  • 5 star ratingWe stopped here yesterday. The Lobster Roll was off the charts! Lobster was so fresh, light mayo...toasty roll...then wait wait...drizzled with melted butter. Guy inside so friendly and is a perfectionist in the art of the Lobster Roll. Go here!!!

  • 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 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!

  • 5 star ratingWe heard this was the place to go for the best lobster in Maine and man oh man, were the reviews right! Concerned they would close before we had a chance to get there, we gave them a call, preordered to have a few fresh lobsters cooked and 20 minutes later they were ready for us. The service was incredible, helpful and warm. We grabbed some butter and wine and brought the lobsters back to our AirBnB and loved every bite. Now I understand why people love lobster like they do- lobster like this is worth every penny!

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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!
