“small shop huge flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Following the recommendation of a local shopkeep, went to Lukes with my 3 friends...needless to say, we were delighted with our food. The lobsta roll and Shrimp and corn chowder....wonderful. My friends also tried the crab roll and were suitably impressed. The 2 young men who waited on us were pleasnt efficient and just lovely. Don't let the simple facade and small size stop you from enjoying a verrrry good meal.

“No time for a vacation? Come inside!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Just step inside Luke's and you'll feel miles away, on a small island, perhaps in Maine or Massachusetts. Very casual atmosphere - you line up to order. Food is fantastic but a bit pricey, especially given the casual vibe. That said, good seafood is not cheap these days. Enjoy sitting at the bar and eating as well.

“Very, very good lobster rolls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

These are fantastic lobster rolls. Hard to turn down the buttery and messy goodness, and I appreciate the interesting beer and soda choices. If a little more lobster came in each roll, I would have given them a perfect score. Still though, you should go.

Also, hot apple cider in the winter is a great.

“Simply Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Best lunch I've had since who know's when. The lobster rolls are perfect in terms of the lobster and quality of the bread. Almost an emotional experience. The clam chowder came a close second. A little light on on the actual clam but the tast was perfect. Finished all off with crab claws.Would be nice if there was more seating (this one only holds about 10 at a time and it was too cold to sit outside.)

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was craving a lobster roll (having lived in Massachusetts) and I found Luke's Lobster. I was able to call in my order and pick it up quickly. We got the Noah's Ark, which is two lunch boxes filled with half of the shrimp, crab and lobster rolls. Just delicious! The bread was soft and sweet and the meats were definitely the stars of the sandwich. Very little condiments, which is how I remember lobster rolls. It's a little difficult to find, if you're not from the area. The street they are on is actually a pedestrian only street, so park in the garage and you're right there. Also, it is not an eat-in location so be prepared to get your food to go. The employees were very nice and the food delicious. Luke's Lobster is definitely on my to go back to list when I visit DC/MD again.
