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

This is a food truck and not a restaurant, that being said the lobster rolls were excellent each of the 5 days I visited the truck. There is about 6 picnic tables with umbrellas if you want to eat there, which I recommend if you are getting the hot lobster rolls. The staff was very friendly and the orders were... More

For the reviews on TA and the price I thought I would get more. The lobster roll was tiny. I wouldn't come here again to pay this. The roll tasted good and the lobster tasted fresh, but I left hungry.

Sorry we dissappointed you on the size of the lobster roll. Its on Maine hot dog roll with a 4 oz ice cream scoop of lobster meat. Please stop by again and let the girls know and I am sure they can make it up to you!! More

The seafood here is outstanding and everyone writes about it. The people that run this truck are super friendly and accommodating too! I was served by Debbie today and she makes it fun.

Best fried scallops I've had in a long time! I ordered the side order with just lemon and it was a good amount. I unfortunately didn't get back to try other things but they all looked good. The couple who were waiting with me were commenting how the guy had been there everyday. They have a few tables near the... More

I am so glad you liked the scallops. We use only fresh "dry" ( not soaked in water to add weight) scallops from Maine or Nova Scotia. Its the only way to go if you want a good fried scallop. Thank You More
