    This is one of the best lobster rolls in the city–four ounces of sweet, large chunks of lobster meat stuffed into a properly squishy, buttered and toasted hot dog bun. Read more

    Best Lobster Roll in the city. Noah's ark is the way to go. The lobster is fresh and spiced perfectly, but the roll tops everything: toasted to nirvana and buttered so right. Rock on Luke!!!!!!!!

    Summer was made for seafood, so go for all the delicious yet affordable lobster, shrimp, and crab rolls you can at any of their locations across the city. Order a Taste of Maine for a sampler of all 3

    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.

    This is the best lobster roll I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a lot of lobster rolls. Fresh, lightly toasted bun: check. Abundant chunks of luscious, pristine lobster: check. Easy on the mayo, also.

    Get the Noah's Ark. A great sampler to split between two people, two half rolls of shrimp, crab, and lobster. Fresh and delicious ingredients. Limited seating.

    Jennifer MaasJune 24, 2015
    This lobster roll joint has expanded through out the city (and beyond) and it's all thanks to their huge chunks of lobster meat not masked by anything but a little butter and mayo. And a toasted bun.
  • Corley S.
    Corley StoneJune 24, 2015
    One of the best lobster rolls in the city, mostly due to their obvious focus on the lobster itself. PLUS they hand pack your lobster roll with such care you'd think they were handling a baby

    Scrumptious lobster rolls, why aren't there lobster rolls on every block? They also have crab rolls and shrimp rolls that taste great. Try all three on your first trip, they have a combo. Worth the $!

    This is "The" Lobster Roll. A generous portion of delicious lobster blossoming from a lightly toasted roll. No sauces, no dips. Only lobster, lobster and again lobster.

    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 original location and the best. The lobster roll is what you're here to eat, but there's also crab, shrimp, clam chowder, etc. 8 seats and no restroom - plan accordingly. Also in UES, UWS, FiDi...

    Lobster roll nirvana. Luke's proudly sources their lobsters from small Maine fisheries and the quality is apparent. The rolls here are incredible with a huge amount of claw meat, just a tiny butter

    Get a noah's ark for a sample of everything. Lobster roll is TO DIE FOR but the shrimp is a good substitute if you're on a budget. Always go for full-size or you'll just leave wishing you ordered more

    Lobster, shrimp, crab rolls are all good. Get the taste of Maine to try them all at once. Clam chowder is the best so far.

    A meaty, simple lobster roll like they should be. Get the combo deal with soda and chips and walk over to Thompson square park for a summer date -- brownbag beer optional.

    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.
