  • 5 star ratingGood food and nice people make this joint a must when in Portland area. Great looking fresh seafood counter with signs that shows where each ingredient came from. Delicious lobster roll and clam chowder. Only complaint, they had really cool t-shirts on the wall but were all sold out. I would totally rep Pine Tree Seafood!

  • 5 star ratingCompletely unassuming location that I actually drove right past in the dark. Was greeted by super friendly staff and ordered the lobster roll. Spent my time waiting for my order entertained by the lobsters in their tanks sloshing around. Found one of the couple high tops available to sit and proceeded to have the best lobster roll I've ever had. Would highly recommend, the price was fair, and the lobster was fresh.

  • 5 star ratingWe 'found' this place in October last year, during a vacation... stopped in on a whim after wandering around Scarborough for a bit.

    If you're in Scarborough.... you HAVE to stop in for the BEST lobster roll anywhere! If you're NOT in Scarborough... go there anyway. Or, have them shipped to you!

    I just had 4 lobster rolls overnight shipped to me for a birthday. The packing was perfect, SUPER easy assembly instructions, AND just as good at home as in store!

    Why are you still reading this? GO! GO THERE NOW!

  • 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 ratingI'll add our voices to the chorus praising these lobster rolls to the high heavens. My goodness, they were absolutely amazing. The crab roll and the clam chowder were also fantastic. We didn't peruse the wares but there was some interesting local items that we'll check out next time we come through. Hopefully that won't be in too long at all, as we'll be dreaming of that meal for many moons.

  • 5 star ratingLove this place! We have been eating lobster rolls all over this summer and they for sure make one of the best! We love the grocery store part too and always find something unique to buy. They are also great if want to snag some lobsters for home. They cook them up for free so it makes for an easy dinner option. This is a place we will continue to frequent, an all around great spot in Scarborough.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent place and the owner Jim and his employees are super nice people. The Seafood is always fresh and the prices are very good and the seafood is always fresh but they have so much more than seafood. Pastries, vegetable, dairy and more.

  • 5 star ratingThis is a nice little shop with lobsters, oysters, and other seafood offerings. They also have wine and other beverages as well as sauces to pair with the seafood, which most people seem to take home to prepare. We opted to dine in and ordered a bunch of oysters for $2+$1 shucking fee each, a lobster roll (cheaper than most), clam chowder, and a couple of enormous cocktail shrimp. Everything was delicious and the oysters, which are locally sourced, were incredibly fresh.

    There was a shelf of baked goods with pies that were very tempting that I may go back for.

  • 5 star ratingWe ordered lobsters cooked on 4/23/20, they were so delicious, sweet and full of meat. Their crabmeat is from Stonington and probably the best we've ever had, the display counter of haddock, salmon ,scallops etc.is always stocked with fresh fish. Unique little shop also has available wine, pastries from 2 Fat Cats, and produce. The help is very polite and willing to help, try this once and you will become a regular!
