This is a $20 lobster roll lunch at this place! My first thought was that this is very skimpy. Then I tasted it, and it literally tasted like nothing. I didn’t even finish this thing. You know you’re in trouble when the best thing on the plate were the previously frozen sweet potato fries.
Judging from the crowd (2 out of only 4 tables occupied at lunch) they get some business from the nearby retirement home. I guess that’s why the music was from the 1950s. At least the waitress was very nice, but bad, expensive food and outdated atmosphere? Sign me up. NOT!
Luke’s is always good. I’ve been to the trucks and two nyc locations but never the one in Pier Village, but they are consistent. If that’s really all you want and you are determined to get it at Pier Village, believe it or not I will actually recommend you try the happy hour half price lobster rolls at Avenue on Wednesday or Friday. You will never find me saying good things about Avenue, except for exactly this - half price lobster rolls. They are teeny, but tasty and a great value at $6.50 for 3 of 'em.
Bummer. That is a fine looking lobster roll. We used to spend our summers on Cape Cod (god that sounds ridiculous typed out) but my grandmother lived there. Those were some amazing lobster rolls. And my parents always paid
I hope the pic I posted doesn’t make you think that was in any way a decent lobster roll. Not that you can tell from the pic but it was really small, think four bites if it helps. Small aside (although for $20 they should serve up a bigger one) it was also terrible.
But, I’m glad the thought brings back fond memories…
Now that I’m looking on my computer it looks like all claw meat too? Since we are talking about lobster roll memories, about 18 years ago I attended a wedding in Booth Bay Harbah in Maine, beautiful country up there. I remember the local Mc Donald’s actually served lobstah rolls and there were pretty dam good too!
