okay they are good lobster rolls, meaning filled with big chunks of lobster claw meat, excellent presentation, and simple. But the lobster is clearly thawed and not as flavorful as fresh cooked lobster... its kind of pricy but gotta realize we are in NYC and not roadside Maine. Delivery is slower but reliable and it arrives well packaged and cared for.

Those who find something to criticize about portion size must be used to eating at hog troughs. Fabulous, succulent, melt in your mouth claw meat overladen buttered and toasted hot dog roll with no filler - a true Maine lobster roll - $14?? Go try find another anywhere in the city within $10 in price that compares. Will be a regular - a Maine "Lobsta Shack" on the UES? Awesome - THANK YOU!

Just got back from Maine where we went to some of the famous lobster shacks and Luke's lobster rolls rank right up there in terms of taste, price, and authenticity. In fact, all my boyfriend could keep saying after each place we tried in Maine was "Luke's is better."

After passing by a few times seeing people lined up outside the restaurant, I finally stepped in and gave it a try myself. I ordered a lobster roll meal. The bread they use is as bad as the hot dog on the street. Can't believe the meal includes a soda and a bag of potato chips like a chain sandwich restaurant. The lobster roll itself has nothing special but a small bread with a few pieces of defrosted lobster. I can do better than that at home by myself.

Luke's is an amazing breath of fresh air in a neighborhood where casual and delicious dining is hard to come by. The lobster roll and New England clam chowder are straight out of Boston or the Cape! Highly recommended!

When I heard that Luke's Lobster was opening on the UES I was ecstatic. I made the trek from the UWS down to the East Village twice in one year for their lobster rolls (because they really are the best lobster rolls in the entire city), but since Luke's opened on the UES a month or two ago we have already been there twice. And I plan to go at least 2 more times before the summer is over. The roll is buttered and toasted before being stuffed with huge chunks of sweet lobster meat that is lightly dusted with celery salt (I think) and nothing else. It is amazing. You have to try it.
