“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

TIP: CASH only

OK. I have been on a quest to find the best lobster roll. This trip, this would have to go to The Ocean Roll in Kennebunk at the corner of Portland and Ross. The food truck (not a typo) rolls in from 11a-8p 7 days a week. You can have your roll with or without lettuce and celery. Have hot dogs or fried haddock for the non lobster lover. Good fries as well. Take out to the beach or sit in one of several RED picnic tables by the big RED truck.

“Great Seafood. Excellent Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

This truck parked in a parking lot in front of an old building doesn't look that much from the street, but wait till you taste the lobster rolls and the fresh seafood... fantastic! We ordered by phone 15 minutes ahead of time and then went by to pick the food up. Everything was freshly cooked. The lobster rolls are excellent and less expensive than the Clam Shack on the bridge in Dock Square. The Maine shrimp were delicious, and for $13 there were about 30 of them, can't beat that. They have "half and half" burgers for non seafood lovers, half beef, half bacon... juicy! A great, large meal, for 4 people was under $50. They have picnic tables set up so you can eat by the truck. If you don't order by phone ahead of time, you may wait up to 30 minutes once in line to order. Very busy place. Enjoy!

“Give It A Try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We drive by this "Lunch Wagon" several times a week (in Kennebunk not Kennebunkport) and decided to give it a try rather than fight the Fourth of July traffic and crowds to go to our favorite fried seafood place. We've heard good reviews from friends and we'll add our own positive review to theirs.

We had a fried clam box and a side of fried haddock - cost $28. Prices and quantity are in line with local seafood restaurants. We knew the seafood would be fresh since it comes from a wholesale/retail place where we buy our seafood. The clams and haddock were wonderful. The fries - nothing special - I think they are the frozen type. I'd skip them next time as there was plenty of seafood.

We would not hesitate to go again.

“We LOVE this truck!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

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 of their picnic tables, or we take it back to our motel room to enjoy with cocktails!!!

“Best Lobster roll in Kennebunks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

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.
