High roller was recommended to me by two family members in the Portland area and it did not disappoint. I got a Junior Roll with Ghee, bacon Mac. My partner got the burger. He doesn’t eat any seafood and As he put it “it’s amazing I can go to a seafood place and have amazing great quality meal there”. Mac was amazing. Lobster was delicious, tender, buttery. The vibe was awesome too - went while they were decorated for Christmas. The staff were cool.Iced tea wasn’t sweetened but a shot of simple syrup did the trick.
Went for dinner with my husband and it was excellent! We got the coconut lobster skewers, which were very tasty and not tough from being fried. I got the lobster roll warmed and it was stuffed full. Lobster was sweet and tender. My husband had the fish and chips. The fish was very good and the batter was nice and light. Sauces were great, especially for dipping fries in!
This was my first lobster roll ever, and I was absolutely NOT disappointed! We got there in time for their happy hour so of course I got a $5 Margarita which was great, and my food was delicious. Worth every penny. I usually don't really like fries but the Old Bay seasoning made the whole meal a 10/10. Service, atmosphere, and overall vibe were really nice too. If you (like me) only have a short bit of time in Portland, make sure to stop by Highroller!Also a side note, this place is right next to a parking garage so getting here was super easy.
I enjoyed every lobster roll but I think this is probably the best and fresh lobster roll I’ve ever had.Perfectly toasted brioche bun that has fresh shredded romaine lettuce and fresh claw & knuckle on top. My sauce choice was drawn butter. Simple but very flavorful. Lobster roll Junior (2 oz) was a perfect portion for me.Every staff at the restaurant was very friendly and had great vibes. Worth the wait!
Oh. My. Goodness. Some of the best lobster we had in Maine. Dine in had a long wait so probably best to make a reservation. We got food to go and it was incredible. The lobster grilled cheese was delicious and the lobster roll flight was just 🤤🤤. A little pricey but worth it!!
This place lives up to the hype! From checking in to the gift shop… service all around was excellent. Got there around 1230pm on a Saturday and had to wait roughly 1 hour. Explored the nearby area, walked down to the water and came back to the table being ready.Sitting at the counter, the service was even better and super quick. Got the full size lobster roll with drawn butter - it comes chilled w/ warm butter. It - was - so - good. Perfectly buttered and perfect size. My only regret was not getting another one to-go (which btw they have a whole Togo section in the gift shop).
The lobster roll was the star here. So fresh and flavorful. A very saucy roll and the assortment of sauces available allow for customization to fit every flavor demand.The fish sandwich was the runner up. Pleasant crunch and came out hot and steamy. The flakiness of the fish was excellent and perfectly fried.The lobster pop was a unique way to eat the lobster. Definitely messes with your mind as you expect a firm sausage to be inside, but you get soft lobster meat cooked perfectly, and the cornbread batter was great. It was definitely worth a try, not sure if it’s for me though in this unique combination.The fries came out hot and crisp, just as they should be.The lime Mayo was a stunner of a sauce. Wish I could drink that by the gallon.
Amazing and a must go to if you visit Portland. I loved the mac and cheese lobster, lobster rolls are awesome, wish there was a warm option but still very good. I tried the take out while waiting for the table, expect long table waits.
We had a lobster roll platter with three different rolls. What's great about this place is you get to pick what sauce you want on the roll. Variety is excellent. The lobster bisque was incredible with huge chunks of lobster. The french fries are shoestring and crispy. Delicious with Old Bay seasoning.
Hands-down best lobster roll in Portland. Sat at the bar and the bartender was attentive and friendly. Gave me some great suggestions on other places to visit also. If you only get the chance to try one place out in Portland, this is it! You won’t be disappointed.
Very cool place with good lobster! We ordered the lobster roll (of course), surf and turf burger (delicious!), lobby pop fried (ok… prob better if it was naked), and kids Mac n cheese (a bit too rich). The atmosphere of the place is casual but it was a bit expensive for what we got. It was all great tasting though. Note that you have get up and order from the counter.
Great selection of lobster dishes, from lobster rolls, to lobster tacos, to lobster pops. Service was friendly and prompt. A bit of a wait to get in for two of us on a Saturday afternoon, but well worth it. We enjoyed everything we tried. Lobster flight (pineapple, jalapeno, butter), lobster taco with cheese and bacon shell, and fries.
Best meal we’ve had in our trip to Portland!The Lobster grilled cheese was amazing! The sweet potato fries were cooked and seasoned perfectly. My wife loved the cheese shell taco with Warmed buttered lobster… it was our perfect Portland Lobster meal!
