Great Seafood! But not cheap! But who would expect cheap seafood anyway?

I had the crab roll and the lobster roll and they were heavenly! Yes, they were chilled but I was not expecting hot lobster on a plate. This is not a sit down type place its more of a grab a great seafood sandwich and go type place. They run about $8 to $10 bucks a piece but I think... read more

I thought the Lobster Roll was fantastic. I do not eat Lobster Rolls very often but I found for the prices to be quite steep, for the amount of food I ate. But if you are dying to try a traditional, delicious, Lobster Roll. This would be the place.

These lobster rolls are absolutely delicious! Everyone in the family loves them. The four of us went through 11 of them in the same day for lunch and dinner. Since we can't find anything like them in upstate N.Y. and we are 12 hours from Maine, we make sure we get our fill when visiting the kids in Bethesda!

Had the lobster roll and crab roll. Both were tasty. I preferred the lobster which tasted very fresh. It was a tasty snack but for over $40, it seemed like we had just eaten an appetizer and actually had to order another meal next door at le pain quotidian. So if you want a tast snack and money is not... More

Lunch at Luke's in Bethesda was a tasty experience. Being originally from Boston I have searched the DC area for a truly good lobster roll. You can find it at Luke's. The roll is expertly toasted and the lobster chunks are fresh and plentiful. The New England clam chowder is excellent.....full of lots of clams and potatoes, and deliciously seasoned.... More

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
