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.

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!!!

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.
