Wonderful!! Sat on the outside deck and enjoyed the view. Enjoyed the clam chowder, calamari and while steamed lobster. Everything was fabulous and the staff was very knowledgeable regarding my needs.

I have not been able to have clam chowder since my celiac diagnosis and I was able to today. It was absolutely delicious and some with the lobster grill cheese. They also have a few cider options either on tap or in a bottle. Not sure if I was able to have the downeast (the one on tap) because of CC but they had shacksbury cider in a can. Hostess and server very knowledgeable of celiac and did inform me that the fried seafood was gf but it’s in a shared frier. Absolutely recommended eating here. Plus if you’re into truffle anything they have a gf truffle better lobster roll..

Visiting Boston and wanted a GF lobster roll. Great options here. We got to try the trio roll with lobster, crab and shrimp as well as the lobster sampler with different seasonal flavors. Ordered through grub hub then called to discuss GF precautions, and they were very proactive.

Not much was marked GF on the menu, but the staff was incredibly knowledgeable. Most items were in fact gluten free. Excellent meal. Had the Clam Chowder, Lobster roll with GF bun and Haddock nuggets. most if not all fried food items are made with rice flour.

They were so cautious about my allergies and the food was straight delicious. They were kind enough to pull out their recipe and check for specific ingredients. They also asked if I was celiac to confirm what level of cross contamination was necessary for my dietary needs

I read reviews about this place and decided to try it based on the fact that you can get a lobster roll on GF bread. What an excellent choice! They were very attentive and cleaned everything before cutting the bread and making my food. The soups are all GF and the rolls were really good. Definitely recommend this place!

Ordered a gf lobster roll and got glutened.

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.

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.

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.

I got the trio, the lobster bisque, and the coleslaw. I loved the gf bread and out of all the rolls the lobster and shrimp tied. The coleslaw was a little lackluster but the lobster bisque was tasty and definitely well worth getting. I really enjoyed this meal.

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.

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.

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.

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.
