“Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We found Luke's when searching for a restaurant close to our hotel for lunch. It was raining very hard and we did not want to go very far. We had the Noah's Ark which included a lobster roll, crab roll and shrimp roll. Everything was so fresh. My husband and I both like the crab roll the best. It had more flavor than the two other rolls although those were very good as well. The people that worked behind the counter were very helpful and courteous. This is a great place for lunch if you are in the area. It is a little expensive for lunch but we really enjoyed it.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Great food. Small place but worth the stop. The bread was amazing so combining with lobster and crab made it a winner.

“The Bread Completes the Sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Too often the bread drags a sandwich down. Not so at Luke's. seafood portions are okay for lunch portions but probably too small for a full dinner. Consider ordering 2 if you're an eater.

“Like going on vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is the best lunch I have had in Philadelphia. Try the Noah's Ark to sample and share the lobster, crab and shrimp rolls. Delicious. I even bought a t-shirt. Even though it was just lunch I felt like I went on vacation.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I went there on a whim yesterday and was soo happy I did. I got the lobster roll and my husband got the shrimp roll..they were both soooooo good! It came to $27.00 with a bag of chips and bottle of water. I understand why people would say its pricey because of the size of the rolls but its lobster! It was some if the best I have ever had...will def be returning!
