Diamond in the rough!

When we pulled into the "gas station" I had my doubts, but all doubts disappeared with one look at the menu and a bite of their food! We also got an invaluable tip from Ken as to where we might enjoy a lovely quiet picnic on the beach! Now one of my favorite places in Maine to eat and enjoy... read more

Sandwich was good, service was terrible. Walked up to the counter, the three ladies standing behind it stopped talking and then just stared at me. No hello, no smile, they just stared and waited for me to place my order. It was no surprise that their tip jar was empty. One of them seemed like she might be management which... More

We visited my mother in law over the weekend in Maine. She had stopped for gas from the gas station where the Sea Star Market resides. It is housed right next to University of New England. The place looks very unassuming and when i ordered before i seen the place, it was not what i was expecting. I ordered a... More

The unassuming look to the Citgo gas station housing the Sea Star Market could make you pass right by this gem of a deli. Located right next to the entrance to the UNECOM campus makes this an ideal food spot. Lots of excellent choices and very tasty food. I had the Reuben 1 day and it was piled high with... More

Good in a pinch. Transient crowd with lots college kids looking for grub. The place is moderately clean, mostly it's convenient. Decent selection of beer/wine and goodies for the beach. It's recent facelift has helped the appearance. Convenient and friendly local haunt keeps folks coming back for more.

It's hard to believe the quality food at reasonable prices. From the lobster roll, scallops, fried clam breakfast sandwiches, and home made muffins, everything was great. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They also have fresh live lobster to have it cooked for take out or take it live.

I love Sea Star and have been going here for years but they have been going downhill for some time now. Food is good but the service is terrible. We waited for 40 minutes before we got our food. It's sad when 15 people are waiting for food and you have 3 people in the Kitchen just standing there, clueless.... More

I'm so sorry to read about your experience. Being the 3rd of July in "Vacationland" it sounds like we were overwhelmed, but that's not an excuse for poor service or food. I, the owner was working in the kitchen that morning. Some people do ask for the steak and cheese toasted, which we gladly do, as it is now and... More

This is a gem of a place. Really solid food that has all the right touches. Terrific sandwiches, good fried food, and very reasonably priced. Our new favorite for a quick bite.....gas station food

The sandwiches are fresh and tasty, the Green Mountain coffee is very good, the groceries and gas pumps are convenient. You really can't go wrong.

Sandwiches are great. Staff is friendly. Their pizza's are good and it's pretty much a one stop shop. I like stopping here in the mornings for coffee and a Danish from the pastry display.
