Maine Seafood and Fast!

This take out has a lot of seating indoors and out so no worries if the weather is frightful or delightful. The seafood stew was so buttery and creamy. The lobster rolls come in multiple sizes from just right to a two pound monster roll filled to the brim with a touch of butter-perfect! There are... read more

We went here based on reviews on tripadvisor. Food was plentiful but without flavour. The best part was the soup, good portion and tasty. Deep fried food could have more flavour. Service was good for a fast food joint.

The Red Barn is a very busy place. People come from all over to try this place out and there are very many regulars who swear by the place. The famous stew is not overhyped a bit. It is chock full of seafood and is truly delicious. The fried seafood had too much coating on it for my taste, but... More

A must when in Augusta, this place has friendly service and simply-prepared, but delicious food. It is counter service and seat yourself casual, which works just fine for everyone there. I had the lobster roll which was a plentiful portion, but I must admit I prefer my lobster roll without lettuce and even mayonnaise. It was still quite good. The... More

After being recommended, this place was so busy and the food was amazing! I ordered the Chicken basket and my wife ordered the lobster roll. We are definitely coming back here the next time we are down in Augusta.

We stopped at this restaurant because of the excellent Tripadvisor reviews and rating - and are we glad we did! The people are so friendly, and the prices are great, but wow, the food is incredible. We had the fish chowder and the fried clam roll. The chowder was literally loaded with fish, and my husband said it was the... More

Good fried food restaurant that supports our community. Our Modern Woodmen Group meets there annually and we always enjoy our visit. Nice place to have dinner and meet friends or family.

Unexpected stop and a great find. I was hoping for clam chowder, only had seafood chowder. It was fantastic. I'm typically not a seafood chowder fan but I'm now a Red Barn seafood chowder fan. Whole fried clams were great. Kids were happy with the burger and hot dog. Good food. Helpful service. Great hometown feel. Worth it!
