Butcher Burger was established in the Spring of 2014, specializing in unique burgers, sandwiches, lobster rolls and fries. Our early roots began on the coast of Maine where we operated a seasonal location before expanding into the Western Mountains of Maine in the ski town of Bethel which continues to operate year-round.

We opened our third location in the Old Port in late 2021 and is fitting in greatly with the Portland foodie scene with its burgers featuring a beef and bacon house patty, Maine lobster rolls, and triple-cooked Butcher fries.

We pride ourselves in supporting local breweries, and are pleased to serve you the very best of what the Maine beer scene has to offer.

Our lobster is locally sourced from lobster boats along the coast of Maine where it is then steamed and hand-picked in house.

All food waste and organic materials at Butcher Burger are composted and donated locally.

Excellent location, amazing food (burgers) and good drinks. The drinks are good. We just had local beer and it was satisfying. The burgers are definitely high tier in taste and quality. These burger meat is well cooked but talk to the employee to see what they can do for you. The employees were very nice and welcoming!Seating is very limited at the time we were here but I would highly recommend trying the burgers here if you can have a seat here. There is outdoor seating during the summer but during the spring/cold weather, there is very limited seating indoors.The fries were delicious! The sauce was amazing as well. Excellent quality food here. I would definitely come back to eat here again.

I got what was nominated as “The best cheeseburger in Maine”. I’m from Texas, we know our meat, and I can truly say this was an amazing burger. I got caramelized onions on it instead of raw. The buns are Hawaiian sweet rolls. Super delicious. The fries are great as they are cooked three times and gluten free!!! Caitlin was our server and was super nice, sweet, helpful, attentive, informative and absolutely welcoming to us three coworkers here from out of state. Definitely come eat here.

Delicious little eatery. Not a lot of seating room, but we went during off hours so got a seat at the bar. The waitress was very friendly and was chatting with us about the local scene as we are from Maryland. I got the lobster roll and it was incredible! Felt reasonably priced and great quality! The burger was excellent too, lots of great choices!

The Portland burger game is strong, but Butcher Burger is A+. I feel guilty as a local that this was my first visit. Service was fantastic, respectable cocktail, but this burger was off the charts....OFF THE CHARTS... My only issue is a personal preference...I like my fries super crisp and I ordered salt and vinegar. They were a solid B+ but I'm particular. Can't wait to go back.

I thoroughly enjoyed my burger. I ordered the Butcher burger. The moisture from the pulled pork was great. The fried egg ontop added some good texture to the burger. The sauce was a nice touch as well. The fries were cooked perfectly. I still think about them. My friends enjoyed their chicken sandwiches. My only concern is that the wait staff seemed very short staffed for a Friday night. This was a month ago. There were about 10 parties and seemed like there were only 2 waiters. Maybe someone had called out. Despite this, my waitress served our group to the best of her ability.
