This restaurant is inland but they have their own boats in Belfast Maine. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. Laura's Seafood Stew is chockfull of seafood and fish with no potatoes! You can also get a chilled quart to go. Consider a detour here if you are on your way to Bar Harbor.

The Red Barn in Augusta, Maine, is an immaculate eat in the rough seafood restaurant. The seafood chowder is loaded and is the best we have ever had. Everyone in our group felt the same. This restaurant is a must if you are visiting Maine.

Found Red Barn on TA. Glad we took a little detour. Scallops and lobster roll were delicious. Staff was very pleasant and very efficient. Very popular with the locals.

The Red Barn knows how to make a seafood chowder. Chockful of lobster and other goodies this was a highlight of my trip to Maine. Was just driving through Augusta on my way south and decided to stop here. Knew it had to be good based on the crowds but the waiting time to order and get food was sooo... More

This was a fun stop for my road tripping family. Giant piles of good food (had the clam strips, the lobster roll and the kids had chicken) ate everything. Had a live band outside. I found the price to be right for the amount we got. Would swing by here again!

The variety of food on the menu is great. They even have chicken and burgers for those who don't eat seafood. Portion sizes are great and it was very fast service. Even though they seem to always be so busy, they are fast at getting the food out to you. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars... More

The menu is extensive, and despite the crowds, the food was brought to the counter very quickly. The haddock and chicken are delicious, as well as the french fries and mozzarella sticks. We also loved their ice cream and whoopie pies! They have an extensive selection of soft drinks too. We will definitely come back on our next visit to... More
