Great lobster roll!

Terrific lobster roll. Serve in a southern Maine style, buttered, toasted bun, stuffed with lobster meat. Topped with a bit of Old Bay...that must be the Maryland touch! Love it. In good weather there are outdoor tables so I take my dog.

It's a seafood roll fast food restaurant . Not fancy but the three roll sample ; lobster, shrimp, crab was very good, and with drink and chips was $20. The young people working there were exceptional! Friendly, and helpful about the area and the menu. Recommended.

My wife and I stopped at this place to grab a quick bite while she sought a cupcake place. My standards for Lobster Rolls are rather high after experiencing my first one at Red's Eats in Wascuassit, Maine. Although the Roll here was good, it fell far short of that one. My wife stated that the shrimp roll was outstanding... More

I looked at TripAdvisor for a place to meet for lunch in Bethesda - and Luke's caught my eye. Had never tried it, and a real bonafide lobster roll can be hard to come by in the DC area. I had the Taste of Main (half of each type of roll) and my companion had a lobster roll. Almost as... More

When you have a chain of lobster roll places that are a hundred plus miles from the sea you are taking a chance. The food is ok but pricey, it lacks the zest of morning fresh caught lobster. The t-shirts are however outstanding and I have several. Walking by the place will still suck me in a couple of times... More

True New England Lobster salad - light on the mayo. Fresh Fresh Fresh. Outdoor seating (a few seats inside but cramped) - best Maine Lobster in the DC Area.

If you're looking for upscale 'fast food' at a reasonable price in a great location, this is it! I used Trip Advisor to locate a place for a quick stop and found Luke's. I needed a very light dinner so I ordered a half lobster roll. It was so chock full of large chunks of tender, juicy lobster that I... More

I discovered Luke's Lobster rolls on a whim as I was walking through Bethesda Row at lunchtime. I saw a woman sitting at a picnic table eating what I thought was a lobster roll, so I immediately turned to my right and saw Luke's Lobster. It was an "Ah ha" moment! I went inside, ordered my lobster roll, went back... More

We "discovered" Luke's Lobster rolls at the Taste of DC event. It was excellent then, and its excellent now. Though not inexpensive, the lobster roll is worth every penny considering how fresh the lobster is and how much meat they give you. We also like the Lobster bisque Be aware that this is not a "restaurant" in the traditional sense,... More
