“Quick & Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Saw a review for Luke's and had to try it for myself. I had the lobster roll and lobster bisque. They were both perfect. No heavy mayonnaise, just delicious pieces of whole lobster. Portions were perfect! If you like seafood, you must stop here!!!

Great lobster roll and soup. A little pricier than I would have liked but it was great food. Will return.

“OMG! You must make it here for mealtime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Parking isn't always the easiest to find around here, but hey it's Philly. Worth the walk.

If you are hungry and with a friend, splurge for the Noah's Arc. I was in town for work and ended up here for dinner 2 nights. So good.

“Quick and Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I had heard great things about Luke's Lobster so we decided to check it out. We ordered the Taste of Maine, so we got to sample a little bit of everything. All three rolls were exactly how I prefer them, very simple, very little seasoning and lots of quality, delicious seafood. Definitely a great place to stop by for a quick bite (there is not a lot of sitting room, so be prepared).

“Poor value”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

With wholesale prices of lobster at an all time low, I felt ripped off paying $17 for a lobster roll that has no tail meat. I didn't see any lobsters on the premises, so I don't think it is very fresh either.
