Only spent one night in Maine so was looking for a good lobster roll. Highroller did not disappoint. The lobster ghee was excellent, good fries too. Wish I had a chance to sample the extensive beer menu.

We came with an agenda (besides escaping the heat) to Maine in search of the best loster roll. High roller was the concensus for the best basic lobster roll. Very fresh and lots of loster.

Food quality was above average. Large selection of flavors for mayonnaise on lobster roll. Good burger. Lobster grilled cheese good but lobster tacos were not a good choice. Lobster quality as good as any we had over four days of lobster.

Late night dinner; lobster roll was fresh and filling but flavors were nothing special. The cheese and lobster sandwich was probably the best item we ordered. Customer service was NOT their specialty :-(

Highroller came highly recommended. Order at the counter, get a number and food is brought to you. Efficient system. Well maintained 50s décor. Food is very good, but have better lobster rolls elsewhere in Portland.