Loved the lobster rolls and the choice of sauces - adding the lobster butter was a total game changer.Only complaint that I have is that I wasn't a fan of the ordering system where you have to order on your phone. I ordered a beer with dinner and it would have been nice if it came out earlier, before the food.
The hype is real for Highroller! Fantastic lobster rolls at very reasonable prices. The staff was incredibly genuine, helpful and kind. There is outdoor seating, but the indoor dining room has awesome vibes! Retro booths and high top tables are bathed in light from a disco ball. The bar has plenty of draft options and great cocktails. If you like your experience, they have an excellent gift shop!
We 2 lobster rolls. One with lime Mayo and the other with garlic Mayo. I preferred the lime, but both rolls were really tasty with a solid amount of lobster. Staff was fast and friendly. My only wish is that fries or chips had been included. For how expensive the rolls are, and how cheap chips are, it would be nice if they had thrown them in.
Best lobster roll ive ever had. I came here in 2020 and finally got to go back and it was even better than I remembered. I think its the type of roll they use and their awesome selection of sauces. I had the charred pineapple mayo and it was so yummy. I also got the lobster pop. Really affordable prices for lobster. Really cool vibe. The place does need a deep cleaning, the bathrooms especially, but other than that i loved it.
I can see why this is one of the best lobster 🦞 roll places. The toasted butter roll is so great, I wish the lobster meat was hot like Eventide. If Eventide brown butter lobster and Highroller buns make a baby will make the best baby lobster roll in my opinion! I had the lemon sauce which was recommended by the host at the take-out counter. Definitely worth stopping by. The line can be long like many great places in Portland ME.
First time visitor from Texas. I ordered the lobster roll and it was absolutely INCREDIBLE. One of the tastiest meals I have ever eaten. It’s not cheap at 28 bucks, but it’s 4 Oz of spectacular lobster. Truly a treat to yourself. I ordered three oysters as well, and they were awesome as well. Great service. The people were very friendly and recommended a few spots i check out in town. Maine Lobster…the hype is real!
Loved our experience at Highroller!Service: 10/10 - order on your phoneValue: 7/10 - lobster rolls and Maine in general are just expensive!Vibe: 10/10Lobster roll: 9.5/10 - I only wish there was more! Love the sauce options as wellBurger: 8.5/10Caesar salad: 8.5/10Overall: 8.91/10 (4.45/5)
Great vibe and decor - very clean...upbeat and helpful staff... The lobster roll was delicious with the recommended jalapeno lime mayo and lobster ghee... Oysters were shocked perfectly and the minionet interpretation was serranos was great! On the price your side but overall really great experience!!
Absolutely delicious but really expensive. Understandably so, I suppose for the quality. Loved the classic lobster roll. We asked to have it warmed up and it was perfect. We also had a lobster roll flight. Portions on both were very good. The sauces we chose were the standard butter, lime Mayo, and garlic Mayo. The lime Mayo was light and refreshing. Garlic Mayo was creamy and a bit heavier. Buttered was just ok. I liked the other sauces better. Would definitely go back to try the other kinds!
We went for a quick lunch during a road trip with friends.Service is kind and quick, you can order from the counter or from a QR code website, the latter was our choice, experience was painless.The food took a bit to arrive but was delicious, the Lobster Cheese Crisp Taco was our choice and it is amazing. Sauce selection is also very good with some well-executed twists on the classics. Portions are a bit small for the USA but appropriate.We didn't try the drinks.Price is high, but still in line with the kind of food they offer.
High roller lobster Co. In Portland was an amazing find. This place is extremely well known and serves up a variety of delicious bites. Known for their locally caught lobster, I promise you won't be disappointed. I came here recently and completely fell in love. Look for the red and white stripes with a mob of people out front, and you will know you are at the correct place. We needed seating for 4 and we didn't wait long. We were able to get a table in the back patio area. For a drink, I chose the classic margarita in a bucket. Tasty! We got the baker’s dozen of oysters for the table as an appetizer. 3 different types of oysters locally sourced in Maine. It also came with 2 mignonettes and your classic cocktail sauce. All were fantastic! I went with the lobster roll flight for my meal, and it did not disappoint. It came with 3 mini lobster rolls, and you choose your sauce. I went with the drawn butter, garlic mayo, and charred pineapple mayo. Literally SPEECHLESS! The rolls were savory, buttered, and grilled to a nice golden brown. Added to the rolls was just a touch of shredded lettuce, topped with lobster and your sauces of choice. My favorite was the drawn butter! The garlic mayo was also super flavorful and put a nice twist on your standard mayo. The charred pineapple added a sweetness and was also delish. I will definitely be back here to enjoy another lobster roll flight because I cannot stop thinking about it!
