrimp and grits was delicious. Complementary appetizer of artichoke dip was flavorful and much appreciated. We came early hoping to sit outside but had to sit inside. Inside wasn’t bad but outdoors is a much nicer dining experience with live music and a breezier, more comfortable setting. Great food and good service but feel like we missed out a little by having to sit inside.
Not sure how reservations are being staggered but too many people arriving at the same time made for longer waits for you meals. Food was delicious.
We had a great dinner! The drink menu was really nice with lots of unique options. We had the tuna and filet and both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The carrot cheese cake is so good. Will definitely be back.
