Nice relaxing atmosphere. Wood floors wooden tables and benches. Nice location, nice customers. The young man (counter) is pleasant. The lobster rolls are perfectly toasted. You pick a bag of kettle chips and Brazilian or Mexican type bottle soda. I had the ginger brew (a great choice) The lobster sandwich approx (claw meat only) comes in a red basket with a 1/4 slice pickle. A bit pricey for a 6 inch club 20.00 but it is loaded with meat.

All Claw meat all the way

Luke's has put together a delectable (and I think reasonably priced) lobster roll composed of only claw meat which makes for a delicious lobster roll. The taste is simple, nothing more but nothing less than you would want out of your lobster roll. A little butter on the roll and basically nothing else, best lobster roll I can remember in a long time. However, if you're hungry, you might have to order 2. Will definitely be heading back soon for another.

They taste good, and they are not drowned in mayonnaise, so they are pretty good for you too.
