Amazing seafood and huge portions! The line moves quicker than any fast food place and the staff is so friendly. Scallops are highly recommended.

Always good food, pick up window needs to be open outside in the winter because it's a real cluster bleep to get your food when you phone it in; and others are trying to order to eat in.

Went here today after speaking with the owner who went way above and beyond to accommodate my seafood/fish allergy. The owner, Laura, is out in the dining room cleaning tables and greeting/chatting with all the customers. The food here AMAZING and huge portions. I have not had onion rings and chicken this good since I was a kid and ate... More

The seafood and chicken is the best in the Augusta Area, the seafood chowder is the best! The portions are generous, the seafood fresh, great family meal deal and fried veggies are a great appetizer that is unique.

Thanks TripAdvisor for steering us to lunch at The Red Barn in Augusta. Five minutes off the Maine Turnpike, and a most welcome dining break while driving across the state. Three if us enjoyed two grilled haddock sandwiches, a lobster roll, onion rings and drinks. All for $26. Great value! Tasty meal! Nice family-run business. Crowded with friendly people, but... More

Loved this place! We enjoyed sitting outside and the fast service. The price was great too. We cannot complain about any of the food we had here. NC definitely needs a place like this!

This place is a local (and one of my family's) favorite! Amazing fried fish and meats which are served up quickly and always hot! The seafood chowder / stew is hands down one of the best in Maine - packed with goodies and lobster claws! Amazing! This place also has a nice old time atmosphere and is also known for... More

Based on the tripadvisor reviews I was looking forward to dinner at the Red Barn. Although their website says that they are open until 8 PM, in the winter they close at 7 AM. You can imagine my heart break when I arrived at 7:15 PM to find the restaurant closed.
