The Red Sky Cafe does not look that inviting from the outside and also for us tourists from the UK the word Cafe conjures up more of a lunchtime / snack sandwich place. This is far removed from the whole experience, there was a friendly...More

The service was slow, but the food was good. The bathroom was outside the restaurant in the corridor.

Though the service was a little spotty, the food at Red Sky is very nicely prepared. There is a good kids' menu, with the exception of the tasteless french fries. The prices are quite reasonable too. Definitely the best meal we had in Duck.

Very nice wait staff, reasonably priced menu. A little noisy. Delicious bread! Wish there were more traditional seafood platters available. My friend said the ribs were great. Save room for sweets. Highly recommend making a reservation.

We ordered at the Red Sky cafe and prior to our food arriving my daughter got sick. My family left me there to wait on our food. The waiter was very understanding and got everything packed up to go for me. Even after walking home...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.
