A Lobster Roll like no other - a good lobster roll is gold, and Luke’s lobsters is 24 karat, a grand slam. It was my first time having a Luke’s roll. We discovered the restaurant walking by and decided to pick up some for dinner....Once we got back to our hotel we went back and got 2 more - they are that good.More

Luke’s Lobster on S. Williams in NYC is a must if you are near the Exchange. The lobster is fresh and the jumbo roll was over flowing with chucks of meat. The clam chowder was also excellent. I will definitely be going back.More

The shack was small and wasn't busy because we very cold day. I had the trio and my daughter had the crab roll. They were a little smaller than expected, but they had good flavor. Our favorite was definitely the lobster roll. Everyone was friendly,...and we enjoyed our lunch.More

A $19 lobster roll for lunch is a real luxury, so I would not expect to still be hungry afterwards. Of course it could be that it was so delicious that I could have easily eaten a second. But, I’m NOT going to spend $40...for lunch. Too bad. Restaurant is small, snug but comfortable walk up counter and does a lot of carry out business.More

Ordered the lobster combo that came with a lobster roll, soup (lobster bisque) and drink. For my drink I chose the ginger beer and the spiciness was great against the richness of the lobster bisque which was almost too creamy. The lobster roll was predicable...but still good. People working there were nice and friendly. I'd go back if I need a lobster fix. As far as price is concerned, I wouldn't call it cheap eats because lunch will set you back around $30 but it's a nice treat.More

I’d heard so much about this place! Finally, I went to NYC just for one day and Luke’s was on my to-do list. So simple and quick! Real stuff for lobster and crab lovers! Pity I noticed ‘jumbo’ options only when I was full... I...also loved draft beer selection - just 4 beers, but of any type. I am sure something like this must be in Canada. Let me know if you know a place like this.More

Out of this world. We got the jumbo. So much meat and the light lemony dressing it so refreshing and light. Get a Maine Root ginger ale with it. Super spicy!

The portions of the sandwiches are extremely small for the price 17$ for a lobster sandwich super small and full of pepper. I could barely enjoy the taste of the lobster. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

The website says they can do mac & cheese without the lobster plus a few more options. I would check online and when you get there depending on the location you visit.
