I'd been walking past this place for a year now. Finally, I figured I'd go in. Sure, it's expensive and portions are not large.. but it's lobber and crab, what would you expect? That said, it's actually a lot more food than I figured it would be!.. so splurge once in a while, it's quite good.

Hey there! Thanks so much for your positive review! We're stoked that you decided to come in after all this time! Our lobster roll is $17, crab roll is $13, and our shrimp roll is just $9. The shrimp roll is one of my favorites so I highly recommend if you like shrimp - it's of the North Atlantic variety from Gaspe, Quebec, so the shrimp is the smaller and sweeter kind. We look forward to seeing you again soon on your next splurge! Cheers - Kevin - General Manager - Luke's Lobster - East Village

After a long walk in New York we decided to enjoy a Lobster Roll. The place was certainly very rundown and the food was not anything special. For about 20 dollars for a small sandwich, they should deliver a delicious food. Every thing was average at most.

Hey Nader, I was disappointed to read your review here; I do appreciate you coming in to dine with us and to give us a try. To speak about our lobster roll, we make ours Maine style, with a buttered toasted bun, chilled lobster on top of a little swipe of mayo, warm lemon butter and herbal seasoning on top. I'd curious to hear what you would've preferred to have or what you did or didn't like about our roll. We put 1/4 lb. of seafood on all of our seafood rolls, and the lobster roll is $17. We always strive to make the best lobster rolls we can, and are always looking to improve the state of our business, so if there's anything more specific you wanted to point out, it would be helpful. Thanks again for visiting us and we do hope that you choose to dine with us again. Best regards, Kevin - General Manager - Luke's Lobster - East Village

Had a delicious lunch. The 4 of us had lobster rolls, lobster Mac and cheese and the side salad. Everything was so good. Way beyond what I expected. The staff was friendly and provided extra pickles gladly. Highly recommend!

Hey Helen! Thanks so much for your positive review! I'm not sure if you came to our East Village location - as we do not sell the side salads here - but thanks either way! We do have everything else that you mentioned. We always do our best to provide you with as many pickles as you well desire and will so compliment your food! Thanks again and we hope you come visit us again soon! Cheers, Kevin - General Manager - Luke's Lobster - East Village

Came here with my daughter this weekend for lunch before seeing STOMP a block away. Super friendly service and fresh lobster. Can't complain about that. I also love the special Green Bee sparkling waters. Real blueberry flavor. I like the healthy drink alternatives.

Hey there, thanks so much for your positive review! Is this Steve per chance? I mentioned the review and the team mentioned that they remembered you coming in and chatting with ya! Glad to see our guests taking advantage of our proximity to STOMP for their pre-entertainment dinner, so cheers to that! In case you didn't already know, not only do we do our best to get you the best lobster possible, but it is also traceable and sustainable - just as we would prefer - we know our lobstermen and we know where all of our seafood comes from, back to the very dock that it was caught! Stoked that you like the Green Bee as well! The blueberry and the ginger sparkling waters are my favorite! Cheers and see you next time! - Best, Kevin - General Manager - Luke's Lobster - East Village

Before visiting New York, a friend suggested me to try this joint. It's lucky we didn't have to travel far coz they have a store nearby where we stayed. All meat, fresh and not ruined by mayonnaise or others. Lobster Roll is the best. Great service too.

Hey there! Thanks for coming in to visit us! You are correct! We serve our lobster rolls Maine-style, with just a little swipe of mayo on a buttered toasted bun, and warm lemon butter and herbal seasoning on top, just a bit, so you can taste the seafood - the most important part! If you like lobster, we also have the lobster mac and cheese and the lobster grilled cheese seasonal items, which I highly recommend if you'd like to try something different from us next time! Hope to see you soon! - Best, Kevin - General Manager
