Lobster, crab or shrimp rolls plus clam chowder & beer in a New England-style quick-service setting.- 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."

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!

Best Lobster Roll I've had in years! Loaded with great big pieces of fresh lobster with some butter & great seasoning. Cool Maine decor. Great beer from Maine. The "Taste of Maine" was amazing. Half ea of Lobster Roll, Shrimp Roll and Crab Roll - fresh and delicious and full of great flavors. I posted photos. This is a place I will travel out of my way to get to.

Simply the best lobster roll anywhere near here. Good service, call ahead, etc. but I don't recommend using the iOS app (it is no longer connected to their system last time I checked, and they won't get the order but it will still take your payment). I moved jobs recently and I actually find myself missing being so close to this place.

I will agree that its an expensive lobster roll for the amount that you are given- but I'm trying to take into account that lobster is expensive... The flavors are pretty good, the atmosphere is alittle drab and it would be nice if the food portions were a little bit bigger.

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.

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?

I've been eating proper New England lobster rolls for years, and have tried every place in DC to find one that comes close. This is absolutely as close as they come, except for *one* small difference. The Maine lobster they try and imitate is served just slightly chilled or room temp, and Luke's are refrigerated. Weekday happy hour with a beer or a delicious flavored soda, and I can forgive them.

We had the taste of Maine. Lobster, shrimp and crabs rolls. An Amazingly delicious snack. Very buttery and fresh tasting. Cool place but can full up quickly.
