We always plan a meal at Red Sky Cafe whenever we are in Duck. There is a nice variety on the menu, servers are friendly and efficient, the atmosphere is unassuming. Give it a try!

Friendly staff but little patience. Our server skipped one of the kids for drink order because he was hesitant. Food selection is limited but very nice flavors. I had gobbler sandwich which was delicious. Others had burgers and barbecue which were also great.
