Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls In Virginia Beach

Mason’s famous Lobster Rolls officially opened at 3273 Shore Drive in Virginia Beach, and we were there for the opening. Convenient location paired with fast food preparation makes Mason the perfect spot for lunch or dinner in Hampton Roads.

Mason’s famous Lobster Rolls has been around for some time, but recently made it to the Seven Cities. Raleigh, NC, Washington, D.C., and Riopath, DE were the closest locations before. Now, foodies from Suffolk to Virginia Beach can find their famous Lobster Rolls right on Shore Drive.

Growing up in Hampton Roads, seafood has always been a big part of my life. But lobsters did not. I grew up on blue crabs, shrimp, scallops, oysters, and oysters because they are a local food. So, it goes without saying that lobster rolls were new territory for me. I didn’t really know what to expect. I’ve eaten lobster before, but never bread. At first, it sounded crazy but once I saw Mason’s famous Lobster Rolls, I knew I had to give it a try.

I’ve tried the Connecticut Roll because I like butter and I don’t like mayonnaise in much of anything. I can honestly say it was love at first bite. From the rich, buttery goodness of lobsters and toasted bread rolls to the delicate piles of lobsters – it was a blissful delight.

Beyond Lobster Roll

The clam chowder was loaded with little bits of potatoes and lots of oysters. The chowder was just the right consistency – not too thick and not at all thin. The flavor was delicious and it comes from me, a red soup fan, which means a lot. I haven’t tried the crab soup myself, but my stepmother was smiling from ear to ear while tasting hers.

The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. They answered our questions and made suggestions based on what we liked. We were taken care of right away and the food was ready in a very timely manner. It was neatly served and I appreciate the extra care that went into making sure the cups of soup do not overflow so there are no spills.

We enjoyed our food in the backyard where there is ample seating and a warm fire to make it more inviting.
