Luke’s Lobster is rated one of the best seafood eats by DC locals at 800 17th St NW, Washington, DC. If you are looking for your seafood fix without the hassle of having to deal with setting a reservation or the long wait times, this is where you want to eat.
Not only is the food delicious; you’re also giving back to a great cause with every order. Luke’s Lobster supports “The Ocean Foundation” and local coastal communities; the people and towns where their seafood originates.
Once you walk in, you’re greeted by their friendly staff that’s eager to take your order. The simple, straightforward menu is easy to navigate with beautiful seating, made from reclaimed barn wood, sets the tone of the restaurant. Our food served on individual metal trays, reminded me of my childhood lunches as a kid.
We started with the Wild Blue Salad consisted of organic mixed greens, pickled wild blueberries, red cabbage, white beans, roasted sunflower seeds, organic honey balsamic. The salad had a beautiful mix of fresh flavors. Optional: Without any seafood or served with crab, shrimp, or lobster.
Friends and the locals recommended the famous Clam Chowder, and after taking the first bite, we could see why. It was delicious!
Luke’s Trio was last to come out. A taste of all the rolls! 1/2 fresh lobster, crab and shrimp (all wild catch). Three split top buns with melted lemon butter, mayo, and their secret seasoning were light and filling. Yummy!
Round up your friends & family and head over to Luke’s Lobsters for a weekend outing or if you’re a lover of seafood.

About The Ocean Foundation
The Ocean Foundation (501(c)3) is a unique community foundation with a mission to support, strengthen, and promote those organizations dedicated to reversing the trend of destruction of ocean environments around the world. The Ocean Foundation works with donors who care about our coasts and oceans to provide financial resources to marine conservation initiatives through the following lines of business: Committee and Donor Advised Funds, Field of Interest grantmaking Funds, Fiscal Sponsorship Fund services, and Consulting services. The Ocean Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of individuals with significant experience in marine conservation philanthropy, complemented by an expert, professional staff, and a growing international advisory board of scientists, policymakers, educational specialists, and other top experts. We have grantees, partners, and projects on all the world’s continents.
We work with a community of donors who care about the coasts and oceans. In this manner, we grow the financial resources available to support marine conservation in order to promote healthy ocean ecosystems and benefit the human communities that depend on them. We operate using a well-established business model (the community foundation) to serve donors and partners interested in marine conservation. TOF does this by increasing the capacity of conservation organizations, hosting projects and funds, and supporting those working to improve the health of ocean species globally. To do this, we raise millions of dollars each year to support marine conservation. These funds come from individuals, corporate donors, private foundations, and governments. We meet our mission through five lines of business: Fiscal Sponsorship Fund services, Field of Interest grantmaking Funds, green Resort Partnerships, Committee and Donor Advised Funds and Consulting services.
Because of the dynamic nature of our business, including the many projects that we host, we have a variety of powerful resources that we can bring to bear on any ocean conservation project. Our geographic community is the 71% of the earth’s surface covered by ocean. Our human community includes the donors, governments, and grantees that are engaged in ocean conservation anywhere in the world.
