    Let's get this out of the way first, Portland Lobster Company is definitely a touristy spot, but beyond that, there is some good food and fun times to be had here. The deck is huge and overlooks water

    Walk up, order lobster and eat!!! During nice weather times, the dock is perfect, quite spacious with plenty of seating!! Lobster mac n cheese was super crispy and delicious - big pieces of lobster!!!

    The fresh lobster meat has a slight buttery glaze and is nestled into a toasted and buttered bun. The accompanying fries are crispy and just too delicious to pass up. Read more

    Make sure you order first then ask for a table outside! While you wait check for a high top by the music! It's a little loud out there. Great Maine lobster!

    Good lobster roll (comes with fries too, which seems to be rare around here) Corn on the cob very good. Great view. Local beers. And reasonably priced.

    Giant portions of awesome food! Not a long wait, and plenty of tables outside to enjoy the view from! The staff are all very friendly too!

    Great lobster rolls (not too much added, so you get the full lobster flavor), good beer, and a great place to hang out outside on a sunny afternoon. A highlight of our trip to Portland!

    live music, drinks, and fresh seafood on the water - you can't ask for much more. everyone said to try the lobster roll - so glad I did! it was outrageously good!!

    Drove over an hour to try the lobster roll. Would drive 2+ hours if in the area in the future. Amazing food, all chunky lobster meat in the lobster roll!

    What a great place for a Lobster Roll - Cold beer - live music and good view. I wish they were open year round!

    Amazing fresh lobster that you can eat right on a pier and listen to live music. You order your food from the bar and then pick it up after your plastic lobster lights up.

    Get the lobster meal for the total Maine experience. fresh lobster, cole slaw, corn on the cob and fries. $17.99 and more filling than the lobster roll!

    Try to sit in outdoors tent in the middle between the heat lanterns, so you can enjoy your meal in cozy warmth next to the live band playing!

    Ridiculously good lobster roll! Get there early because there was a wait, but worth it (plus drinks on the pier while waiting? Yes, please!)

    Wow, the seafood, the view, the staff ... Too bad they are not open year round. Some the best in Portland for food, entertainment and great down time

    Sign in first. Order food 5 minutes after that way you are guaranteed a seat once u get ur food. Awesome view and lobster feast!

    Not all lobster rolls are created equal, but this one has fresh lobster meat with a slight buttery glaze and is nestled into a toasted and buttered bun with just the right amount of mayo.

    Nice location to stop by and have a quick and delish lobster roll lunch for tourists.

    The tip from Epicurious is erroneous; the lobster roll here is dressed only with a drizzle of butter, no mayo at all. In any case: DELICIOUS!!! :)

    The Maine shrimp wrap was yummy and I loved the corn on the cob! Plus they have the best buzzers. :)

    Great, easy food in a fun, waterfront shack. Nicely priced for what you get. Lobster rolls were great.
  • Anthony N.
    Great vibe, friendly atmosphere on water with good staff. Nice place to have a beer and listen to live music. Food was very basic. Portion sizes were okay prices okay. But not a ton of flavor

    Recommended by local chef Erik Desjarlais: "They have an outdoor deck right on the water, freezing cold beers, and a lobster roll worthy of a James Beard award."

    Now I see why they won the 2011 Lobster Roll contest! They give you "a lot" of lobster and it's perfectly cooked!! This is a must try!!!

    Quite busy in the summer and hard to find a comfortable place to sit. I got a lobster roll that was so tiny!

    So my 1 1/4 lb lobster was definitely under 1 lb.... not thrilled by that. Fun live music. How they have 2 bathrooms (1 for each gender) is beyond me- HUGE lines 😢

    the lobster roll was alright, not really worth the long wait but certainly worth the view and chill vibes on the back patio!

    Lobster roll wasn't too bad. The roll itself could've used some more butter though
  • Samantha 💃 L.
    The lobster rolls aren't flavorful, the bread is dry, but the actual lobster meat is good.

    If you dont eat seafood dont came here. Food is not all that. Its like a tourist trap and I didn't see anything special about it. There is no waitress and you have to carry your order to the table
