“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

“Lobster to go! Great meal at a fair price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Stopped in with my co-workers to grab dinner to go. Previous reviews were good so we gave it a try. It was Great! I had the Taste of Maine, which covered Half roll's of Lobster, Shrimp & Crab. Also came with 2 Empress Claws. A bag of chips and some really good Root beer. The other drinks were good According to my coworkers. If you like seafood give it a try, I enjoyed it and the Maine rolls were really added to the taste.
