We stayed in Southwest Harbor ten days ago, and dined at Red Sky. Their lobster risotto was amazing, the best I have ever had. They have a superb wine list as well. Can't wait to go back!

I would call and ask most restaurants allow it but charge a cork fee that can vary so best to ask ahead of time.
