Once we had the twin lobsta roll special, we were hooked on this place!!!! This is a "must stop" on our trips to Maine. We always rode by and wondered, but now we know!!! The lobsta is so fresh & tasty, even the coleslaw is yummy! The staff has always been nice & friendly. We either eat there at one... More

Perfectly toasted roll. More than a 1/4 lb of fresh picked lobster week. I love the warm lobster roll with drawn butter. Cole slaw excellent.

We've stopped by this truck several times before this visit. And most times, we 've planned a detour off Rt. 95 in order to have lunch there before continuing our journey. The lobster rolls are scrumptious so we've never partaken of the 50/50 burger (hamburger/bacon) but someday we'll try one. And it's fun to picnic under the trees and watch... More

The lobster roll was delicious, very fresh and flavorful; lobster is mixed with the slightest bit of mayo, and served in a toasted hot dog roll with a sprinkling of diced celery on top. I thought this was odd at first, but makes perfect sense, adding it on top right before serving keeps the celery crisp and gives a great... More

Best Lobster Roll in entire area! The truck is so cute & clean too. Service was excellent. Two Lobster Rolls for $25 is a great bargain. Spent a week in Kennebunkport area eating lobster every day & this was honestly the best! We ate ours at the picnic tables with perfect French fries too. Can't wait to go back.

I can only surmise that all the glowing reviews were written by people associated with this food truck. I give The Ocean Roll one star for service, two stars for food, and two stars for price. The truck is staffed by two sullen, unpleasant, unfriendly women, who lack any sense of customer service and seem not the slightest bit interested... More

Not to be missed. Lobster rolls are the best. 50/50 burgers, haddock, scallops, baby Maine shrimp and whole belly fried clams are just fantastic.

I was walking around the Topsfield Fair Sept.29 and found this truck, I decided to try it for the first time and the 50/50 burger was awesome, half bacon/half beef. Very tasty and would get this again. Such a neat old truck too, so worth a stop on Rt. 1 or if you find it at a fair or some... More

After reading all of the great reviews, we made The Ocean Roll our first stop when we arrived in Kennebunkport for Labor Day Weekend. It is an antique truck restored as a food truck - very neat looking. They have a few picnic tables under a tent next to the truck to sit at. We ordered two lobster rolls, and... More

Had to stop here after reading reviews...so glad I did! I have had some sub-par lobster rolls while in Maine and was hoping for a good one here- it did not disappoint! Lobster rolls were loaded and amazing! Best I've had anywhere! A must stop! Super friendly crew as well!
