Tripadvisor app helped us find Luke's Lobster last week. We were on M Street and wanted a simple lunch, but something different from Subway.

The reviews are correct. This is a simple location, just a half-block off from M Street and doesn't look like much when you first enter. Seating is available upstairs and downstairs.

As recommended here, I ordered the Lobster roll. My husband ordered the Maine sampler: lobster roll, shrimp roll, and crab roll. Our tween girls ordered the lobster grilled cheese sandwiches. We added chips to our orders and drinks. Our girls LOVED the simply made, organic soft drinks (Sasparilla especially).

All of it was SO GOOD and the meat was huge and fresh. What a great meal!! Our tummies were full late into dinner time (even after all of our touring).

Don't miss out! They have several locations and I'm sure they are just as good.

My wife and I were walking the main street in Georgetown, looking for a place where we could eat a light dinner and not be swarmed by the Friday night life. Located a half-block off the main street on a side street, Luke's Lobster was the answer. Very small, with additional seating upstairs. Counter service with serve-yourself selection of non-alcoholic beverages from a glass-doored refrigerator. We both ordered the Lobster Bisque and shared one order of Lobster Roll served on a toasted bun. Plenty of lobster claws and chunks in both the bisque and the roll. We were very pleased with our light dinner choice. Just a hole-in-the-wall place, not somewhere you would go for a special occasion or a fancy dinner. Absolutely no attempt at decor. They serve lobster roll, crab roll, shrimp roll and variations on those themes. "Traveling the world one meal at a time..."

Forget a fancy seafood restaurant, Luke's is hands down the in DC. It's very casual, but makes for the perfect spring lunch.

Walking around in Georgetown and stopped to have some seafood! WOW! Very tasty and obviously fresh. It was quite simply prepared, but that showcased the seafood taste. We had the "Taste of Maine" which included a 1/2 roll of each of lobster, shrimp and crab and 2 crab claws. Scrumptious! The rolls seemed to have been toasted with a hint of butter, so that added a nice touch and flavor as well. Not a cheap "snack", but well worth the $23!!! Would MOST definitely recommend it! Quaint charm ambiance as well.
