Good lobster. Bread is too chilly sometime, my only complaint. Selection of sides, sodas, sufficient.

I was in town for business and after three straight nights of big and expensive business dinners, I was alone and wanted a simple seafood meal. Since I was not from the area, I didn't realize this restaurant is located in an alley/street that is closed off from traffic. I circled the block several times because my rental car GPS... More

On a chilly day in December popping into Luke's for a lobster roll is a great idea. The food is good and you can't eat a good lobster roll without thinking of past experiences in Maine and looking forward to another trip in August. In the winter they add a lobster and gruyere grilled cheese and a crab and gruyere... More

As a lover of seafood I was very pleased to visit Lukes and experience the awesome that is a Lobster roll. Served up with slaw and a pickle they are delicious and perfect with a root beer. The service is quick making it perfect for lunch time on the run. I would highly recommend a visit.

Delicious lobster rolls! Here you need to order at the counter, then find a seat in the restaurant or patio and a waiter will bring the food to you. The service was quick, but the tables outside had not been wiped between diners.

Luke's is part of a lobster co-operative and serves up REALLY fresh, wonderful seafood of all kinds. Also had a phenomenal "home made" ice cream sandwich--excellent!!!

The lobster rolls are fresh, and the Maine beers delicious. But the portions are small. The rolls are accompanied by a pickle and slaw or potato chips. The service is very friendly and one can eat outside in a wonderful open arcade.

If you love New England lobster rolls and your not on the cape...check out a Luke's lobster shack. It's the closest thing to being there when you not. Lots of choices beyond the lobster roll to choose from if if your not a fan. I had the combo which was perfect!! We will be back, Enjoy!

We were so looking forward to enjoying another annual visit to Luke's Lobster in Bethesda (since we live 800 miles away). This afternoon's lobster rolls were a bit of a letdown. While there was plenty of lobster meat on our toasted rolls, it seemed much mushier - as if it had been soaked in water for quite a while. We... More

My daughter treated us and brought home Luke's lobsters rolls. It was amazing! Hold the mayo, just butter and the buttered bun. Glad to be a part of the happy crowd! Won't disapoint!
