On Sunday (May 21st) My wife and I had heard from a few friends that the male cook from last year was no longer there and We were all too happy to go visit our favorite lunch spot. The lobster rolls were to die for as I so deliciously recall from years past NOT including last year. I'm so happy... More

Doing my annual family visit to Maine I always stop in for a lobster roll as tradition. I make a couple trips a year to The Ocean Roll and this year has by far been the best. There is a new young lady working the window and due to no name tag I couldn't catch her name. (Eyebrow ring and... More

My mother in law from NJ recently moved here to Maine to be near us. She has been trying different things "lobster." I went up to the order window and told the woman in the truck that my mom wanted to try a real Maine lobster roll and we heard these were great. I expected the woman to say something... More

We always stop here for lunch when heading to the K-port area, which is about 7 times a summer. Food is no frills, but super fresh. Mostly fried seafood with fries. Also have dogs and burgers.

I was told that I must try the lobster roll from this place, so I had all intentions to, but I got side tracked when I saw they offered a 1/2 beef 1/2 bacon burger. It was tasty. I will go back again I probably won't get the lobster roll even though that's what everyone raves about because I'm a... More

We tried the hot lobster roll with butter. It was delicious! It came with a side of cole slaw that seemed home made and was very good too. The lobster roll was $15, which I'm guessing is about average for the area. If you like fried seafood definitely check this place out!

Had a lobster roll which was excellent, and a cup of the clam chowder which was simply amazing. Staff was very friendly.

Starving, we pulled over to see about their lobster rolls. I had heard they were good, and holy cow were they! Honestly, excellent food and friendly people. Not a great location, but if you need lunch before or after a trip to Hannafords, stop here!

Thank You for the praise !! We don't serve anything we would eat, and we have been in the fish business for 30 years, so we are pretty picky about what goes out the door. More
