“Best lobster roll in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Small restaurant in the main Bethesda restaurant/shopping area. If you can get past the crazy parking situation, Luke's is worth it. Not cheap, but well worth $17 for a top flight lobster roll. Service is fast and eating outside on the benches is a good way to dine. There's about 25 restaurants within a 1,000 yard radius -- if you want fancy, go somewhere else. For an authentic lobster roll, this is the place.

“Great lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I got the combo that included the shrimp, crab, and lobster rolls. The lobser roll was by far the best one. They are a little on the expensive side but lobster is never cheap.

great place for a quick bite to eat

“Great lobster roll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

It was my best lunch while in Bethesda. Lobster rolls are great and hits just the right spot. It's a take out with a bar counter and some outside seating. Perfect for a quick and satisfying meal.

What i had was delish, even though the portion size wasn't very large. Very small space inside and lost of space outside. Unfortunately, it was raining while i was there.

“If You Can, You'd Be Better Off Driving To Maine”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Rubbery lobster is not my thing. These tails are cooked and frozen far away (as Mainer's say, you're "from away"), then reheated in the tiny prep area. Nothing, even lobster, stands a chance with that prep method. Fill the gas tank, pullout the EZPass and head north.
