Seafood counter serving Maine-style lobster rolls with toasted buns, plus clam chowder & microbrews.- Google
"The shrimp rolls are the best option..followed by the lobster roll."
"Also the tasty clam chowder tends to sell out during lunch, so arrive early."

My parents and I had the Noah's Ark and it was delicious. Hands down, it was the freshest and tastiest seafood that I had ever had on the east coast. However, it was a bit pricey, and split among 3 people, left a lot to be desired. The total price was $51.70 and the portions were egregiously small but understandable because they ship their seafood in from various places in Maine. Overall, if you have around $20 to spend on a two-handful sized roll in D.C., then go ahead and relish it.

I've reviewed less than 3 restaurants in my life. Best crab roll ever! So glad we walked out of Carmine's to come here.

cozy diner with a fair sized menu for such a place. great beer selection and price that makes up for the menu pricing. primarily cold dishes except for the grilled cheese.

Thanks for checking us out! We actually serve our rolls Maine-style, which means our seafood is served chilled in a buttered and toasted split-top bun with just a little bit of mayo, lemon butter and secret seasoning to taste. Hope you come back again!

Good food, cheap beer, and amazing service sure hits the spot during this cold snap. Disclaimer - I have never been to Maine, so I'm not sure what a 'real' crab roll is supposed to taste like. This one was great, with cold crab salad on a hot buttery roll. Add a $3.50 happy hour beer and it was a fantastic experience. Also the tasty clam chowder tends to sell out during lunch, so arrive early.

Thanks for the nice words! Did you know we serve a quarter pound of pure crab meat in every roll?

Quaint fishing themed dining area. Luke's has a small menu but delicious dishes. Our party of 4 ordered the Noah's ark and clam chowders. Food was good, just as expected. Very fair price. I've not had lobster, crab and shrimp rolls for $38 for 4 ppl.

Nice fresh ingredients. A little pricey but good quantity. Should make more combo options for all items instead of a few or substitute soup options. Would definitely come again.

Thanks for the suggestion! We'll definitely keep it in mind as we update our menus.

Very good, the lobster tasted super fresh. I thought the price was reasonable considering it was lobster. I couldn't come here every day for lunch, but maybe once or every other month I would splurge a little.

Food was great. Had sampler. Not a lot of seating but it's downtown. Had to be careful with claws and rolls became found some shell but what can you expect for so much seafood.
