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.

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!
