We went for lunch after seeing some museums and got the Noahs Ark, which was the perfect amount of food for the two of us. It came with 1 lobster roll, 1 crab roll, 1 shrimp roll, coleslaw, drinks and 4 crab claws. I had never had a lobster roll before and now I can't stop thinking about them!!! It makes me wish I lived on the east coast!

Don't let the line scare you away --- the lobster rolls at Luke's Lobster are worth the wait and the price. The sandwich is large lobster chunks, without filling or add ins. The rolls are fresh and filled with the lobster salad. Some of the their competitors have gotten skimpy on the portions -- but not Luke's. And everything is made to order. We maybe waited 10 minutes in line, and then 10 minutes for the food (the place is small so grab a counter seat as soon as one opens up!) - so within 20 minutes of walking in, we were eating our lobster rolls! Can't wait to come back.

Hello! Thanks for coming to visit us at Luke's Lobster and for taking the time to write us a review! I'm glad that you enjoyed your rolls! Each of our sandwiches comes with a quarter pound of lobster, crab, or shrimp from Cape, Seafood! We add minimal toppings so that the quality of our seafood can really shine through with each bite.

Thanks again,

You would not see this place unless you were looking for it. Glad we did. Lunch was fast and fresh with homemade slaw and a Maine Root blueberry soda. The lobster rolls are amazing and you can also choose crab or shrimp. From the looks of them at neighboring tables, they are just as good.

Very casual place, friendly staff and fast service. A mound of big lobster pieces coming out of a soft warm bun. Yum! Very good quality! The only reason for the 4 stars is because the beer was not cold enough.

Visited based on reviews. Great experience and the food was delicious. It's rather expensive, but it's fresh seafood so that's to be expected. Very friendly and helpful service. My only concern was that my beer wasn't very cold. I would definitely go back.
