Luke's was three building away from our hotel this trip. It was so exciting to be able to walk over and grab lunch on a quiet Wednesday afternoon.

Living in Atlanta, I don't get many chances to get great, fresh lobster rolls and so I took advantage of a brief stay in Philadelphia to get just one roll!!! And, it was absolutely a "10!" The buns were toasted to perfection and the filling was just perfect! Get the lobster bisque, too! My husband said it was definitely better... More

Read many reviews and decided to get takeout on way back from Amish country. I will say this, my wife is the lobster freak and Luke's has made me join that club. Absolutely incredible lobster rolls, clam chowder fantastic and the chilled lobster tail is spot on. Only wish I had ordered more. Two thumbs up on Luke's

We live on one of the Great Lakes and have good fish, but coming to the East to get fresh seafood is real treat! The lobster rolls are the best I've ever had...lots of lump meat and nicely seasoned.

We went here for dinner once day, the lobster rolls were delicious! I like my lobster rolls simple and theirs were just lobster, butter, and some light seasoning. Lobster was excellent quality!

The lobster grilled cheese was great- and reasonably priced. Very small seating area and get pretty crowded at lunch. Friend ordered the crab roll but there was a lot of shell inside the roll- so use caution.

Simple menu & decor. Got a crab roll and lobster grilled cheese plus 2 drinks for $34 - maybe slightly overpriced for their size, but really tasty baskets of food!
