    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 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.

    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!!!!!!!!

    Ian Orekondy · June 25, 2015
  • Jennifer M.

    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.

    Jennifer Maas · June 24, 2015
  • Jen B.

    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

    Jen Balisi · August 18, 2011
  • Andrew L.

    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...

    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.

    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

    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 $!

    Rachael Brungard · August 19, 2013
  • Vicky S.

    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.

    Vicky Sun · April 2, 2015
  • Corley S.

    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

    Corley Stone · June 24, 2015
  • Maximiliano

    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.

    Maximiliano · August 19, 2013
  • Tyler L.

    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

    Tyler Lund · June 14, 2015
  • Dens

    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

    Great lobster rolls but my favorite is actually their shrimp roll! It's soooooo good. You have to try it! Lukes lobster also supports so many causes and nonprofit orgs and maine lobster industry

    Appetite for Good · May 7, 2011
  • Sam B.

    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.

    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.

    Lobster roll perfection. No liquor at this outpost but Village Farm on 10th and 2nd Ave sells cans of Whale's Tale from Cisco Brewery in Nantucket. Forget happy meals, this is a happier meal.

    Serena · January 2, 2012
  • Sarene L.

    Can't wait to go back here for the best lobster rolls I've ever had. But the space is SMALL -- I'd check out the 81st street location if you want to sit down and have a leisurely meal.

    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

    they turn out some pretty amazing stuff here.. if you like some mayo in your lobster roll, make sure to ask for it.. they won't put a lot, but thats okay cuz there's no need for much at all

    Munira Ahmed · July 7, 2010
  • Mike M.

    Have to admit - it lives up to the hype. Incredibly fresh lobster rolls, reasonably priced, authentic decor / scene / staff. Wish I could afford this for lunch every day!

    Mike McBryan · June 26, 2015
  • naveen

    get the 'taste of maine' and have a taste of everything: shrimp roll, lobster roll, crab roll & empress claws. eat it slowly and let yourself float; otherwise you gonna drown in food

    naveen · August 31, 2010

    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.

    Our Readers' Choice WINNER for Best Lobster Roll. Owned by former lobsterman Luke Holden, the $14 lobster roll is hard to miss with four heaping ounces of fresh Maine lobster meat. Read more

    of course get the lobster roll (prob why you came) but please do not leave without getting the crab roll too! It's so good, next time you'll come here for the crab roll only!

    This would have been the perfect if the Patriots hadn't choked. Nevertheless, they will deliver for free if you order $200 or more. They are also now serving a lobster grilled cheese.

    Kimberly-Lyn Pressman · January 28, 2013
  • Wejdan

    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.

    Wejdan · November 4, 2014
  • Djaniella D.

    Best lobster, crab, and shrimp roll I've ever tasted! Bring a friend and get the Noah's Ark -- a perfect size taste of all three!

    The ONLY place for lobster rolls in all of NYC/anywhere. Even the fanciest restaurants' lobster rolls pale in comparison to this joint. Love love love.

    try the lobster roll, crab roll, and shrimp roll in that order. or get the taste of Maine for half rolls of each if you wanna try all three at one time.

    Darryl M. · November 7, 2010
  • Matthew P.

    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.

    Matthew Pantoja · April 18, 2010
  • Holger L.

    Oh man, the lobster sandwich is to die for! Big chunks of lobster with some spices in a hot dog bun. How can you go wrong with that...straight out of Maine! Read more

    Holger Luedorf · June 29, 2010
  • DishEnvy

    The lobster roll is the city's best according to our users, but don't shy away from the Crab Roll which actually gives the lobster a run for it's money.

    DishEnvy · October 2, 2012
  • Matt D.

    At Luke's they serve a very hearty lobster roll on a nice buttery bread. The place may be small but the chunks of slobby lobstah certainly aren't!

    Matt Dermody · June 24, 2015

    Indulge yourself (or with a partner) in the Noah’s Ark (2 small lobster, crab, & shrimp rolls, 2 pairs of empress class, & 2 drinks. All for $38. Read more

    Went here yesterday and noticed that they currently have a limited Captain's Special, which adds a small soup to any combo ;) Great shrimp rolls.

    The Lobster Roll is the most popular in the city (#2 is Pearl Oyster Bar, #3 Ed's Lobster Bar, #4 Mary's Fish Camp and #5 The Mermaid Inn).

    Try the Lobster Roll (Sandwich) - Ordered Noah's ark (half lobster roll,half crab roll, and shrimp roll plus soda and chips for two) Nom Nom (。-_-。)

    Julina · May 11, 2011
  • Cindy T.

    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.

    There isn't a better lobster roll in NYC. Meat is chunky and fresh and the rolls are buttered and toasted to perfection

    ZZubin · April 11, 2015
  • Food Republic

    Why go all in and order the Noah's Ark? Throw some Sriracha on those bad boys for an extra kick. Don't forget to peep the Panda book in the corner.

  • Alexis T.

    The name tags along the walls are not name tags. They're frequent diner cards so get one! After you buy 10 you'll get a free lobster roll.

    Per my last tip, I blame @dens for this addiction. Luke's Lobster rolls changed my perspective on lobster rolls. I didn't know a lobster roll love like this could exist until Luke's came along.

    Taste of Maine: 1/2 lobster, 1/2 crab and 1/2 shrimp roll with 2 crab claws and slaw
