We are Italian and when we decided to visit the US we thought that we would have had the best hamburger ever in the States. Well, Luke's made us change our mind. The best food I had during my two American weeks was here, at Luke's. Great lobster roll, amazing crab roll. Go there when you have a chance...and get... More

This is a wonderful, quick meal if you like lobster, crab, shrimp and cheese sandwiches! Can have lines to order and small seating area. Highly recommend these sandwiches. Lobster Roll combo run $18, Crab is $15, and Shrimp $ 13. There are combinations available also. Well worth a visit where ever you find one.

If you need a lobster roll fix, and need it soon, get to Lukes. Their clam chowders are excellent as well. Just remember, this is basically a take out place...not much seating.

Best lobster rolls around. Quick, tasty and inexpensive. Typical East Village hole in the wall and worth the visit

Cravings are funny things...when you have an itch you just need to scratch it. When I fancy lobster I've just got to have it. On this trip to NYC I suddenly wanted this snack and started searching for somewhere near where I was staying to find a great Lobster Roll. Thanks to TripAdvisor I ended up at Luke's in the... More

We came here off of a recommendation from our friend. We were SO IMPRESSED! We have never had a lobster roll this delicious before. The chunks of lobster were huge and falling off of the bun! It was so delicious, buttery, and tasty. The bread was slightly toasted, perfect! People complained about the price-Yes, its a little pricey, but it's... More

Although pearl oyster bar will always be my favorite lobster roll, Luke's is completely different and a close second. When I don't feel like a massive blowout I enjoy these small simple rolls. Recommend for anyone who loves lobster!!!

Enjoyed my first lobster roll ever here. Thought they gave me a lot of lobster meat for the $$. The bun was very fresh as well. Thumbs up!

We got our lunch and took it for a picnic in the park. The lobster rolls were sooo delicious. I've been craving another one since we got back, but there's nothing near me to satisfy my craving!
