We came here off of a recommendation from our friend. We were SO IMPRESSED! We have never had a lobster roll this delicious before. The chunks of lobster were huge and falling off of the bun! It was so delicious, buttery, and tasty. The bread was slightly toasted, perfect! People complained about the price-Yes, its a little pricey, but it's... More

Although pearl oyster bar will always be my favorite lobster roll, Luke's is completely different and a close second. When I don't feel like a massive blowout I enjoy these small simple rolls. Recommend for anyone who loves lobster!!!

Enjoyed my first lobster roll ever here. Thought they gave me a lot of lobster meat for the $$. The bun was very fresh as well. Thumbs up!

We got our lunch and took it for a picnic in the park. The lobster rolls were sooo delicious. I've been craving another one since we got back, but there's nothing near me to satisfy my craving!

Luke's certainly serves an ample amount of lobster but there should be more complex additions to the roll. So if you are hoping for just lobster on a bun this is it. I think subtle additions can be made. The clam chowder is fine....not any where near the best I have had. The Maine root beer was great. Great flavor... More

This was another foodie recommendation that is an utter farce. Luke is "famous" for its lobster rolls and when I walked in I was literally excited. The buttery smell got me famished and it is a colorful really cute lil shop. The lobster roll at $15 seemed like a good deal until I saw how freaking tiny they were. We... More

So here it is. They have lobster, not the frozen kind, but actual lobster. it's pretty tasty, however it is pricey. The downside of being in nyc. Unless you feel like driving up to Maine and ripping apart lobsters with your bare hands. But the lobster there is seasoned well and comes on bread for your lobster roll. I'd go... More

This place was a massive disappointment. The pictures give the impression of a sub roll packed with chunks of delicious lobster. I was so excited to try it. Firstly it was a pain in the butt to get to. I got there and the prices nearly bowled me over. $16 for a lobster roll!!!! When they made the thing I... More

Just topped off a successful East Village food crawl with the ridiculously sumptuous Lukes Lobster roll. This place surpassed our already high expectations and delivered the goods. Five food critics are now five addicts. Get the lobster roll with claws and hold the mayo- the chilled lobster and toasted roll is all you need!

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
