This is why I love trip advisor! I went to Luke’s based on the great reviews and was not disappointed. The clam chowder is amazing and I was very impressed with the lobster roll. I WILL stop in here again before I leave NYC.

Luke's Lobster Roll is a must while in NYC! Even the crab and shrimp rolls are delicious but the lobster is my favorite! Small, quaint, sometimes a little crowded, but definitely worth it!

We discovered this place by accident but what an awesome place it is. Food was so delicious we were ate here three times during our seven day visit to New York. Well worth a trip back to New York just for the lobster.

The website says they can do mac & cheese without the lobster plus a few more options. I would check online and when you get there depending on the location you visit.
