  • 5 star ratingTheir 'knuckle sandwich' lobster roll is the best dam lobster roll I've ever had. Luscious tender all meat on a lightly buttered toasted bun. Perfect. Not cheap but worth every penny. Crab sliders are fabulous too.

  • 5 star ratingGreat little market with awesome lobster rolls. The clam chowder was very good. The place has a couple tables inside the market and a couple picnic tables outside, nothing fancy but very tasty. Well worth a visit.

  • 5 star ratingFresh food, nice service, great experience. The lobster roll is a must. The shrimp is sooo fresh and juicy. Don't forget the coke slaw to delight your meal. Call 20 mins in advance to have your food prepared. The picture didn't show but they have small dining area in doors and out doors.

  • 5 star ratingSuper friendly and great food what a perfect combo. Ordered the lobster roll and clam chowder and it's one of those rare instances that you try not to finish your meal because it will be sadly over. I quite simply enjoyed every single bite. I will DEFINITELY eat here if I am ever in the area again.

  • 5 star ratingWe went there twice for lunch during the 4 night vacation in Portland. It's worth the wait because the food was so delicious. The carb roll and shrimp roll were exceptional.

  • 5 star ratingThis place is really small and local- more like a store than an eating place. Counter service with only one employee when we were there. Only two small tables if you want to eat there. But the lobster was super fresh and yummy and clam chowder is great too. Glad we found this place.

  • 5 star ratingWe ordered a steamed lobster, a dozen oyster, lobster roll, and clam chowder. They were fantastic. Lobster was so juicy and sweet. Definitively recommended

  • 5 star ratingI just had a fantastic, hand-crafted lobster roll at Pine Tree. This was my second time there and it was perfection both times. If you want a very generous serving of lobster, on a toasted roll with warm butter, go visit this locally owned and operated business. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a great selection of fresh seafood and the little market sells many other Maine made items. This is definitely my new go to for a great lobster roll whenever I am in town!

  • 5 star ratingFound through Yelp while staying in Scarborough for Memorial Day. Needed quick trip and was surprised in best way! Fresh live lobsters, local wines, produce, salsas, bread, and friendliest folks. Has a few tables to sit and enjoy a meal!! Freezer has salami, fudge, etc...and I found great local soaps as gifts!

  • 5 star ratingGreat place to stop for a lobster roll. It's a small store with limited seating and a couple of tables outside, but the lobster and crab Rolls were crazy good and not too expensive. I loved eating outdoors at the picnic tables. Definitely will make this a stop whenever I'm in the area for lunch!

  • 5 star ratingIt is interesting that the best rated Lobster places in Maine are these little shops and not sit down restaurants, but the lobster rolls are great and the variety of other options is quite nice. Definitely a place to stop by at least once while visiting Maine as they have great food both ready to eat and source ingredients to take home and use for recipes.
    The kids got a big kick out of seeing live lobsters in (and out!) of the tank.

  • 5 star ratingWow. Going into a place that averages 5 stars, I was skeptical. Did not want to have that "I don't get what the fuss is over" experience, but boy was their food good. Whatever they do with their lobster and crab rolls keep on doing it cause damn. Probably the best lobster roll I ever had. Right amount of mayo, butter on the roll and lobster. My wife and I had one to go as well...unfortunatley it was left where our dog could get it. He had a tasty meal too.

  • 5 star ratingGreat lobster roll with toasted roll.
    I don't get to eat lobster roll often being from New Jersey but this was one of the best I've had.
    Picnic tables outside. Not a place with inside seating.

  • 5 star ratingAbsolutely awesome lobster roll and some solid chowder to go with it. Very friendly folks working the counter. Love all the locally produced food they have for sale.

  • 5 star ratingWe've been going to get lobster in this place every time we visit Maine. Also offers curbside pickup which is very convenient specially during this pandemic. Will surely recommend this place to get live/steamed lobster.
