Amazing food! GF bun and they cleaned all prep space. Highly recommend. However, it is expensive! Definitely should be $$$ or $$$$

EAT. HERE. Teeny little spot and easy to miss but omg my lobster roll was so so yummy. My husband and I each ordered one. When they came out one was much smaller than the other. I assumed the smaller one was mine (gf) but it wasn’t! It was the bigger bun and it was very yummy. Can’t miss.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Ate here for lunch and had the trio. Also the fries were safe, which I loved! Really delicious and didn’t get sick. GF roll for the lobster, crab and shrimp roll. Plenty of food and shared with hubby. Big chunks of lobster. First lobster roll since diagnosis. Would highly recommend.

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.

Good experience as they were attentive to my GF needs and had a good communication process to help make sure my food was gluten safe. And the food is good including their soups which are all GF.

We went to Luke's specifically for the gf lobster roll, and walked a long way to get there, lol. When we finally did, they were OUT of the gf rolls, sadly, but their lobster bisque and clam chowder are both gf, so that saved us. I had lobster bisque that was great, and my husband had the regular lobster roll. We didn't realize it would be cold, but it was SO flavorful! I got to pick some lobster from it, and the seasoning was just perfect. I'd love to go back when they have gf bread in stock!

Very nice dinner. Sat upstairs overlooking the water... very good very full lobster roll. Appreciate the safe gf but only wish establishments would know there are many yummy gf roll options these days besides Udi. Roll fell apart almost immediately... but experience was great.
