  • 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 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 ratingThe lobster roll was perfection. They also sell some local good, fresh high quality seafood, live lobstahs, some produce, dairy products, vino, blueberry pie and some other goodies. Call your order in..

    Lobster roll is on a long toasted and lightly buttered hot dog roll. Loads of delish meat. Perfection.

  • 5 star ratingWow. Going into a place that averages 5 stars, I was skeptical. Did not want to have that "I don't get what the fuss is over" experience, but boy was their food good. Whatever they do with their lobster and crab rolls keep on doing it cause damn. Probably the best lobster roll I ever had. Right amount of mayo, butter on the roll and lobster. My wife and I had one to go as well...unfortunatley it was left where our dog could get it. He had a tasty meal too.

  • 5 star ratingWe ordered a steamed lobster, a dozen oyster, lobster roll, and clam chowder. They were fantastic. Lobster was so juicy and sweet. Definitively recommended

  • 5 star ratingCame in and ordered a giant lobster cooked for $11 and fresh corn on the cob. Sat at a table in side. They also have outdoor dining. On a budget then try this place. It was so cute inside and had lots of great things. The staff was super helpful and nice. It's right on the highway.

  • 5 star ratingWow! Words fail me. Amazing lobster rolls. Crisp, grilled buttery bun slight amount of lettuce and nicely filled with sweet plain lobster meat. It needed nothing else. In fact, adding something would have ruined it. Clam chowder was hot and delicious. Great flavor, nice amount of crab meat. What a delightful stop. Rainy day visit, fortunately they had two small tabletops for eating inside this market or we would have missed it! Great food, super friendly staff. My favorite food stop on our tour of Maine!

  • 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 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 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 ratingWe came in from flying into Portland, ME on our way to Kennebunkport. This place was the perfect stop between the two to introduce us to our first lobster roll. The roll was grilled and buttered to perfection and the lobster was tender and delicious. What a great find! Run don't walk to this place!

  • 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 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 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.
