Best lobster roll in the area

Their lobster rolls are crazy huge, we had to eat half-off the top with a fork before being able to pick it up. The clams are very large and equally delicious.prices are reasonable for the amount you receive. I am very difficult to impress and I was.

Usually if I take the time to write a review its because one of two things happened: the experience was really good, or it was really awful. Our experience at Fisherman's grill was really good. So good in fact that we stop whenever we're in Maine. So why come here when there are hundreds of seafood places to choose from... More

We returned here for the second year in a row. The food is outstanding and the price is very reasonable. Cash only and not a lot of sitting space but the staff and food are terrific! I highly recommend the clam chowder and/or the seafood stew. The stew is made to order and out of this world.

Very friendly and personable owner. This small cafe was just right for us to grab some delicious clam chowder as we passed through Portland. We will return!

We made a special trip there and the restaurant is CLOSED. I don't know why or for how long. Too bad. We were really looking forward to a nice meal there.

After a 3 day vacation, we saved the best for last. Their lobster rolls were overflowing with moist and delicious lobster. The creamy and delicious chowder had real big size clams chunks... This was the best meal of our whole vacation.

Once again a TA review proved true. Fresh seafood and large portions. The seared scallops were perfectly cooked and the Haddock was "best fish dinner" my husband ever ate. Small, cash only. Try it if in Portland area

The Lobster Roll was absolutely amazing. Get there when it opens. It's a small joint so be prepared to sit outside. And remember to Tip the employees.

We were here for a quick bite, and realized what a great find. A hidden jewel. Once we put our onion ring order in, you can hearing the chef cut up the onion on the cutting board. Love the freshly cut onion rings! Definitely worth every penny!