The most delicious lobster rolls we had. The house special sauces that the staff recommended were amazing. Down to earth place with very friendly staffs
Get ready to stuff your face! Be prepared to "shell out" some bucks (pun intended). We had a hard time picking just one item off the menu. This was our third trip to HR so we decided to double down. We'll worth the price of admission. The lime mayo is (chef's kiss).. I got the cheese taco but the cheese was slightly soft so it didn't crunch as much as I hoped. Still would get it again though. If you're looking for raw oysters, the bar has some locally sourced offerings.
Great experience here! Lobster was fresh and the sauces are awesome, loved the lobster ghee and jalapeño mayo. Staff was super friendly, and I love their mobile ordering system. Service was excellent as well. The lobster rolls are quite pricey, at $45 for a trio of minis, but the quality of the food backs it up. Def give this place a try!
Surf and mother F%~€king Turf Burger! We saw this joint on man vs food! All the sauces were ?????this was one of the best meals in Portland Maine! My son loved the merchandise. Thanks y’all.
Everything about this place is awesome, even the music was on point. We had a lobster grilled cheese, sweet potato fries, will be pie and lobster roll. The jalapeño and pineapple mayo was incredible. One of the best lobster rolls I had in Maine, and will be returning the staff was very friendly.
During my week-long visit to Portland, I had the pleasure of discovering a hidden gem recommended for its exquisite lobster rolls. Highroller surpassed all expectations. Seated at the inviting bar, we indulged in expertly crafted cocktails while savoring a delightful lobster roll flight. The flight featured a tantalizing array of accompanying sauces, each adding its own touch of culinary brilliance. It was an unforgettable dining experience.

A must visit when we are in Portland. We came back to the city just for this! I love the raw oysters and the lobster rolls. Beers are good too!Come with plenty of time because there will be a wait. Well worth it.
The best meal I had in Portland and the competition is steep. The lobster roll was perfect & I highly recommend the lime mayo sauce. Additionally they have a fantastic beer list and the vibe of the place was fun. Service was great; you place your order through the QR code site, which I prefer.
Fresh oysters, right as you walk into the place. Outside seating both in front and put back on the patios.Live music was happening while we were there.The haddock sando was delicious, and the basket of fries had Ole bay seasoning.My friend got the lobster pop and oyster and both looked amazing.
I visited High Roller for the first time this week, though I've known of it (and its well-deserved popularity) for some time. The occasion was the Portland Wurst Week Ever hot dog crawl - a very fun event! I ordered oysters, which were outstanding with a clean shuck and fantastic flavor accomplished by a great pomegranate mignonette that paired perfectly with the oysters. Though they offered regular hot dogs for the event, I got their special hot dog with lobster. It was far better than it had any right to be. OMG but it was so good! I know, it sounds weird, but especially with the lobster ghee as the sauce, couldn't have been any better.I only have three stars for service, but that is only because it is more of a counter service situation rather than wait people taking orders. However, everyone was very nice and friendly and efficient.
Portland in general has amazing food, but Highroller has us wanting to come back to Portland asap! We LOVED the lobster grilled cheese and highroller burger. The lobster lolipop was just okay. The sauces though... don't skimp on the sauces. They are so flavorful and amazing.
The restaurant had a diner vibe to it but more trendy. My family and I ordered the lobster rolls Connecticut style with the old bay fries. Wow just wow. I loved the garlic mayo and the warmed lobster. The bread was crunchy and well buttered. We left with full bellies and smiles. We recommend this to any other tourists who are looking for a delicious lobster roll.
Excellent warm lobster roll and Old Bay fries!! Pricing was average based on the amount of lobster. The frose was a wonderful treat on a warm day; really felt like I was on vacation.The hostess at the front was very kind and good at managing multiple groups of people at the same time, even accommodating someone who had a dog which meant they needed to meet them around back.We sat outside which was really nice as the weather was beautiful. Inside had a cool vibe as well. Bathrooms were clean. I would definitely eat here again!
I was visiting from Utah and found this great place for Maine Lobster! The Lobster Mac and cheese was the greatest thing on earth! Seriously! The Lobster roll with mayo and lime sauce was hands down, one of the best things I have ever tasted! If I'm ever in the Portland area again, I will definitely be back! ?
