Excellant seafood! !

Best place around for seafood. The food is not greasy and plentiful - can never finish the meal! Have been patronizing the Red Barn since it opened...just keeps getting better and better!!

My husband and I went for dinner since we just moved to the area. I remember it always being busy, but I also remembered it being much better taste wise. Every table was taken at 8pm except the one we sat at and there were plenty of people waiting for take out. The line of the people moved quick. They... More

every one talks about this place and I was disappointed. Got more fries than fish.Cole slaw needed more flavor. My real peeve was the fact they were sweeping floors while we were eating food ,

Best lobster roll in central Maine, amazing fried scallops, tasty fries.... Those are my go to items but they have something for everyone including fried chicken which is a popular choice, they're known widely for. The employees are also fantastic and always helpful. Red Barn is known to help fund charities and many nights you could be donating just by... More

We live about 2 miles from the Red Barn. Because of the crowds, we usually get take-out. Call in the order and it is ready by the time we drive there. In the summer when those relatives that moved away come home for a visit, a trip to the Red Barn is always on the list. From all the choices... More

We’re tourists and maybe there’s better seafood around, but the Red Barn seemed as authentic a Maine eating experience as one is likely to get. Locals packed this place but the turnover was fast and the service incredibly friendly and accommodating. A pink-haired lady roved the room, assuring everyone’s satisfaction; she gave us a complimentary cup of their excellent seafood... More

On a recent foliage trip to New England the my wife and I happened to go near Augusta Maine. I did a search on my GPS for restaurants nearby, and the Red Barn Restaurant was listed and had a few reviews so we decided to stop by. It was easy to find, and had a huge parking lot with many... More

When I found out that I had to work in Augusta all week, I wasn't too bummed as I remembered the Red Barn was not far. I went 3 times for lunch..getting the mixed seafood snack the first time around (fish, shrimp, clam & scallop with fries) for $11.75 and since the scallops were so sweet and tasty, I went... More

We have been here several times, and they always provide fresh and delicious seafood. Fast service and reasonable prices. Plenty of parking as well. We really like the Red Barn Drive-In.
