Luke’s was delicious! I got the clam chowder and lobster roll and it was very good. I’m so glad I got to try the famous “lobster roll” didn’t get sick at all and I am very sensitive. Wait staff was awesome and knowledgeable. Would go back again anytime!

My first time visiting Maine and I am SO GLAD that I could try a famous lobster roll! The gluten free roll was soft and tasty and the lobster was so fresh and delicious. The servers were knowledgeable about celiac/gluten free and my meal came out labeled as an allergy. There was a long wait to get a table, but it was worth it! I have celiac and did not get sick.

The gluten free lobster roll is crazy good! We ordered fries on the side and they looked breaded so we asked and they were indeed not gluten free. We didn’t mention my boyfriend was celiac when we ordered so partially our fault but she took away the fries and gave us another side that was gluten free. She also mentioned they were using a different vendor because of shortages so I think normally the fries are gf. We felt great after eating this so no cross contamination even with the fry mix up. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a lobster roll and just make sure to mention it’s an allergy.

The GF lobster roll was EXCELLENT. Our waiter was knowledgeable about celiac disease. There tends to be a wait. Pro Tip: ask to sit at the bar and all the tables around the bar are first come first serve. What was supposed to be a 40 min wait ended up being zero wait time.

I had the Lobster roll served on a GF bun, with chips and pickle. It was fantastic! I am super sensitive to cross contamination… eating out is risky… but I had a great experience. The server was knowledgeable,and took great care of me.

This is one of the best lobster restaurants in Portland in particular if you’re gluten sensitive. The best thing is that even though the menu doesn’t state Gluten Free (GF) they have a variety of delicious GF choices including fried haddock using rice flour, lobster bisque, clam chowder, lobster rolls with gluten free buns.

Ordered a gf lobster roll and got glutened.

Staff was unsure about mitigating cross contamination. They toast the bread on same grill as non gf items.

Do not recommend for celiacs but keto followers maybe fine

They have gluten-free rolls and soups, but the best part was that they took their time to clean the station during a busy lunch rush. Super yum!

I ordered the gluten free lobster roll. Best $27 I ever spent. Honestly, you need to eat this. Let them know that you're gluten free request is for an "allergy" and they'll change their gloves and prepare your order in a completely different area of the kitchen. In LOVE with the sandwhich. QUALITY!! The toasted roll they use is FANTASTIC!!! Not something you can usually say of a gfree bread. I did not get sick at all. Great experience!!! Will eat here again!!! Highest recommend!!!

Owner’s daughter has celiac so the staff is super knowledgeable. We had to wait a bit while they cleaned the kitchen between our gluten and non-gluten sandwiches. (Yay!)

The GF bread is soft but a little tasteless. (When isn’t it?) The clam chowder is AMAZING. They use potato starch instead of flour so all the soups are GF. When was the last time you had a creamed soup?!?

We’re from out of town, but I’d be here often if I could. Myself and daughter are both celiac and neither of us got sick.