FoodIf you ever want to find a good lobster roll, look no further. My friend recommended this place and said it is better than eventide. I absolutely agreed. The high roller lobster roll is way more flavourful, which is what we want for a lobster roll, otherwise it is boiled lobster with bread.Everything elseThe decor is like every other fast food chain with a spin. Service was great.

Best lobster I have ever had in my life! I was not sure about the place but I asked the 3 customers that came out. They told us it's the best ever and they drove 5 hours for this place we were convinced. We had a wait to get seated but once we sat down, the ordering process is easy. Scan the qr code, pay and the food comes out. This is the most delicious lobster I have ever had. I would recommend the larger 4oz and cooked warm instead of cold.
There is not a better place in Maine to get a lobster roll, if you're interested in unique or interesting flavor combinations. You can't go wrong. Everything they do is very high-quality, and it shows because the place is always very busy. I recommend trying as many of their sauces as you can, even if it's just on fries, and noting which ones are the best for next time. It's expensive, but average priced for lobster. Parking can be difficult, I recommend going north and east by a block or two to find the easiest spots.
The wait is worth it! The lobster rolls were delicious and they offer a flight so you can try more than one. They also have a great beer menu! Delicious food, fun environment and quick service as you place your order via the toast app, which they provide a bar code for your table.
This place is is hands down the best lobster roll in Portland Maine. The bun is toasted well, lobster is extra fresh, and the sauces are the best part. If you love butter you have to try their lobster ghee.I’ve been here multiple times and the staff has always been extremely nice and friendly. Every time I have visitors come visit bringing them to high roller is a must! Try it if your here, you won’t be disappointed.
One of the best places to visit in Portland. Delicious, fresh lobster rolls that come in a variety of sauces. The new surf and turf (burger with lobster) is amazing. Fries with the old bay seasoning is the perfect side. I don't know about the other dishes because if you're not eating lobster here, you're doing it wrong. The different sauces they have are all worth a try. My personal favorites are the garlic mayo, the jalapeno mayo, and the curry mayo.
The food is amazing!! This was BY FAR our favorite restaurant in Maine. We had the lobby Pop, lobster roll, Bloody Mary (so good!) and my husband had the oysters, which he said were the best ever. Our kids also loved their hamburger and chicken poppers. For dessert we had the whopper pies and they were incredible. The servers were fun and friendly and we couldn’t have enjoyed our experience more.
Amazing. The vibe is awesome, the service was friendly and helpful and food and drinks were top notch.You order via your phone or the bar yet you constantly feel helped by everyone. The lobster rolls were so tasty and full of delicate lobster meat and tasty sauces to try. We also tried the lobster on a stick which was fun and tasty. Drinks were equally as excellent. A must try in Portland!
Solid place to go when in Portland, Maine. There’s plenty of seating both in and outside with hardly any wait time. The style of the menu is straightforward so you know what you’re ordering, with pictures accompanying the mobile menu ordering site. The two ways of ordering makes for a fairly efficient system (either order and pay through phone or traditional order). The food comes out at a reasonable time and was hot (what’s more to love?). Service is great just keep in mind that it isn’t your typical sit and dine restaurant with an assigned waiter. I had no complaints and will be thinking about their lobby pop until I return.
If you’re looking for delicious lobster, this is it.Our first time in Maine and trying various rolls and lobster in itself, this was definitely a top choice. The meat was fresh and the sauces were great, especially the one with a hint of pineapple. In comparison to other places, the roll was my favorite. There is an option to order two different sizes. The lobster lobbypop is a light snack as it is a small amount of lobster meat for about $20. The prices aren’t definite as it’s sold for market value. The prices of crab meat may vary, depending on the market value.The vibe was good, and the food was great. The data made it harder out there to order via phone in the restaurant but it was a quick fix by going over to bar and ordering. Also, be ready to wait a bit before entering the restaurant as they take your number and text you when a seat is available.Will definitely be returning to this establishment when we visit again for their delicious lobster rolls and sauces!
If you are downtown and want an excellent little spot I would highly recommend the Highroller. I won't pretend to be a lobster roll expert but I absolutely loved their rolls. They have multiple sauce options which really added to the flavor. Ask for a couple on the side to find which one you like best. You won't be disappointed. They also have a large outdoor area which is well shaded and good for enjoying the fresh coastal air.
Opened promptly at 11AM and started doing a good business immediately! In addition to tables outdoors in front they have a patio out back. Best feature is that you can get a 2oz. lobster roll for $17 if you don't want to pay over $30 for a full one. QR code ordering from outside if you want or pay cash at counter. Great quality for a tourist spot!
