Found this place through the FMGF app and was very please. It looks kind of sketch from the outside, but once you walk down the step into this converted basement, you will find excellent lobster rolls. This version of the lobster roll come with liquid butter painted on the outside of the roll with a small amount of mayonnaise underneath of good portion of lobster. They have gluten free buns and they clam chowder and lobster corn soup are also gluten free. They are very upfront and accommodating for all allergies and it was a pleasure returning for another lobster roll and lobster soup. Excellent. The prices are a little high for lunch $26 for the lobster combo, but worth it.

I wasn't able to eat there because I'm allergic to Soy. But I have to give them high marks because they took the time to read off all the ingredients for me, and were willing to toast something I brought in.

I don’t know why Boston celiacs keep ranking these places highly when they won’t keep basic guidelines for cross contamination.

People: if they won’t guarantee no cross contamination or won’t use a separate space and utensils, it is NOT celiac friendly. Stop ranking these places and risking other people’s health.

I am very sensitive celiac. Went to Luke's and have not had any reaction 24 hours later. Upon ordering they asked about preference or allergy. When I said allergy, they told me it would be a couple extra minutes as they get a new cutting board, knife and utensils. The lobster roll, clam chowder and natural sodas are awesome!

Soooooo good! Technically they say “gluten friendly” which usually would make me nervous, but when I said I had celiac they made sure to scrub the grill and change all gloves/utensils to avoid contamination and I didn’t get sick. Extremely friendly staff and delicious lobster rolls. Can’t wait to come back here.

Said they have gluten free rolls, but they only have one griddle that they just “wipe down”. Didn’t feel safe enough, so didn’t end up eating here

I eat here about once a month and I’ve been sick. When your a gf roll, the cashier will ask if gf is a preference or allergy. When you say “allergy” they get a new cutting board, knife, and change gloves. Also the gf rolls are so good that once I thought I was served a gluten roll by mistake. I wasn’t.

My first lobster roll! Really delicious. GF bread was so buttery and good. Lobster was very fresh. Wish it was bigger though- pricey for a small sandwich. Staff ask if you have an allergy or if it’s a preference, then change gloves and wipe down bread toaster before preparing your roll.

Underwhelming experience. Went on a Saturday and asked about GF rolls, was told "oh, we'll have those on Monday." Opted for the option to put the seafood meat on a bed of lettuce but then you don't get any of the butter and seasoning that add to the flavor.

Had the lobster roll and poppyseed slaw...both were delicious. They tell you the roll is prepared on a separate table and grill, but of course there’s always the risk of cross contamination. Understandable for any establishment. Nice treat to be able to have a grilled lobster roll rather than lobster over greens.

The food here was delicious! The staff were really nice, too. Note, if you’re really sensitive, the GF buns are cooked on the same grill as the glutinous ones, but if you ask they will keep yours off the grill. Completely recommended!

Walked in the snow today to get a GF lobster roll and they were out of GF buns :-(. So I got the clam chowder, and while it was ok and had a decent amount of clam pieces, it wasn't worth $10. The potatoes were a little undercooked and the soup base wasn't very creamy. Wouldn't get the soup again for that price, but wish I could have tried a lobster roll!!

And they put regular oyster crackers in my bag after we had just confirmed that the soup was truly gluten free.

Sadly when we came here in July the staff was not very nice. I asked for gluten free bread with the cashier, but 10 minutes later was told by a man in the kitchen there wasn't any that day. We got cold lobster, crab and shrimp and some soup. Not really worth the walk there or the money spent.

Amazing!!!!! Their chowder is gluten free (the person who makes it has a daughter with celiac). The lobster roll was perfect. The bread was some of the best I’ve had! The staff was very aware of celiac and cross contamination, they wiped everything down before making my food and they changed their gloves. Everything was clearly labeled. They say they can’t guarantee there won’t be CC but they take all the necessary steps and I didn’t get sick :)

Not interested in GF customers. GF bread is out for weeks at a time. Food is good and no CC just hard to support business that does not. Are about GF customers.

The manager names Michelle was very nice. Her father has celiac and is very knowledgeable on what is needed for cross contamination. They have yummy GF rolls that were great for the different rolls they serve. There soups are thickened with potato flour and are safe as well. Will def be back when in the area again.
