They had the gluten-free bread I feel like they are known for. I ordered online and got it delivered but it was excellent as always.

No GF bread. Apparently they haven’t had any for some time. Got the 3-taster of shrimp, lobster and crab in plastic jars. Had to go back for butter and seasoning. Took forever to get it prepared. The lobster bisque was awesome but will never go back.

All locations should offer buttered, toasted gluten free hotdog buns. Lobster and seasoning are GF. Soups are GF. This specific location has french fries, and they are cooked in a dedicated fryer. You can call and confirm before you visit. When we mentioned our allergy, they told us they would chang gloves and sterilize the surfaces without us asking. Swoon!

We had a wonderful experience! My husband and I both had the lobster roll and lobster bisque. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and we had no gluten reactions at all! They even had gluten free caned alcoholic drinks. I am extremely gluten sensitive with celiac and my husband is gluten intolerant so this was such a treat! Would highly recommend!

This is a MUST if in San Francisco! Probably one of my top 3 places in the area. Had the Luke’s trio: mini lobster roll, crab roll, shrimp roll on the most delicious gf bread I’ve ever had at a restaurant. VERY TASTY! They are soaked in a bit of butter too which is heavenly. Also, had lobster bisque, it does not disappoint. Both soups are gf and all slider rolls can be made gf. I loved the trendy vibe inside, great 80/90’s light music and fun laid back atmosphere. 10 out of 10!

Had a fine experience here with my celiac partner. The price is insane, and the food is not bad. Unfortunately, we could only get cold lobster rolls because the hot lobster rolls get cross contamination. I paid 90 bucks for two small lobster rolls and a small soup. At least I got two bags of chips for free. Crazy. We were both hungry afterwards. There is a separate station for GF.
