Expensive but worth the treat! Lobster rolls don't get any better or cheaper than this! Expect to pay close to $30 to have a good meal here! With that you'll get a lobster roll, Cole slaw, soup , and an adult beverage! I really enjoyed the meal and the service was quick Seating is pretty limited inside and it is definitely a cozy spot so prepare to squeeze through When the weather is nice you'll enjoy sitting outside with their outdoor seating I definitely recommend this spot! It is amazing!

For DC, this is a decent lobster roll. I've been to Maine before and lobster rolls are both larger and less expensive. Of course, given that DC is over 600 miles away, you can't expect the same experience. The lobster roll is $16. We got the lobster roll soup combo and requested New England clam chowder. We also asked for Coke and Sprite. Our total came out to be about $50. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard that price; I had to double check the price displayed on the register. When I went to pick up the order, the server handed me two drinks but not Coke and Sprite; rather, it was Maine Root soda and lemon lime. Turns out they don't carry typical soda products but she didn't bother to tell us that when we ordered. In fact, her whole attitude when we were ordering was downright rude, apathetic, and detached. She was very aloof when we ordered, constantly looking sideways and pursuing her lips. Now, the roll. The bun - a buttered, toasted New England bun - was delicious (probably due to the butter). The roll was topped with mayo, lemon butter, and some of their "secret spices." Lobster was pretty good. Liked the balance between the lobster meat, buttered bun, mayo, lemon butter, and spices. It wasn't overpowered by the mayo. Clam chowder was decent too although nothing extraordinary. I prefer Red Hook lobster truck to Luke's Lobster (and I don't even go there too often). Luke's fulfills any lobster roll craving you might have but for the small quantity, average taste, and fairly cha-ching price tag, I can't justify coming here time and time again.

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.

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.

I love Luke's Lobster. The crab, shrimp and lobster rolls are all delicious. I love their sustainable practices and the fact that they know where all their ingredients come from. If you want to try all their rolls get the Noah's ark combo. You get a half of each roll and it's the perfect tasting option.

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.

It is not a fancy place, but still you could enjoy your meal. They serve the sandwich (roll) cold which I did not like, and for that such a small roll, it is pricy.

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.
