We are so lucky to live a short driving distance to the Red Barn. They have the very best seafood around and the atmosphere is soooo friendly.

Going to The Red Barn is enjoyable on multiple levels. First the food is excellent, always consistent. Second, the friendly service is always excellent as well. Third, even at their busiest times of day your food will be ready quickly, no long wait times here. Fourth, they are pet friendly with an outside dining area where pets are welcome. And... More

Well deserved #1 rating. Best lobster roll I've had in this Maine trip. Seafood stew also very good. Husband does not care for seafood but quite liked his burger, and the homemade chips were a cross between chik fil a fries and Lays...very good. Nice story of the owners...a great business to support!

I've been going to the Red Barn several times a year for 30 years. The food is always hot, perfectly cooked and plentiful. The owner regularly gives back to the community and is often on site to chat with everyone. When relatives come from away, this is where they all want us to take them.

We stopped here for the first time on our way to the Hospital in Portland. The food is excellent, reasonably priced and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant is only a couple of miles off I95. We will definitely stop here again when traveling south for pleasure or business.

When I saw this was the #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor, with lots of great reviews, I thought. "Wow, this is gonna be good." And it wasn't. It was a LOT of greasy batter, and bland greasy batter at that. The little pieces of haddock, seriously? Was the filet cut into four pieces? Even the kids' mozzarella sticks were somehow... More

I am so sorry that your experience was not what you were hoping for. I cannot explain your circumstance other that to say that we serve 4,000 meals a day and our seafood is regarded as wonderful and fresh as can be. I am at a loss, really. Love,Laura More

Even though the dining room was packed with people, service was super efficient, friendly, and fast. Had the fried shrimp, haddock, fries and rings. All good!

We stopped here before leaving Augusta and we were impressed. My husband ordered the haddock basket, I had a cup of seafood stew and a 1/4 lb lobster roll, and my boys both had kids meals. We all left full and had extra food. The portions were big, service was fast, and Holly was so friendly and helpful with ordering!!... More
