  • 5 star ratingDiscovered this gem while in the area for a weekend. To die for lobster and crab meat rolls, so fresh and lots of meat! Little bit of wasabi on the crab roll, mmm. The chowder was chock full of fish and was super also. Jim the owner is extremely knowledgeable and nice. Hope he comes and opens a location near Bedford NH some day!!

  • 5 star ratingCan't go to Maine and not have lobster rolls. Very fresh lobster and the roll was perfectly toasted and lightly buttered.

  • 5 star ratingWe had ordered 4 pounds of pre-cooked and picked lobster meat and had it shipped out to California. It was delivered in 4 vacuum packed bags, was very cold, free of any shells, and cooked to perfection. As a Maine native who grew up on fresh, locally caught lobster, Pine Tree is the closest you can get without taking a trip back East. We recommend Pine Tree Seafood to anyone looking for authentic Maine seafood; they are simply the best out there!

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
