I had this meal as delivery and during lunchtime. I've been craving a lobster roll and remembered having Luke's Lobster when in Boston. While I wasn't blown away with it then, I like the idea of the trio since I'm so indecisive haha. The trio deal came with three 1/2 rolls consisting of crab, shrimp, and lobster. As part of the combo meal, I ordered the lobster bisque which was an additional $2 than if I had chosen the chowder instead. I was worried the sandwiches would be soggy but the establishment was smart to pack the butter on the side and this way at least you get manage the amount you want on your sandwich. Upon opening my meal I thought they were small, but I'm greedy and always want more! Lobster rolls in particular, no matter where I've gotten them from just don't seem big enough. Well, it was more than enough as I got through the shrimp and crab and was stuffed before touching the lobster or the bisque. I ate the lobster anyway lol and tasted the bisque. Every single roll was delicious. Better than the first time and I would gladly order again. The sandwiches were thick with meat and the butter just ran down into the bread so with each bite there was flavor. The bisque was pretty tasty, could have used a touch more salt but that's just me- I'm sure I have high blood pressure. My meal came to $33 with tax and free delivery. Seems a little steep but that's seafood in the summer for ya. I'm sure there are better rolls out there for the price but I enjoyed my experience here and would order again.
Came down to Dumbo to hang out with the in laws. As we waited for them to arrive we decided to grab a quick bite at Luke's. It's set up to be fast food style so you order at the window and get notified once your food is ready! I decided to go for the lobster roll and slaw. The lobster roll was really good! The roll was soft and lightly toasted. They were generous with the amount of lobster and it was nice and and fresh! The poppy slaw was ok and the cashier did use the word "healthy" when i asked how it taste. It's an interesting vinaigrette used but I'm still glad i tried it instead of the cape cod chips. There is seating outside to the right of the location and it was a beautiful day so we ate outside. Pretty good spot if your in the area.
Gross. They have gone downhill. Lobster and crab rolls were so cold. Just defrosted i guess Crab roll was mostly the debris vs actual crab meat. See picture. Save your money. Go to shake shack across thebway I guess they realized that they can make more $$ as a tourist trap