Starting from the tastefully designed logo, everything about this place is different and unique. It has a very upbeat atmosphere and the lobster rolls are incredible. Their take on a menu is also much different, instead of text Highroller uses imagery. Compared to other places to get a lobster roll in Portland, this one is extremely good for the money.The store is also great, very unique merchandise and designs. Will definitely be going back!
Fantastic restaurant with a 70s appeal. I walked in and it feels just like johnny rockets. Everything is electronic. Order on the app and pay on the app. The staff was super friendly and very welcoming. The lobster rolls were delicious. You must try it here! I say one of the best in town to be honest. Wish I got more food while I was there. Will definitely go back.
We made it just in time for happy hour. (4pm-6pm). Took advantage of the $2 oysters and the house margaritas. Also threw in some jello shots. Very tasty! The surf and turf high roller burger was beyond amazing. Definitely get the 8oz patty as it will balance out the amount of lobster it's topped with. I got lemon mayo, garlic mayo and lobster ghee. Definitely will hit this spot if I'm ever in Maine again.
Love the restaurant vibes, food and service. We got a lobster roll and one of their burgers with fries- both items were DELICIOUS. The lobster roll was cooked perfectly and meshed well with the bread, 10/10. The burger was also cooked well and tasted great. They also allowed a lot of customization on menu items and had a variety of sauces (another pro)I would give it a 4.7 if I were able to- overall GREAT experience and also great food! My only con is that a lobster roll was close to $40, which is quite pricey in my opinion. The food is worth it, more so if it's your first time trying a lobster roll!
Got here right at 11 when they opened because we had a 1pm flight. We were in and out in 30 minutes. Easy ordering and paying right on your phone. I ordered the lobster roll and it was delicious. Not as amazing as the one I had at Red's Eats with all that lobster meat years ago but extremely satisfying. Fries were excellent and the jalapeño mayo was fabulous. Super happy with my last meal in the area and I like the low key casual vibe. Highly recommend!
First time here and WOW! First off, the lobster roll is by far the best thing I’ve ever had! A must have if when visiting Maine!The bread was warm and toasted, the lobster was chilled to perfection and the garlic mayo really hit the spot! The bay fries & coleslaw was also delicious! I will absolutely be back!Service was great! Greeted and seated immediately upon arrival, easy ordering system and reasonable prices! A MUST TRY!
The High Roller Food truck was a huge hit at our wedding. Trevor was very organized and responsive during our planning process and helped us curate the perfect menu for our guests. The crew did a great job getting in and out of our venue and serving our wedding guests quickly. The food was very tasty, and many of our guests commented on how good everything was! We were able to taste test the food at their restaurant in Portland, which aided in our decision in hiring them. We highly recommend the High Roller food truck!
From when you first walk in this is the sort of atmosphere you want when you're dining in Portland. First time here and can say the staff were able to answer any and all questions with a smile and personality. The food was picture perfect and tasted even better! Great selection of beers and drinks that could have kept us up there all night.The one thing I'll address is that people seem to write negative reviews about the price. Yes it's not McDonalds and you aren't paying $5 for your lobster roll. This is some of the freshest lobster you will have in your life and that comes with a price tag. I certainly didn't think it was overpriced or even that expensive to be honest. You get what you pay for and what you get is some of the best dining in Portland!!!
Pricey, and there is always a wait... but it's a really cool "50s diner meets crab shack" vibe inside, and an equally eclectic menu. Lobster pops are good, as is really everything we tried.Wait-list for a table, as well as ordering and paying are all online so it's very efficient.I recommend making a stop here.
Wow this place is incredible! My wife and I stopped here on the recommendation of our hotel receptionists, we were not disappointed!We got the rum punch bucket which was delicious! I got the lobster roll which was awesome! My wife got the lobster burger which was also amazing.You have the ability to order and pay for your meal through their website. It's an interesting concept but very efficient, they just bring your food and drink right to you at your table. It's a bit expensive, but it is in a tourist town so you have to expect that. Overall very happy!
This place is a whole vibe. Food was great. Service was decent. Super cute decor. Loved it. Tried oysters for the first time and my life has been changed. ? Just check it out! ??
My 1st ever lobster roll! I've been eating lobster many years but never tried a lobster roll. As a foodie, I thought my 1st should be in Maine!! After trying a couple others in Portland ME...I say this is the BEST!! The buttery roll and variety of sauces (I mixed garlic mayo and melted butter) not to mention super fresh, huge chunks of lobster....all make this the best lobster roll ever???♥️♥️♥️
