“A Taste of Maine in Maryland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

If you love "lobsta", crab and shrimp then this place is for you! Served on true New England style buns, these seafood delicacies are fresh & delicious. Their creamy clam chowder is great as are the meaty crab claws. Their handcrafted "Maine Root" drinks come in 6 flavors: root beer, mexicane cola, blueberry, ginger brew, diet cola & lemonade. My wife & I especially liked the blueberry. Their indoor seating is limited & there are tables & benches in a covered outdoor area. Jason & Chad said that they'll have heating lamps for when it gets colder. Carryouts are available. They've only been open 4 months, but we wish them every success. The next time we're in Bethesda, we'll stop by for another delicious taste of Maine.

“Good Clam Chowder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

It's a good alternative to other fast food chains.
I had a good clam chowder. It had lots of seafood. It was very tasty and it's a good value for money.

“Good for a chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

It's a very small place with a few seats inside and some big tables outside. It's located in a nice area.
I had a clam chowder. It had lots of seafood. It was terrific!
My husband had a lobster roll that was also delicious.
I think that is a good alternative to other chains (sandwich or burgers). It has quality.

“Casual place to grab a bite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is a good addition to Bethesda's lengthy list of good restaurants. The food is fresh, service is on time and price is right.

“If you are tired of meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Luke's is an alternative to the meat based fast food, here you can (fast) eat shrimp, crab or lobster in rolls while seated outside (do not know what they have in mind for the winter time).
Food is good for us, not overwhelmed by sauces, you can also ask to avoid butter and/or mayo and that's also good.
I underline that obviously the price is far more expensive than a fast food but yes you are eating lobster. We spent $37 for 3 rolls (1 lobster + 2 shrimp), 3 sodas (too big?) and 3 chips (too small?).
Maybe give the option of a salad aside the rolls would be appreciated by guests, I guess.
