  • 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 ratingMy sister and I are from Florida and are visiting family in Scarborough. On a previous visit we did a taste test of several lobster rolls in the Portland area. We both decided that Pinetree has the best! The lobster and the lightly toasted roll are delicious! Now when we visit we don't waste our time going anywhere else. Pinetree is the best! Rita Kovar

  • 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 rating5 star lobster rolls. Believe the great lobster roll reviews. The buttered roll it is served on is perfection. Very fresh, cooked well. We ate there than even got some to go. Glad we stopped. We were pleased with the clam chowder as well.

  • 5 star ratingGreat fish market. Limited but super high quality selection of local fish and shellfish with huge lobster tanks flanking the side of the store. There is also a nice selection of groceries with an emphasis on seafood (obviously) as well as wine and fancy sodas. Very clean place.

    The owner was also super nice and very understanding as our young son was at peak obnoxiousness the day we were in. So thanks!!!

  • 5 star ratingIt was very clean and seafood focused little market. It's small but offers a variety of items, from local beer to farm fresh milk.
    Everything was fresh. You can see lobsters swimming in the tank. They are happy to steam them for you. The large soft shell lobster was big enough for one person. The staff was very patient and answered all of our questions.
    We got a lobster roll and crab cake sandwiches too. The lobster roll was really good and big. Definitely coming back if we are ever in this area again.

  • 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 ratingGet your lobsters and steamers from this place! You'd never be disappointed. If you like your lobster rolls hot toasted and buttered, I highly recommend trying theirs.

  • 5 star ratingThis is a great place for all your seafood needs. I got 2 hard shell and 2 soft shell lobsters. They cooked them for me. Bowl of clam chowder, haddock, crab cake and a scallop cake. Everything was incredible. We will go back tomorrow for round 2.
