Bite Into Maine food truck outside of Portland

Recommended Posts

Hello, we will be coming into Portland on the Serande and want to have lunch at the Bite Into Maine food truck. Does anyone know the best way to get there besides renting a car? Uber? Lift? Bus?

 

Thank so much!

Taxi to Fort Williams is about $20 each way, Uber $10 each way. Personally, I'd stay intown, there are lots of food trucks in Portland, and lots of fine restaurants within walking of the pier. For lobster or a lobster roll, I'd go to High Roller up Exchange street (1/4 mile from pier), and get great selection of local craft beers as well.

We really like the views of the lighthouse and eating right by the ocean. Plus, they get 5 stars on Yelp :)

 

We tried them two years ago and they were GREAT! 30+ minute wait in line though.

You get better views of the lighthouse when coming into port early in the morning, IMHO. Better views down Casco Bay through the islands from the Eastern Prom, about 1/4 mile from the pier, where you could take your food from High Roller(4.5), Becky's Diner(4), or Portland Lobster (3.5). Fort Williams is nice to visit if you're local, not sure I'd spend the time to go there with a limited visit to Portland. Again, JMHO.

We did a "Lobster Roll Quest" this past spring, BIM was one of 12 we tried and rated towards the bottom.

Oh no! Who was the best? Price for roll or lobster dinner?

Check Bite of Maine schedule before making the trip because they are not going to be at the Brewery when we go in October. Need to do some research on High Roller!

Probably the ultimate lobster roll is at Boone's Fish House on the waterfront, it is the entire meat (tail, claws, knuckles) of a 1-1/4 lb lobster, for $32.

 

Most rolls go for $16-18.

Red's Eats was the best by far. Not cheap, but it's huge and tons of tail meat.

 

 

#2 was closer to #10 than it was to #1 in quality.

 

 

Belle Isle in Winthrop, MA (on the East Boston border, near Logan Airport) is the second best in New England.

 

I've got a list of about 40 Lobster Rolls that I am constantly adding to and updating.

Is Reds near the port? I’m dying to try it.

Bite has a year round store front in Scarborough. Quick uber from the port. Great lobster rolls. Forget Reds.
