Delicious lobster rolls! Here you need to order at the counter, then find a seat in the restaurant or patio and a waiter will bring the food to you. The service was quick, but the tables outside had not been wiped between diners.

Luke's is part of a lobster co-operative and serves up REALLY fresh, wonderful seafood of all kinds. Also had a phenomenal "home made" ice cream sandwich--excellent!!!

The lobster rolls are fresh, and the Maine beers delicious. But the portions are small. The rolls are accompanied by a pickle and slaw or potato chips. The service is very friendly and one can eat outside in a wonderful open arcade.

If you love New England lobster rolls and your not on the cape...check out a Luke's lobster shack. It's the closest thing to being there when you not. Lots of choices beyond the lobster roll to choose from if if your not a fan. I had the combo which was perfect!! We will be back, Enjoy!

We were so looking forward to enjoying another annual visit to Luke's Lobster in Bethesda (since we live 800 miles away). This afternoon's lobster rolls were a bit of a letdown. While there was plenty of lobster meat on our toasted rolls, it seemed much mushier - as if it had been soaked in water for quite a while. We... More

My daughter treated us and brought home Luke's lobsters rolls. It was amazing! Hold the mayo, just butter and the buttered bun. Glad to be a part of the happy crowd! Won't disapoint!

I had the lobster roll with slaw and chowder. All were excellent. Slaw is made with vinaigrette which I prefer. The lobster was very tender so was the bun. The soup was not too meaty but very good. Very casual and small place. But the food is excellent

Luke´s lobster is a diner that serves lobster, crab and shrimp rolls. On the side you get Crab Claws. Chips and soda/beer to go with the rolls. One of my clear favorites for a quick lunch in Bethesda.

While strolling around Bethesda checking out the shops while on vacation we just happened to walk by. My friend walked in just to grab a menu and walked right back out and said 'holy moly you have to walk in here' so we did....and we instantly hit with the amazing smell of lobster bisque. The menu is simple, lobster rolls,... More

I go here sometimes when visiting the area--it's really the best lobster roll around the dc metro area, but having lived briefly in Boston it's just so-so. And terribly overpriced ! I don't know how the customers afford it- Great bisque and friendly service .
