    No one else gets the sweet balance of lobster purity with buttery roll goodness that's found at Luke's. The simplicity of premium ingredients come together in perfect harmony in this lobster roll.

    Great location, has indoor and outdoor seating. One of the best, affordable Lobster Rolls in the city. Served cold, healthy portion of large chunks of sweet meat. Bread doesn't overpower the lobster.

    Same great lobster rolls as the East Village spot but we still recommend the Taste of Maine as the best bang for your buck. Best part of this location? You can now have it delivered!

    Yum and wow!! Bit expensive but so good. Lobster is basically just big chunks, butter and spice. Call ahead before going, they close for random reasons and don't post it anywhere but the front door!

    Lobster, shrimp and crab roll - all good. Today was a bit too much lemon butter on my lobster roll, but normally always great!

    It's unfortunate that the tables are for four so quick lunches and dinners are hard for one, but if you have the patience to wait, you can get a delicious lobster roll and a seat.

    My favorite lobster roll in the city. Whole chunks of lobster served warm on a buttered roll.

    The lobster roll was delicious. Definitely worth the upgrade to a combo for slaw, a pickle, and a drink

    When I miss New England this is where I get my fix! Lobster roll is DELICIOUS! Very hearty serving of lobster meat. Coleslaw is so-so

    Get the lobster mac and cheese. Won’t regret it. Lobster roll is tiny and a little pricey at $17, but it satisfied my craving.

    Lobster roll and crab roll are great. Shrimp roll is kinda lacking. Great spot for a quick (and healthy!) meal. Few seats inside.

    Great place to grab a spring/summer meal to bring to the park or sit on a bench near the Museum of Natural History. Some tasty beers too.

    First time trying the lobster roll & really enjoyed it but was surprised at the size which is hot dog + bun size.

    Spicy Mala lobster was amazing! The lobster was firm and juicy, but pass on the Mac and cheese.

    The cold Maine-style and hot Connecticut-style lobster rolls are some of the best in the city.

    Another popular chain with local famous lobster rolls. Shrimp roll is better, as for me.

    New York City’s freshest, most affordable lobster roll in now available on the Upper West Side! Our favorite remains the Noah’s Ark.

    I had the lobster roll and the clam chowder which were both fantastic. The problem is that the portions are quite small particularly the roll itself for the price being charged.

    Their rolls are amazing. The best in town. The lobster is pretty damn good, too. Get a Schooner special w/ ginger brew and salt + vinegar chips and you're set.

    Neck & neck with Red Hook for best lobster rolls in the city, and Luke's has far more locations.

    The lobster roll is definitely (and predictably) the best option here. Absolutely delicious.

    Enjoy delicious seafood and a killer lobster roll. A popular stop on the Spring Up to The West Side tour.

    Totally bland. The pickle was the best part. Either BYOOB (bring your own old bay) or go to Oaxaca Taco next door. Supes cheaper and totes DELISH!

    If you're getting a lobster roll anywhere besides Luke's, you're getting a second rate lobster roll.

    Quite possibly the best thing to happen to the UWS. Go big with the Taste of Maine or go home.

    A little pricey for the size of the sandwich. Definitely a #TreatYoSelf situation.
