I’ve eaten here before. Visiting Augusta again, I stopped by late in the day. It was busy as usual. At the walk-up counter, I ordered the Lobster Roll at $13.95. With tax it was $15.07. It was about 10-minute wait for my food. The lobster roll was very good. There was a good portion of fresh, moist lobster meat. Service... More

I have been coming to Maine since childhood, but since the 1990's, whenever I am in the area, the Red Barn is a must. Wonderful seafood stew, lobster rolls and the best fried clams in the region!

This is a chicken and seafood restaurant. Everything is freshly made to order. This place is hopping - when you drive-up the parking lot is usually full. There is a line at the counter but don't let this put you off. Service is very fast. Food is definetly worth the short wait.

Large portions of good seafood for a reasonable price. I had the Haddock Basket with fries and a roll for $11. The amount of fish was incredible- would have preferred a lighter batter but still very good. One drawback is they have no bathrooms. Instead there are a couple of port-a-potties by the parking lot. The parking is jammed with... More

We there for the first time with some friends that have been here. Drove in and the parking lot was packed. Good sign. Ordered our food and ate outside where there was plenty of picnic tables. Food was inexpensive and delicious. It was also pet friendly so our dog got to sit with us. Definitely will go back next time... More

I have been to the red barn many times. My family went just last week to celebrate my fathers 91 birthday. There were seven of us. The fried chicken snack was great and the helping was huge. The fried chicken basket was even bigger and fed my brother and his son . My family also had a seafood snack. A... More

It's worth the terrible parking *sometimes* because their parking is truly terrible. They need a take out parking and an overall bigger parking lot period. The food though.... outstanding!

The only place I will go to get seafood in the area. Always fresh, no matter how busy the service is friendly and quick. The food is always excellent. No matter what you purchase quality and quantity is a great value for the price.
