I had Luke’s Trio which is a lobster roll, a crab roll and a shrimp roll. This is a great way to sample each of the rolls. The location is super small so seating is a challenge. The service was polite and fast.

I lived in CT so I’m partial to hot lobster rolls (just lobster and butter on a buttered New England hotdog roll) but all things considered, this was a pretty good lobster roll. Not overly mayonnaisey, with a lemony vinaigrette of sorts. More claw meat...More

Excellent place do eat, you will feel welcome and comfortable there. The food is delicious (not cheaper). Place clean. They only have a terrible Mexican drink, so bring your drink. Very recommended.

The lobster rolls are overflowing with large pieces of lobster. There is little spice, but almost no mayonnaise, so the entire taste sensation is of fresh lobster - delicious! You order at the counter and food is brought to you; drinks and chips are self-serve.

Small menu mostly lobster rolls but at $21 for a salad and small lobster tail, you can’t beat the price. Basically a fast food style restaurant with Crab, shrimp lobster and good clam chowder.

Tried the crab, shrimp, and lobster rolls and all three were absolutely delicious. The people were also really friendly. This is a must!
