BK Lobster offers a menu of signature lobster rolls, as well as crab legs, lobster tails, po’boys, wings, salads, sides, and soups.

Additional restaurant tenants coming to Baltimore Peninsula in 2024 include Ben & Jerry’s, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Slutty Vegan, Bar Vegan, the reopening of Rye Street Market by the Clyde’s Restaurant Group, a coffee shop and general store by Method Co., and a multi-vendor space called The Exchange.

The Baltimore Peninsula development team said additional deals have been reached and will be announced soon.
