Description: Our DC location opened its doors on May 26, 2011 -- it's our first location outside Manhattan! We serve the same Maine-style menu -- lobster, crab and shrimp rolls, and bisque and chowder -- in a Down East-inspired shack.

“Expensive fast food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This restaurant serves "fast food" - but charges restaurant prices. The food is decent (e.g. lobster sandwich) but over priced (e.g. $8-10 for a cup of soup).

“Nice rolls but rather overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Tried the lobster roll, which I guess was the signature dish. Portion was rather small but it was delicious. It was very popular.

“Great Lobster Rolls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

A quick lunch after Georgetown Univ. Graduation, and our hosts took us to Luke's. A small 'hole in the wall' type of place, only a few seats and not a big variety....BUT, the Lobster Rolls were delicious, all six of us had one, with not one complaint. The lobster was plentiful, and not overwhelmed by mayo or butter, very simple and quite good. Worth the visit.
