Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls: 67 Rehoboth Ave




You know how the best things in life are the most simple? Think about it—making a friend laugh. Catching the tail end of a sunset. A picnic blanket.

Today, these authentic, genuine moments are increasingly hard to come by. Our world has become so complex, noisy and fast-paced—those beautiful moments of solace can be elusive.

Working 20 years as a seafood buyer in the restaurant business, Dan Beck always loved lobster. In his never-ending quest for quality seafood, he visited Maine and became inspired by the lobstermen there. Their ethos, their lifestyle. Tradition has taught them a thing or two about how to respect Maine’s waters and all that it inhabits—by keeping things simple and true.

Hauled right from the seas, the lobsters are immediately brought to modest, family-run coast-side facilities, where they are cooked over an open fire and prepared with care. Purely. Modestly. It is as though time stands still there—a beautiful pocket of the world unreliant on technology and trends. It works. Always has.

The result? Unparalleled. A lobster roll with flavor that no commercial entity could ever replicate. But it’s more than just a great taste—it’s an experience that summons a bygone era where life was more straightforward and meaningful. No emails, no “always on” media, no jam-packed schedule. It’s simple. Honest. It’s beautiful that way.

The idea hit us between the eyes. What if we brought a bit of Maine culture to other parts of the country? What if we opened a restaurant that champions this lobster roll experience? Give people a reason to pause—even for a moment—and nourish their stomachs and souls on good, wholesome food in a casual setting?

 This is Mason’s Famous Lobster RollsTM. From the ground up, Mason’s is designed with simplicity at our core—an homage to the Maine culture and tradition we so love and respect. No bells, no whistles, no pretention. Just fresh lobster prepared with care, with simple ingredients, Maine style.

Since we opened in 2014, we’ve been humbled by the response. Our flagship shop on Main Street in Annapolis MD, has enjoyed a happy stream of regulars and new converts roll in daily. The press likes to cover us and there’s just no shortage of awesome customer reviews.

It kind of goes to show that simple really is beautiful—let’s re-Maine true, friends. Come and join us.







"These hot dog bun sized lobster rolls are simply delicious. With multiple styles on their menu, it is hard to not find an instant favorite. Prefer it cold, go with the classic. Prefer warm? Go for the Connecticut. This has quickly become our go to eatery. Fresh, delicious, and leaves us wanting to go back again and again."

-- Lance L.

"Great, delicious food and nice staff. Ordered the Maine Classic Lobster Roll and a bowl of clam chowder. Both were very delicious and one of the best lobster places I have eaten at. Lobster was fresh. They give you a lot of lobster and also toast the roll. Glad they don't skimp on the lobster."

-- Ben M.

“Superb Lobster Roll in the middle of Crab Country”
“I was raised in New England, spent my summers in Maine. I know what fresh lobster tastes like, and what a lobster roll is supposed to be. Mason's knocks the lobster roll out of the park. Large pieces of lobster meat, perfectly cooked.”

"I absolutely love Mason's! The Connecticut roll (served warm, with butter) is my favorite and I can't get enough of the clam chowder! Great prices, friendly & knowledgeable staff. It's the perfect place for a quick, relaxing lunch in downtown Annapolis."

-- Arne R.

"We came today for lunch. We have family from Boston and know good lobster rolls and their lobster rolls were wicked awesome! So was the root beer! Can't wait to return!"

-- Darla G.

“Fast and really good eats”
"I was a bit skeptical at first and passed by several times. When I finally stopped I fell in love with the lobster rolls and had to try them all. Now I am a bit addicted."


“Best Maine lobster rolls in Maryland”
“Mason's Maine Lobster rolls are the closest I have come to having a real Maine Lobster roll outside of Maine. They are not shy of placing huge chunks of lobster on each buttery roll. I recommend this place to EVERYONE. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of these rolls. A must try!”
