I followed the review recommendations and tried the shrimp tacos with homemade chips. It did not disappoint! The shrimp had spicy heat and were cooked to perfection. The taco shell was also homemade, and the sauce complimented all the deliciousness without being overwhelming. Two tacos...were filling with the chips, but the combination of flavors made me wish I ordered three. So good! I appreciated the curbside service during the global pandemic, and the service was excellent!More

The shrimp tacos are amazing! My husband got the Megan salad and it was really good. Our waitress was super nice. Great place!

Luke's is a little unassuming as you drive into their small parking lot, but the food and the service was great. It has a funky, eclectic feel with a small dining room to the left as you enter. I had a Kentucky Hot Brown for...the 1st time in 40 years and it was terrific and the homemade chips were fantastic. My wife liked her blackened chicken salad and the sweet tea was just right. They were playing Christmas music but had no Christmas decorations up, unfortunately. Our waitress was very good and we would certainly return to Luke's if in town again.More

We were impressed with Luke’s! I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had the Luke Burger. We both enjoyed our meal and liked their homemade chips. I would recommend and eat here again. Very affordable and casual!

We had lunch at Luke’s and highly recommend it. I had a cheeseburger and my husband had the shrimp po’boy. Both were very good. The sweet potato waffle fries were the best I’ve ever had. Emma was our server, and she was excellent.

My husband and I were visiting the area and decided to order takeout because we are still being cautious about dining in due to COVID-19. I found Luke’s Cafe after reading restaurant reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed!!! My husband very much...enjoyed the Classic Reuben with homemade chips. I had the Garden Grilled Chicken Salad, and it was incredible. Every ingredient was fresh and delicious. I am a huge tomato snob, and I would swear the tomatoes were picked from the vine today. They even wrapped the grilled chicken in foil so it would not melt the cheese and wilt the vegetables on my way back to the hotel. The homemade ranch dressing was creamy and yummy. We highly recommend Luke’s Cafe.More

The atmosphere here was really unique and quirky. I absolutely loved the funky vibe of the place. The food was fantastic! I had the fish tacos with sweet potato waffle fries and they were delicious. You can tell that a lot of care was put...into the menu and the food.More
