They deliver

I am in Philly for a conference and didn't want to be walking around alone after dark, so I needed delivery. I found Luke's on grubhub.com. The lobster roll is small but is packed with sweet, tender lobster. The clam chowder was a little salty for my tastes, but the oyster crackers helped. The... read more

I have been here numerous times and also a few times at the location in DC. This is a must if you like lobster. One of the things I love about this place is not only are the lobster rolls divine, along with the lobster grilled cheese, but I like that it is a no frills restaurant. There are some... More

This is a little hidden hideaway near rittenhouse that features authentic maine lobster rolls. Its excellent, they say they source their own lobster from Maine. I believe it.

Good food with a delightful ambiance. The lobster roll was a great treat being so far from Maine. You order at the register (there's a menu on the side wall), then go over to the other side to pick up your meal.

Lobster roll, check. Crab roll, check. Clam chowder, check. Lunch, dinner, or snack this place does not disappoint. Second time here in last two years visiting Philly for work. It's a must stop and eat. Everything is delicious. The craft sodas are also really good.

My sister lives not far from this little place. We were out on errands one day and I was like "oh I've never eaten here before". Bad idea if you are hungry! I ended up eating 2 lobster rolls because they are 1. small and 2. probably the best thing you can eat, and I don't even like lobster! A... More

Ok so...lobster roll. Never been here and I'm from out of town. I was closeby & saw all the reviews so I figured I'd try it! I almost missed it. You gotta walk down a few steep stairs into it. I only tried the lobster roll. It's on a hotdog sized roll that seems lightly toasted with a little butter... More

The hubby and I stayed in Philly for the weekend and needed a quick but good bite to eat and found our way here. Super small byob spot but the food was delicious. The crab roll is so fresh and the lobster grilled cheese is a MUST try!

Located right across from the Latham Hotel, this hole in the wall restaurant was a great find. My husband and I ordered the lobster roll and the crab roll and split them. Both were fantastic! The service was great. Reasonably priced considering this wasn't canned lobster and crab meat.
