    The lobster roll here is a study of balance and restraint: four ounces of sweet Maine lobster meat, a buttered bun with a brush of mayonnaise and a dash of seasoning ($14). Read more

    Best bet for lobster roll in the East Village (maybe even all of towntown?). The $8 half sandwich will make you cry it's so small so opt for the $14 one. For bonus points go splitty-splitty w/ someo

    Best lobster rolls in the city, period. Want the most bang for your buck? Go for the Taste of Maine, 3 halfrolls - lobster, crab, and shrimp. Top it with a little Sriracha and you're in seafood bliss.

    A former lobsterman himself, Luke can tell you the area in Maine their catch came from, the trappers who caught them, and the processor that prepared the crustaceans for shipment (Luke's dad)! Read more

    don't let the name fool you, the shrimp roll is where it's at - light, buttery, and not too rich... served on a bun toasted to perfection.

    In America small does not mean small, unless you're dealing in Lobster rolls. I learned the hard way. Go all out, spoil yourself, go large. Don't be a fool like me.

    The bargain shrimp roll—a buttered, split-top bun packed with juicy shrimp lightly tossed with herbed salt and a hint of mayo—is worth a detour from the more famous lobster roll (and half the price). Read more

    The Schooner Combo is definitely your best bet at Luke’s, a lobster roll, Maine Root soda, Miss Vickie’s chips and pickle for $17. Soda’s are fab, come in original, lemon lime or mandarin orange.

    Sam Brown · July 1, 2011
  • Juicy Couture

    Straight from Maine, these are the best lobster rolls you’ll find in the state of New York, and still affordable.

    Get the lobster roll and a crab roll. Eat the crab roll first, because you want to savor the lobster. Think about Maine.

    The "Taste of Maine" is well worth the price or get the "Noah's Ark" if you're with a date or friend

    If that little lobster roll doesn't fill you up, add a clam chowda -- it's delish.

    Brian Wong · May 31, 2010
  • Matty-Ho

    Try it! If you like lobster rolls, you can't go wrong with the Taste of Maine or Noah's Ark, both are a great sampler of rolls for a reasonable price.

    You can't go wrong ordering anything at Luke's Lobster. I've tried everything, and it's all good. The shrimp is more filling than the lobster or crab.
