This is a cute little quaint place that is worth going out of your way for. The clam chowder was the best I have ever had!

I'm glad that they have stores in other states. I tried it once in Philly and was so happy to know they have it in NYC when i was there. Personally i love their lobster roll and clam chowder. I tried the tastes of maine where it came with half roll of lobster, crab and shrimp as well as 2... More

This little place is great. On a side street in the financial district of NY Luke's Lobster is exactly that, Lobster! Lobster rolls(sandwich) are packed FULL of lobster not just a little bit. I had a lobster roll with the NE clam chowder and the wife had the lobster grilled cheese...we only wish we had larger stomachs! It's a small... More

I was excited to try my first lobster roll but left disappointed. The roll was small in comparison to the price. The lobster portion was generous and fairly tasty but I wasn't expecting it to be served cold and I didn't like the contrast to the hot buttery roll. It lacked a little flavour and didn't justify the price (to... More

Frankly, I loveeee their lobster and crab rolls so much. Although I haven't tried many, but the ones they have here is goood. Although it comes in a small portion, but since I had lobster brisque as well so it's quite filling. Get ready for the long queuing, though, particularly during lunch hours. But it won't be more than 15... More

In my opinion, Luke's has the best lobster rolls in NYC. I've been going to the original East Village shop since it opened and it has never let me down! The rolls are filled with loads of super fresh chunks of lobster meat, with just the right amount of mayo and seasoning. The brioche is buttery and toasted to perfection... More

FRUGAL FOODIES:This truck is a find! Curbside deliciousness on a roll ( literally and figuratively ) transport s you to Maine. Stand on Broadway near Lincoln Center and look for the truck decorated with lobsters. Sundays, 'rid lobster runs out. Overflowing rolls, toasted to perfection with hints of melted butter ensure the best deal in NYC - with the flavor... More

Absolutely delicious. So good. I had the lobster roll and it was to die for. DO not miss this spot. Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had.

This was the first time I ate at Luke's lobster but not the last one! I took the 3 sandwiches: lobster, shrimp and crab. All of them were really delicious, great dressing - and I am usually not fond of shrimps. 20 USD with a soda and crisps A place to recommend
