Luke's Lobster Restaurant Review

: Anyone longing for an authentic Maine lobster roll can enjoy the next best thing a lot closer to home at Luke's Lobster. Located down a steep flight of stairs, the subterranean space resembles a well-worn beach shack with rough, wooden tables and cedar shake-style shingles on the walls. Luke's, a mini-chain that's part of a trend of upscale, quick-service restaurants popping up all over Center City, keeps the menu as straightforward as the décor. On offer are lobster, crab and shrimp rolls, New England clam chowder and a changing soup of the day, and not much else. The signature lobster roll contains a quarter-pound of fresh lobster meat picked in Maine; it’s barely dressed with lemon butter, mayo and Luke's "secret spices" and served on a toasted split bun. All-natural Maine Root sodas are a nice touch and come in a range of flavors, from blueberry to ginger. The only quibble is that the lobster roll seems a bit dainty for the $15 price.
