With A Focus On Family And Community, The Red Barn Has Been A Favorite Restaurant For Over 40 Years

Since 1977, The Red Barn in Augusta has been a mainstay for generations of families. People return not just for the delicious food offered at a great value, but also for the great sense of community. When Bill and Florence Benedict first opened the doors to The Red Barn, they served chicken and seafood to both locals and tourists in central Maine. Today it is still owned and operated by a member of the Benedict family.

Bill and Florence instilled the family’s good work ethic in each of their 10 children, all of which have worked at The Red Barn over the years. One of those hard-working children, Laura Benedict, took over the family business in 1986 and turned it into the incredible place it is today.
