    The Luke's Lobster Story

    Luke’s Lobster was born out of the dream of Maine native and third-generation lobsterman, Luke Holden, to bring the quality lobster rolls of his youth to the big city. He and business partner, Ben Conniff, opened their first lobster shack in NYC’s East Village in October 2009. Now, almost 15 years later, Luke’s Lobster brings traceable, sustainable seafood to guests across the globe. We work directly with fishermen to hand pick the best seafood, bring it straight to our own seafood company in Saco, ME and then ship directly to our shacks, grocery partners, and consumers. From the dock to our guests, we’ve cut out the middleman. This means higher quality, better tasting seafood for you to enjoy and a fairer price for our fishermen. We know our fishermen, we know where and how they fish, and we work together to protect our oceans for tomorrow.

    We are proud and passionate about the work environment we have fostered and are excited to see it continue to grow. We value diversity, creativity, transparency and open communication from all levels. Please visit www.lukeslobster.com for more inform
