We stopped here on our way out of Maine and although none of us were hungry we still ate a lot of food it was just that good. We had one lobster roll the traditional way and one with just the lobster and the butter on the side. The seafood stew was fantastic and I wish we would have had... More

We used to Trip Advisor to find a reasonably priced seafood place in Augusta on our way out of town from Belfast. Conveniently located a mile off of Rt. 3, a major thoroughfare from Down East, The Red Barn is in a modest but clean building with primarily in-state license plates in the parking lot. The place was jammed but... More

Stopped for lunch on a Sunday around 1 p.m. Busy place but there seems to be enough seating and parking and the lines move quickly. Only one restroom though. You place your order at the counter or the outside window and they call out your name on a loudspeaker when your order is ready. You can take it inside, outside... More

This casual eat-in, eat-out or take-out restaurant can't be beat - especially for their fried claims or scallops. They definitely rival the best of the best even in Cape Cod MA. Generous servings and reasonable prices make this a regular stop whenever we have visitors in this area and they are never disappointed. Their chowder is amazing, lobster rolls overflowing... More

We were traveling to Limestone, Maine and had to find a place to eat lunch without spending too much time in a restaurant. My wife did a search on her phone and found the Red Barn drive in. It was rated 5 stars and fast service. We were more than surprised when we ordered their 12" lobster roll. The roll... More

I am not a fan of fried food but once in a blue moon will try a great fried item. So we decided, the two of us, to order a cup of the chowder which was full of lobster and other great unfriend seafood in a light buttery broth, a lobster roll because we were in Maine and had not... More

My husband and I shared the Mixed Seafood basket and found it to be plentiful. The scallops, shrimp, and clams were excellent! I would say that I prefer haddock fillets to haddock bites, which were presented in this basket. After ordering, the food was ready in less than 10 minutes. We would definitely go back.

Came with my dog so ordered at the pick up window and ate at the picnic tables in the "meadow". Nice shade trees and wildflowers. Nice surroundings. Ordered the seafood chowder and it was truly jam packed with all different types of seafood including 2 sections of lobster claw! No potatoes that I could find and that is how I... More

The Red Barn is a welcome sight, hidden away in an ordinary residential neighborhood out on US 202 in Augusta. The property is appealing to the eyes, there is a big shade tree, attractive picnic tables with umbrellas and lots of parking, which the place needs. The lines begin early for lunch and only start to ease up around 1.30.... More

Fantastic food, Honest price ! Best seafood chowder in the State of Maine ! Even if it looks crowded there no waiting time as the team in this place has there act together. If it's nice you can take your food out side and relax. Great food- Great people committed to the community and providing the best of both.
