About Us

Your Local Upper East Side Neighborhood Institution

Luke’s Bar and Grill has been serving beloved dishes to Upper East Side clientele since 1991. We believe in creating a family-like atmosphere, sourcing local ingredients whenever possible, and serving fresh delicious meals to our customers at a fair price. We often hear that we are a hidden gem amongst the Yorkville locals. We are a small family owned restaurant and take great pride in daily grinding our own beef and meat for our burgers, turkey burgers, roasting our own turkey for turkey clubs and also making our own cult favorite salad dressings and baking our tasty desserts all under the same roof. As we like to put it, the only items we do not make in house are the bread and the ice cream!

The Right Place

Luke’s has great burgers, wonderful entrée salads, great share plates and of course the famous Mike Wallace meatloaf & mashed potatoes. Our regulars know that we are much more than a “pub”. The food quality is extremely high, and customers enjoy daily specials of fresh fish, beef, chicken and vegetables. If you are just getting off of work and need to unwind or looking for a great time, Luke's Bar and Grill is the right place to relax alone or with friends and family!

Luigi Militello

Luke’s Bar and Grill owner, Luigi Militello, never fails to make every visitor feel like a long time friend. Luigi started Luke’s Bar and Grill 30 years ago because he was always drawn to the allure of conversation and his love of food. He figured there is was no better way to fulfil his love for people and of food than to open up a restaurant where everyone was welcome to join and enjoy a great meal and drink amongst friends. His charisma speaks for itself as countless newcomers to Luke’s will attest that they will not only come back for a wonderful meal but to also visit their buddy, Luigi. We look forward to continuing to create more friendships and satisfied customers for years to come.
