  • 5 star ratingAwesome seafood! The crab roll and chowders are amazing. The bread they use for their rolls is so delicious with a little crisp on the outside

  • 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 ratingTook a trip to Portland in Fall 2016. Best lobster roll in Maine. Good price, sweet and fresh lobster, and really nice folks. I would eat one every single day if I lived there.

  • 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 ratingWe decided to stop after reading the great reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had the lobster rolls and clam chowder and they were both really tasty! We'll come back the next time we're in town!

  • 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 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 ratingHoly lobstah claw!!! I took off my glasses to put them next to the lobster roll just to give an idea of the size. Size does matter, folks and Pine Tree does not disappoint! And none of those pesky fillers, just fresh Maine lobster in a buttered and toasted split top bun just like God intended.

  • 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 ratingI only saw the sign for Two Fat Cats when I drove by here on the way to somewhere else today.  Wow, I am so glad somewhere else was closed!  What a cute shop with great products.  I was only in search of the best lobster roll, which as other reviews indicate DOES NOT disappoint.  The staff was so friendly, and I met Jim who was also super helpful and friendly.  This is just the type of business where you feel good spending your money.  I will definitely be back!

  • 5 star ratingFive star +++ This business is all about the community around it! During the storm with no power, just generators, they stayed open so that they could be there for us. So thoughtful, friendly, and always the freshest of product.

  • 5 star ratingThis is a specialty seafood market where you can pick out your own lobsters, clams, mussels etc. You can take the fresh seafood home or they'll steam them here for you! Service is excellent and homely.

  • 5 star ratingThese are our favorite lobster rolls in Southern Maine.  We have tried many in the area, but really like how they do it here at Pine Tree.  We keep coming back to Pine Tree and have that as our "standard" when we travel.  They use a slightly longer roll here, and they come packed full of lobster meat !

  • 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 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 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 ratingWe stopped here for lunch before heading back to Portland Oregon and had a couple of great lobster rolls and excellent clam chowder.  Very nice market with an interesting selection of foods, nice fresh seafood selection and excellent friendly service.
