About Luke's Lobster

Luke's Lobster brings the sea to the city, anchored by a commitment to sustainably-sourced seafood, traceable back to the source.

Famous for its lobster rolls, Luke’s also serves crab and shrimp rolls, award-winning New England clam chowder, lobster bisque, a lobster tail salad, and seasonal specials like lobster mac and cheese, seafood grilled cheese, bread bowls, and warm grain bowls. Luke's work directly with fishermen they know and trust, and take great pride in an absolute ability to trace their seafood from ocean to plate.

Luke's Lobster is Maine's first vertically integrated seafood company which includes 28 restaurants, a processing and distribution facility and the Tenants Harbor Fisherman's Co-op, of which they were a founding member.

B Corp validates all the work we have done and continue to do for sustainable fisheries, our team, and our communities. B Corp provides the rigor and standards to ensure we remain transparent and constantly improve our business’s impact on the world.

The Change We Seek®

From day one, with only one small restaurant in New York’s East Village, to 28 restaurants and growing, a seafood company, and a fisherman’s co-op, we have always placed sustainability, transparency, and social responsibility as core values. We are committed to doing right by our people, from lobsterman to server, as we believe that without them we would not be able to offer consumers the best tasting, highest quality seafood. We feel we have a responsibility to preserve our coastal environments that we rely so heavily on, and are committed to giving back to support the health of the oceans and our fishing communities. B Corp is further proof of our mission, and a restaurant’s ability, to create positive change, not just to make a profit.

What makes us a better company?
