The lobster roll was delicious. My husband and I were not that hungry so asked them to split it which they were very happy to do

This is one of those places that looks like a "hole in the wall" as it is downstairs, below ground level, in center city. However the food is absolutely amazing. Love this place. The lobster is always fresh and super tasty. Fresh. Never frozen.

$17 Lobster Roll, small and expensive but delicious. Fast service. Lobster served on hot dog rolls. I would like to try the crab and shrimp rolls next. Don't purchase the Maine Blueberry Lemonade. Avoid it all cost!

Food is delicious! Does not serve alcohol and place is difficult to get to for those with small children or elderly family members. We really enjoyed the food although portions are tiny for the price.

I know this restaurant chain from New York (now live in Dallas) and whenever my travel takes me close to a Luke's Lobster I stop by as often as I can. They perfected the art of lobster rolls. If you are a foodie, this is...More
