“Simply Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Best lunch I've had since who know's when. The lobster rolls are perfect in terms of the lobster and quality of the bread. Almost an emotional experience. The clam chowder came a close second. A little light on on the actual clam but the tast was perfect. Finished all off with crab claws.Would be nice if there was more seating (this one only holds about 10 at a time and it was too cold to sit outside.)

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was craving a lobster roll (having lived in Massachusetts) and I found Luke's Lobster. I was able to call in my order and pick it up quickly. We got the Noah's Ark, which is two lunch boxes filled with half of the shrimp, crab and lobster rolls. Just delicious! The bread was soft and sweet and the meats were definitely the stars of the sandwich. Very little condiments, which is how I remember lobster rolls. It's a little difficult to find, if you're not from the area. The street they are on is actually a pedestrian only street, so park in the garage and you're right there. Also, it is not an eat-in location so be prepared to get your food to go. The employees were very nice and the food delicious. Luke's Lobster is definitely on my to go back to list when I visit DC/MD again.

“Tasty dinner on the run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Saturday evening in Bethesda. Had the combo with a half each of the shrimp, crab, and lobster. Lobster was the favorite here. Rolls were perfect.

SODA choices were sublime...taste them all!

“A Taste of Maine in Maryland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

If you love "lobsta", crab and shrimp then this place is for you! Served on true New England style buns, these seafood delicacies are fresh & delicious. Their creamy clam chowder is great as are the meaty crab claws. Their handcrafted "Maine Root" drinks come in 6 flavors: root beer, mexicane cola, blueberry, ginger brew, diet cola & lemonade. My wife & I especially liked the blueberry. Their indoor seating is limited & there are tables & benches in a covered outdoor area. Jason & Chad said that they'll have heating lamps for when it gets colder. Carryouts are available. They've only been open 4 months, but we wish them every success. The next time we're in Bethesda, we'll stop by for another delicious taste of Maine.

“Good Clam Chowder”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

It's a good alternative to other fast food chains.
I had a good clam chowder. It had lots of seafood. It was very tasty and it's a good value for money.
