This place must be under new ownership now. What a disappointment. We used to love this place. Had our usual entrees recently and the portions were about half the size as usual and the food was not fresh. The grouper was flavorless and the mango salsa was rancid tasting. It had that tangy flavor when the fruit is past it's... More

Haven't been here for a couple months due to the summer crowds. Couldn't wait to return but the food was poor, from the quality to the taste. This place used to serve fresh food full of flavor. last night we got the grouper special that was a small portion, dry, and with so little crab on it we laughed. I... More

My daughter and I love Mexican food but my husband does not. This restaurant was outstanding for all of us. We enjoyed our burritos while he enjoyed the ribs. We will be back!

We stopped in for a repeat meal that we had a few weeks ago. The dish contains scallops, shrimp and crab meat. The first time we had this dish, it was excellent, which is why we returned. Unfortunately, this time, something was missing. All the seafood was there, but it seemed to be missing cheese. We were very disappointed. Our... More

We ate here for the first time last night. The wait staff was courteous and helpful. We started by sharing the fried tomatoes with cilantro and pesto ...YUM! For dinner we had steak fajitas and chicken rellenos. Both entrees were very good. The portions were large, and we wound up taking much of our dinners home to enjoy again! We... More

Doesn't look like much from the road, but it's worth the visit. The food is quite good and well-prepared, the service was attentive without being suffocating. Nothing special about heir salsa and chips, although they do have several sauces and spices on each table for you to add. The appetizer special we tried was something different and it was really...

I ate here in the past when it was good. Some friends and I went there today and we will never return. The food was completely inedible AND we waited 45+ minutes. I almost forgot to mention the putrid smelling dumpster in the parking lot. The smell pervades the entire parking area. This should have been my clue to leave.

Years ago we went to this restaurant and had to wait in line for a least 30 minutes. The reason being that the food, prices and quality was really good. I live at the Jersey Shore and usually waited until the tourists went home to dine at Red Sky. A year ago I saw the quality of the food go... More

First went to Red Sky when it first opened, eons ago, and were regular customers. For some unknown reason, we stopped going. I read some TA reviews, and then decided to return. This place is as good as it was when it first opened, it was great seeing Jeff again. The buffalo chicken appetizer was spicy, with a fabulous white... More
