I have been there twice now on two different visits to D.C. I ran across it looking for a place to eat after visiting the sites. Very good relatively cheap lobster rolls and unique sodas.

The food and the lobster is awesome and fresh. If you're into formal, this is not your place. It's a casual place ideal for lobster-hungry foodies.

Hello Arturo! Thank you for coming to visit us and for taking the time to write a review! I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal and hope that you are able to make it back in again! Our lobster is the freshest we can get our hands on. We source it from North Atlantic Harbors and work directly with lobster men!

By the time our party of 6 got inside the shop, it was full. Authentic fishy smell. Roll is size of hotdog bun for $17! Sides are extra. No bargain. Disappointing.

Hello! Thank you for coming to visit us while you were in DC! I'm glad that you were able to experience our rolls. Although lobster can be pricey, we work hard with Cape Seafood to bring the best quality lobster available to DC!

Luke’s Lobster makes a good lobster roll. We came in the mid-afternoon when there was no line and split a single roll as a snack (they even cut it in half for us). I’m not quite sure what is in the spice mix, but whatever we shook over the lobster roll was delicious, too.

Be warned: it is expensive and not very filling. However, you know if you want a lobster roll or not, so let that be your guide

Hi Kevin! Thank you for coming to visit us while you were in DC and for taking the time to write a review! Our secret seasoning is our own special blend created just to compliment the lobster roll!
